Four Roses Whiskey Revolution Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Bourbon Whiskey is the first of these casks, and is made from a mash of 60% corn, 35% rye and 5% malted barley. While straight bourbon must be aged for a minimum of two years, this barrel of Four Roses Bourbon was aged for 9 years and 10 months in a newly charred, American white oak cask (Cask 81-2M). In addition, while most distilleries age bourbon in warehouses that are many stories high, Four Roses ages its bourbon in a one-story warehouse to ensure that each barrel is aged in a similar environment. This particular cask is described by Four Roses as “OBSO” — each letter represents a unique criteria, including the location of production, mashbill, type of whiskey (“straight”) and specific yeast strain. Once the bourbon had aged, it was bottled at cask strength (117.6 proof).
