Why is Four Roses Single Barrel at Barrel Strength unique?
Four Roses is the only Bourbon distillery that combines five proprietary yeast strains with two separate mashbills to produce 10 distinct and handcrafted Bourbon recipes, each with its own unique character, spiciness and rich fruity flavors. From time to time, a limited number of exceptionally smooth and complex barrels from any or all of their 10 Bourbon recipes present themselves to Four Roses Master Distiller, Jim Rutledge. These special barrels are then made available for selection by retailers to purchase. Once chosen, each selection is bottled and private labeled as a non-chill filtered Single Barrel at Barrel Strength in limited quantities.
Sherlock’s has just received our first Four Roses Single Barrel at Barrel Strength bottling in time for the holidays. This Private Selection bottling is recipe OBSK. The taste profile is rich in spiciness and full bodied. The Bourbon has been aged for 11 years and 5 months and has been bottled at a barrel strength of 55.3% alcohol or 110.6 proof. These are only 132 bottles of this exceptional whiskey available at Sherlock’s. The retail price per bottle is $59.99. Quite a value for a whiskey of this quality and limited quantity. A very nice gift for a Bourbon collector looking for a totally unique selection.
