Bourbon Whiskey - WHISKEY
Four Roses Single Barrel, Barrel Strength OESK
1oz $16 - 2oz $24
Made from our lower rye mashbill and spicy yeast strain, OESK creates a balanced, mellow and rich Bourbon. With less rye spice than the higher-rye B mashbill, the E mashbill allows the subtle baking spice flavors of the K yeast strain to be more apparent.
With its elegant and mellow character, OESK is one of our most versatile recipes. Its spice blends well with the fruit, floral, or herbal tones of the other yeast strains, adding complexity and balance to the Bourbon. Because of this, we use it as one of the recipes to handcraft Four Roses Bourbon, Small Batch and Small Batch Select.
Its delicate, spicy flavors also develop well with the influence of the oak, so many OESK batches are exceptional at older ages and are often found in our Limited Editions.
OESK is, without a doubt, one of our most prolific recipes. In addition to the Bourbons listed above, it has been part of 10 of our last 12 Limited Edition releases, including our newest release: 2020 Limited Edition Small Batch. What's even better, Wall Street Journal-bestselling author, Bourbon curator and taster, Fred Minnick, just released his list of "Top 30 Bourbons of the Century So Far," and it includes four Four Roses Limited Edition Small Batch Bourbons, three of which contain, you guessed it-OESK.
