Midway’s Private Selection Four Roses Barrel Strength Single Barrels Have Arrived!

You read it correctly… Midway purchased 2 unique barrels of bourbon from what many people believe to be America’s best distillery. Four Roses has 2 mash bills (grain recipe) and 5 proprietary yeast strains.  Multiply that out and you have 10 distinct bourbons. When you purchase an entire barrel from Four Roses Distillery you are given the choice of any of the recipes. Through blind tastings our staff chose 2 fabulous bourbons and here are the details;

“E” Mash Bill- 75% Corn, 20% Rye, 5% Malted Barley
“K” Yeast- Light spiciness, light caramel, full bodied

This bourbon is all about spice. The nose has some caramel and vanilla but an orange spice comes through big time and continues all the way through. The palate is rich and smooth with a little heat at the end. A distinctive and fine bourbon.

Recipe- OBSV
“B” Mash Bill- 60% Corn, 35% Rye, 5% Malted Barley
“V” Yeast- Light fruitiness, light vanilla, caramel and creamy

Big time butterscotch, vanilla and caramel with apple and pear explode from the glass. The palate is super creamy with more butterscotch, caramel, apple and pear. The finish has some heat as expected but is smooth to the core.  Doesn’t get any better then this!
