FOUR GATE IS OPENING...

Release 9, Andalusia Key

OUR WHISKEY

Release 9, Batch 9

Andalusia Key

 

After releasing unfinished whiskeys for batches 7 and 8, Four Gate Whiskey Company went back to its roots, blending 3 different Kentucky Straight bourbons and aging them in dark rum casks from the Florida Keys and blending two Kentucky Straight bourbons and finishing them in Oloroso Sherry casks from the Andalusia region of Spain. The resulting whiskeys were then combined to create Andalusia Key.

TASTING NOTES FROM THE CHIEF BLENDING OFFICER

  • Appearance:   Dark Reddish-Amber
  • Nose: Sweet fruits, fortified wine, molasses, and Vanilla
  • Taste: Where the sherry plays a big role on the nose, the underlying bourbon and rum finish take the forefront on the palate with traditional rye-bourbon spice and dark burnt brown sugars on the periphery.
  • Finish: Medium-short in length, the finish is dry and sherry-forward with a pepper spice that lingers a bit on the rear palate.
