    But he's also serious when he says "All of them." If you don't try everything, you'll always be wondering.

    If it's your first time back with Four Roses in some time and you're looking for one to win you over I'd say OBSK is your best bet.

    Personally, I prefer the small batch, but I think it happens to rub me just the right way. Since you like older bourbons, I would recommend the standard single barrel for starters. It isn't all that old (ranging from 8 to 10 if I recall) but they tend to show a lot of barrel influence. Plus it's not a huge investment.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    I'm drinking some TPS OBSQ right now. It's fantastic, it gets better with every pour. When I bought it, I also got an OBSK. At first it was clear that OBSK was my favorite of the two; now, not so clear - both are great; these are some wonderful bourbons. I don't think you can go wrong.

    My best advice is for you to evaluate the mashbills and recipes and decide on one or two that appeal the most to you. But I think that ultimately the only answer is "all of them."

    I'm also a big fan of the Small Batch.

    I also generally prefer the standard small batch over anything else 4R I've had, including the single barrel and the latest LE small batch. It is elegant, complex, and smooth without being muddled. The single barrel seems more one-dimensional to me.

    Stu had one at the Houston get together that was just outstanding but I can't remember the mashbill on it. Stu would you care to share it with us?

    Re: Which Four Roses expression should I buy?

    Ive only had 2 of the expressions listed. In my opinion the small batch is better than the Single Barrel and cheaper, so its the Small batch hands down for me. Went through 2 bottles of it last month
