Buy Four Roses 125th Anniversary 2013 Limited Edition Small Batch

A mix of 3 out of 10 Four Roses mashbill recipes all different in the age. Particularly, the edition commemorating the 125th anniversary has three recipes: OBSV (18yrs), OBSK (13yrs) and OESK (13 years). The standard recipe for the Four Roses small batch is composed of a four-recipe mix (OBSO, OBSK, OESK, OESO) that contains no age-related information. The small batch standard is bottle at 90 proof but this limited release was released at the strength of a barrel.

NOSEWhen I held the glass to my nose, I was welcomed with a wonderful mix of scents. The light traces from wheat and fresh fruit, and floral aromas stand out, with subtle hints from fresh nuts as well as brand new wood.

I was astonished to discover that with 100+ proof Bourbon you must try extremely hard to discern any trace of alcohol. It’s not burning, but an exquisitely scented whiskey I was constantly returning to to take a closer look throughout the course of tasting.

I was hoping that this bourbon would score higher, but I left the tasting somewhat dissatisfied. It’s not a problem this is a exquisite bourbon that is definitely worth trying. In the light of the fact that it was a popular favorite bourbon from 2013 I was thrilled when we finally got the bottle in Breaking Bourbon.

I had hoped to be amazed however, it didn’t blow my socks off like the other releases of 2013 like Elijah Craig 21yr, for instance. The release by Four Roses starts off strong with a fantastic nose but it dwindles as it progresses.
I’d still suggest you give it the taste if you can find it at the local bourbon shop however don’t be disappointed for not being able to purchase an individual bottle to add to your collection.

PalateWhat struck me immediately was a mix of leather from the past and cedar that resembled the cigar box. In addition, the berry aroma emanating from the nose persists through the mouth and there are subtle scents of sweet berries as well as dried fruits. A strange combination, however it works.

endThe finish was much more subtle and shorter than I would like. It has a significant increase in the aroma and palate, however the final taste was not as satisfying as what it offered. It was drying as aged leather, with some tobacco leaf hints. I also noticed faint traces of a slight bitterness, akin to the orange rind.

Valu At $85 this is nearly three times more expensive than an ordinary bottle from Four Roses small batch. While it’s fun to sample different flavors and to say that you’ve tried a unique bottle of Four Roses, I have difficult justification for the cost. The regular Small Batch release can be affordable at just $30, and it’s a great value for the money.

When I compared the 125th anniversary release to the regular tiny batch of bourbon, I came off feeling somewhat disappointed by the 125th Anniversary release. For the price of $85, I had hoped for an bourbon that would blow me off – one that exceeded the typical small batch releases.

All in all A huge buildup, but an unsatisfactory end. uniqueness The fact is that Four Roses releases a limited edition small batch each year, this one is as special as they come. The standard small batch recipe makes use of four varieties (OBSO, OBSK, OESK, OESO) versus the three strains in the 125th anniversary edition (OBSO at 18 years, OBSK at 13yrs, OESK 13 years old).

It’s interesting to see the way that mixing different strains together for this release affects the flavor profile of the typical smaller batch bottle. The total number of bottles was 12,468 released (approximately 8000 bottles sold in US markets) and, like many exclusive Four Roses releases, this edition was snapped up quickly by people who are not in the market for it.
