Thoughts: Shows off much more oak than any of the standard releases from Four Roses. which is either a good or bad thing depending on how much oak you like. I’m digging the fruity/floral notes that the Q yeast is bringing. It’s one of my favorites to pick up when I find it as a single-barrel pick of Four Roses. My wife loves this one. I really like it, but it’s showing just a touch too much oak for me. Don’t get me wrong, it is very good. And if I happen to be chosen in a lottery to buy one, I’ll probably jump at the chance.
