The Ohio Division of Liquor Control (OHLQ) has announced 13 barrels worth of Four Roses Private Selection Barrel Strength hitting stores for one day only on May 11 at 9am at select locations for a price of $99.99 + tax. This is the same as a release last year, but the price has jumped $25 (or 33%).

The 13 bottles have the following tasting notes:

  • Barrel #PS-11-2V - Recipe: OBSO - Aromas of rich red fruit enchant the nose and palate, warmed with notes of oak and rye spice.

  • Barrel #LW-61-1P - Recipe: OESK - Aromas of rye spice and warm vanilla open to cascading flavors of rich molasses and warm baking spices.

  • Barrel #LW-41-1S - Recipe: OESV - This sweet expression features caramel and orchard fresh notes of stone fruit and pear.

  • Barrel #VW-90-1C - Recipe: OBSK - Warm spice, vanilla, and dark fruit combine for a bold, complex palate with a long, lingering finish.

  • Barrel #PN-52-1D - Recipe: OESO - A dynamic harmony of fruit flavors: ripe red apple, maraschino cherry, and stone fruit are perfectly paired with luxurious notes of toffee; a viscous mouthfeel leads to a rich finish.

  • Barrel #PN-52-1E - Recipe: OESO - Bright flavors of apple and dark fruit are balanced by a viscous mouthfeel rich with butterscotch and toffee notes.

  • Barrel #UN-48-2E - Recipe: OBSQ - Fresh floral notes captivate the palate, uplifted with light, berry-forward accents.

  • Barrel #UN-48-2F - Recipe: OBSQ - Bright, complex floral and fruit-forward notes are balanced by rye spice.

  • Barrel #SS-15-2C - Recipe: OESF - A unique aroma of mint, toffee, and honey on the nose and palate gain depth and complexity with touches of oak and spice.

  • Barrel #UN-56-1H - Recipe: OESQ - Cherry blossom and floral aromas open to a delicate fruit flavor that sparkles with notes of spice and honey.

My Take

Just in time for Mother's Day, this is a good chance to score some Four Roses Barrel Strength. I'd prefer to have an age statement and proof for each barrel so it's hard to say how good of a deal these are. Also, I'm not sure how they justify the 33% price increase, but here were are.
