I continue to see the percentages of each recipe referred to by various bloggers, but haven’t seen that info directly from a FR source. The “Paste” article refers to a “media tasting”, so perhaps the info was released there.  

Did a pick today at 4R with Brent Elliot and though he couldn’t remember the exact percentages off the top of his head, what he remembered is very close to what was posted in the Paste article.

Update:  Wife and I traveled to Four Roses to pick up my bottle of the 2020 Small Batch Limited Edition Release.  You had to make a reservation as to when you would be there to pick up your bottle.  We went at noon today.  We were the only customers there.  Bottle was $159.99, #83 out of over 14,000.  Autographed by Brent Elliot.  No mention of which specific variations are in this release, nor in what percentages.  Disappointing in that respect.  Also picked up a new 4R glass to enjoy it in.  Photos:

that's really really cool.  I do hope I can find a bottle or 5 of this one.

Very nice!  The autograph, while not something I covet, is a nice inclusion for the lottery winners.  I think 4R openly said they would be taking recipe off back label starting in 2019 right?  I do think its a shame as those "stats" are nice to have on the back of the bottle.

 

Love the glencairn as well!

At least they still list the recipes and ages on their website. It would be nice if they gave %s but oh well

although not official by any means, I saw on Paste magazine the following:

— 12-year-old OBSV — 30%
— 12-year-old OESV — 25%
— 16-year-old OESK — 25%
— 19-year-old OBSK — 20%

has anyone tried it?  I'm curious to hear how it is!  I didn't win the MM or the general public lottery so I have to live vicariously through one of you for now.

I haven't opened mine yet, but I did receive an email from Four Roses containing a link to a short (5 minute) YouTube video featuring their master Distiller Brent Elliott explaining this year's release.  Interesting to watch and informative:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPqZvsYp3Y0&feature=youtu.be&utm_source=2020+LE+Public+Lottery+-+Winners&utm_campaign=4b42cecde5-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2020_09_09_06_08_COPY_01&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_486b74a1c9-4b42cecde5-194694426

I'm not usually a big 4R fan but I thought 2019 LESmB was fantastic.  It was probably the best pour I had from last year.  I thought Al Young release was great..had a superb nose.  I had a bottle of the 17.  I liked it.  Was very fruity.  Apparently many cult members didn't care for that one.

The Al Young was particularly good when the hotel was pouring “hometown doubles” as pictured for $16.00. The bottle had mistakenly been placed on the bottom shelf as if it was a standard Small Batch.

What a find and a hefty pour at that!
