Nice smooth nose. Great Palate. Very sweet with cherry notes. Even better finish - medium length. The thing I like most about this bourbon is 1. It's very unique in comparison to all bourbons, but not too abstract. 2. It's different going from the nose to palate to the finish. It's obvious to pick out different notes in those 3 areas. I love that about a whisky. Some call it complexity and others call it.. who knows. But anyway. I'd say for $40 it's one of the best I've tried.

@Maltmark, do you know which one of the ten Four Roses bourbons this one is?

Not sure, but here's what's on the bottle: DN 32-5M. Can you explain this?

@Maltmark, I do not know the interpretation of DN 32-5M. I think that those are internal warehouse and/or batch numbers. I really don't understand why Four Roses continues to sell single barrel products without clearly identifying which of their 10 formulae they are using in that particular bottle. When Four Roses sells private barrels through, say, Binny's, they almost always have the Four Roses Formula Code listed, so that you can identify which of their 2 mashbills and which of their 5 yeasts was employed in that particular barrel. Their 10 bourbons do taste quite a bit different from one another. Some I like just ok. Others are really great. Some I would buy bottles of. Others I would pass on.

That's good to know, and That explains it, because every time I've tasted the single barrel, it's been a little different. It's kinda like a box of chocolates.... you never know what you will get.

I agree with Victor, when I buy the Single Barrel from Binny's I go for the OESK or the OBSK. Talk about a good deal Binny's had them on special over the holiday for 49.99. 10-11 yr Barrel Proof Goodness!
