About The Bourbon
This will be the highest proof of any of the other limited editions in this small-batch series from Four Roses.
Non-chill filtered and bottled at 114.2 proof, the 2021 Limited Edition Small Batch features four different hand-selected batches aged 12 to 16 years including:
58% 16-year-old OESV (Delicate fruit and caramel, 20% rye)
23% 12-year-old OESK (Baking spice, 20% rye)
13% 16-year-old OBSV (Delicate fruit and rye notes, 35% rye)
6% 14-year-old OBSQ (Rye and light floral essence, 35% rye)
“Hand-selecting the barrels to make up our annual limited edition bottling is one of my most rewarding experiences each year. The ability to work with 10 bourbon recipes each with distinct characteristics opens up endless possibilities.” Elliott said. “This year’s release brings a proof higher than any of the past Limited Editions, creating robust complexity and layers of flavors resulting from the variety of constituent batches and recipes.”
