VERY LIMITED ANNUAL RELEASE:
"Duncan's Barrel No. 6"
(Four Roses, 11 Years, 3 Months, 2 Days Old; OBSQ)
+
Our "Duncan's Barrel" release is always very special to me. 
This bottling, in particular, is a knock out. 
I hope you have the chance to taste some and add it to your collection.

Every year Allie and I (and now HENRY!) travel South to our most beloved distillery, Four Roses.  We head to the Cox Creek rickhouses and delight in some of the most exceptional and old barrels available.  This year we were blessed with the opportunity to taste some very old whiskey and ultimately select three barrels for different bottlings this winter.  The first, released just two weeks ago, was entitled "Home Turf."  An OESK recipe (a long-time favorite recipe of mine) and a classic expression of the unexpected from Four Roses.  A powerful but easy-drinking monster, "Home Turf" yielded a very low bottle count.  At the time of this writing, only three bottles remain.
+
And now, our second Single Barrel Release of the Fall:
Duncan's Barrel No. 6 is unabashedly my favorite pick to date, since the beginning...  Well, I suppose with the exception of Duncan's "Secret" Barrel (a 30 bottle run released in the fall of 2014)...but, I digress.  "No. 6" is some of the oldest whiskey we've had the pleasure of bottling and this release is special.  In the glass, classic Four Roses, and, then a wave of Southern Aromas like Lemon, Black Tea, Brown Sugar...the palate... coming on in a subtle calm and then a rolling tide of flavor that sneaks up on you but never quite belies the 108+ proof.  Snappy and dynamic, "smooooth" 'n easy, all the intensity and complexity to encourage setting your phone down and picking up a forgotten book, or staying up a little too late with friends.

Please note that this is a limited single barrel quantity of 125 bottles.
