Four Roses Limited Edition 2016 Small Batch
Four Roses Small Batch Limited Edition 2016 For Sale
2016 Small Batch Barrel Strength Limited Edition release was hand selected by the new master distiller Brent Elliott who worked with the now retired Jim Rutledge. The 2016 was a very limited release with this bottle being 1445 of a mere 2838.
The 2016 incorporates three bourbons, each with a different one of Four Roses 10 mash bills: 12-year-old OESO, 12-year-old OBSV, and 16-year-old OESK. It's the first time in seven years that the OESO has made an appearance in this release. According to a news release, Elliott selected the OESO recipe as the blend’s anchor recipe because his tasting panel was “able to highlight its exceptional fruitiness and balance it out with more age and spice from the two other recipes.”E = its high-corn mash bill of 75 percent corn, 20 percent rye and 5 percent malted barley, and O = one of its five yeast strains known best for its “rich fruitiness, light vanilla, caramel and full bodied” accents.
