Four Roses Single Barrel OBSO

One of this week’s featured bottles is a 2023 single barrel from Bourbon World of Four Roses OBSO recipe, featuring 35% rye, with the fruit forward “O” yeast, weighing in at 109.4 proof. I LOVE the lower proof 4R picks because they get more and more drinkable with no dilution of flavor. This year’s OESO was a standout to me for it’s intense sugar coated pecan aroma and extremely bright fruit and gentle oak finish. Some of these Four Roses Barrel Proof picks when they are lower proof are just down right elegant, and this one certainly fits that description.
