This is the store selection from Oak Liquor Cabinet in Austin, TX. It’s a single barrel OBSQ.
O - Distilled at Four Roses in Lawrenceburg, KY
B - 65-30-5 mash bill
S - Straight Whiskey
Q - Floral Essence
Mashbill: 60% corn, 35% rye, 5% malted barley
Abv: 110 proof (55% ABV)
Age: 9 years 10 month
Nose: Floral and sweet with a bit of cherry and a hint of oak
Taste: A little harsh for me but still sweet with cherries, oak, baking spice and vanilla. A little floral but not as much as the nose.
Finish: Long finish with lingering cherry and spice. Probably my favorite part of this whiskey
Nose: The ice definitely cuts the nose though the floral aroma survives it
Taste: Rich, smooth and sweet. Removes any harshness present when it was neat but otherwise tastes very similar if not a little sweeter.
Finish: Just as good as neat
A sweet bourbon for sure but I have a bit of sweet tooth when it comes to drinking. It’s super hot here in Texas so definitely preferred it on the rocks. This was the whiskey that inspired me to start reviewing on Reddit
8 - an excellent bottle I’ll buy from time to time
