2016 Four Roses Elliots Select Barrel Strength

For the first time Four Roses Bourbon released Elliott’s Select bourbon, a rare Single Barrel bourbon. The bourbon will be Brent Elliott’s first limited edition release as the master distiller.  Brent Elliott became master distiller in September 2015 and hand-selected the 14-year-old OESK, one of the 10 unique Four Rose’s bourbons.  Bottled at barrel strength this particular bottle is from Barrel No. 47-2W with a 115.2 a.b.v.

The nose is toasty and nutty.  The taste is sweet to start but balances later with pepper and spice.  The finish is dry with the barrel notes coming through.
