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.
