Soon the waiting will be over

The day is near. These days all the Four Roses Bourbon fans are waiting for the release of the 2014 Four Roses Single Barrel Limited Edition. The 11-year-old OESF bourbon is expected to hit the shelves literally any day now. According to the manufacturer, the OESF recipe features 75% corn, 20% rye, and 5% malted barley. A straight whiskey, it is full bodied with notes of mint and fruits.

Every year, the release of Four Roses Bourbon’s Single Barrel Limited Edition is an exciting event. It is not to say that you cannot buy it. Go online and you may still be able to order one bottle of the 2013 release from France. However, for us Sacramento locals, there is nowhere locally you can go to pick up such a bottle. Your hope is on the 2014 release and you pray that the day it hits the local store shelves is the same day you happen to walk into the store.

I tried to reserve a bottle at one local wine store but my request was politely rejected. The second store said yes, took my name and phone number, and sold me a bottle of Four Rose Single Barrel Private Selection from the locked display cabinet. It cost almost double compared to the regular Single Barrel ones but I liked the specific recipe (OBSO, said to be flowery like rose pedals). I am saving it for later if I end up not getting the promised (well sort of) reservation. At least I will have something good to drink on my birthday (in June).

Now all I can do is waiting. Fortunately, it’s coming soon, very soon.
