    What Proof are your 4R SB?

    I'm at work and can only remember one of mine, and will add a couple others later, but curious what proof you all are seeing on the 4RSBs?

    I may just be mis-remembering the others, but I picked up an OBSK yesterday evening that came out at ~59. I expected it to be a little lower than the 2013LE as its 3-4 years younger, but I believe my LE was around ~67 so quite a difference between those barrels.

    Re: What Proof are your 4R SB?

    I recently picked up two different store picks from the same place, one OBSF and one OBSO. They're both the same age (10 years, 3 months IIRC) and they were both bottled the same month, but the OBSO is somewhere between 107-114 proof (can't remember off the top of my head) and the OBSF is 127 proof. So they vary quite a bit even when they're the same age.

    Ours were 117-121 proof. I have seen picks as low as 105 proof and as high as 126 proof.

    Re: What Proof are your 4R SB?

    I've got around 25 single barrels representing all 10 recipes (both private selections and LEs), with a range of 105 (Shopper's Vineyard OBSV) to 126 proof (Jackies FW&S OESV). The average is ~114 proof, and there is no clear age-proof correlation (sez the scatter plot). The oldest two by far, a couple of 17 year FR gift shop bottles, are 110 proof.

    Adding mine. Not as much variation in the obsk as I remembered.

    Obso - 9y 8m, 126.5

    Obsk - 13y, 121

    Obsk - 9y 4m, 117

    OBSK - 52.8% (great balance, love this bourbon)
    OESO - 55.2% (new to the stable, light and fruity, a great summer drink on rocks)
    OBSV - 62.0% (a spice bomb, everything I would've hope the standard at BP would be)
    OESV - 57.7% (new to the bunker)
    OESQ - 58.9% (in the running for my favorite bourbon ever, great story and fantastic pour)

    Interesting - I got a bottle from the barrel next to yours: RN 85-4F; also OESQ, bottled April 2014 (10 yr 1 mo), 60.7%.
