Four Roses 8 Year 9 Month Old "K&L Exclusive OESQ" Single Barrel Cask Strength Bourbon (750ml)

SKU #1333413

If you're fixin' for some Four Roses going into the holiday season, we've got you covered with two new potent potions that I picked out at the distillery this past September. The single casks from Cox's Creek warehouse are always among the most coveted bottles that we bring in directly, and with allocations on lock down from the distillery, our demand for cask-strength, single-barrel Four Roses has never been higher! The moderately proofed OESQ is a 53.9% ABV specimen for those who enjoy a bit of banana in their bourbon. The nose is a mix of bananas foster and pencil shavings with accents of baking spices in the background. There's more banana on the mid-palate and the more peppery oak spices come out for the finish. It's a balanced bourbon from front to back, with equal parts fruit, oak, and savory/sweet spices. At 8 years and 9 months of age, it's in a lovely spot. (David Driscoll, K&L Spirits Buyer)

Our Four Roses Single Barrel Cask Strength are always among our most popular offerings we have for bourbon and as my co-worker Jeff points out the various mash bills they use can mean for very different bottling. This offering brings lovely aromas of spice and fruit with a nutty richness. There is a lot of wild spice notes here with a fun balance between the sweet fruit/caramel notes and the savory spice notes. Although this is softer than some of the single barrels we have carried a little water definitely helps open this up and bring out the beauty within.

I like the single cask selections because it is nice to see how different individual casks are from one another. With Four Roses there is the extra dimension that they have different mash bills. The OESQ offers an expressive and delicate nose.In the mouth it is complex with spice undertones and a nice mouth feel. There is a nice finish with a subtle vanilla nuance.I tasted this single cask with a splash of water.
