This year's limited edition Small Batch Bourbon release is comprised of three "low-rye" mashbills. With a mashbill of 75% corn, 20% rye, and 5% malted barley, this is still considered to be a high-rye bourbon compared to most other bourbons on the market. Yeast strains highlighting "slight spice" and "delicate fruit" are incorporated. The three bourbons recipes used were a 15 year-old OESK, 13 year-old OESK, and a 12 year-old OESV. Bottled at cask strength of 53.65% ABV, there are 13,800 bottles available beginning September 2017.

Tasting Notes

"This takes the Four Roses fruit & floral character to the extreme with a nose of plum, fig and apricot jam plus tart cherry and dry grains. The palate is fruity and sweet with a balance from coconut, leather and hints of lavender and green apple. Finish begins with sweet fruit followed by leather and pepper, plus cinnamon and clove."
