    Re: Four Roses Small Batch vs Single Barrel

    My vote is for the SmB. I love the FRSB and pretty much everything that Jim Rutledge produces ---- especially the selected SB at barrel proof. But the SmB (and I would include the Mariages and SmB LEs) gives a complexity and taste experience that simply can't be found in any other bourbon.

    I was fortunate enough over the holidays to be able to get a few TPS 1Bs. So far, the OBSQ is my least favorite. Don't get me wrong, I like them all...just this one the least. Can't put a finger on it but your description starts to put into words this bottle for me. Maybe it just needs some air for a while..don't know. But, it is definitely different from the rest and any other 4R1B I've had past & present. Further, the "exoticness" of it has turned me away from spending even more dollars on the 2011 LE 1B which is also OBSQ, just a couple of yrs older.

    I want try the OBSK next as well as more OESO & some OESF.

    Funny story. I walked in to buy 4 Roses and I left with a PHC wheater instead.
    But I think I'll probably grab both 4Rs next time.
