About Four Gate Andalusia Key Batch 9 Bourbon Whiskey
Four Gate Whiskey Company started releasing its small-batch expressions with innovative finishes in 2019, gaining much critical acclaim from the start. Batches 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, and 8 all received Whisky Advocate scores of 90 points or higher, and various well-regarded writers and online reviewers named batches 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 10 amongst the top 10 American whiskeys of 2019 and 2020.
Four Gate Whiskey Company’s Release #9, Andalusia Key, is a Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey finished in Oloroso Sherry and dark rum casks. This expression was made by 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, and bottled at cask strength of 121.2 proof. A very limited series of 1,309 bottles was produced.

About Four Gate Whiskey Company
In 2018 Bill Straub and Bob D'Antoni, both whiskey enthusiasts, founded the Four Gate Whiskey Company in Kentucky and launched their mission to release extra small batches of unique combinations of whiskey and finish barrels. Specializing in sourced whiskey blends and partnering with Kelvin Cooperage, a family-owned barrel supplier founded in 1963 in Scotland and currently based in Louisville, the combinations of quality whiskey blends and used barrels they put together are truly ecclectic. From bourbon finished in cognac and dark rum casks to split stave casks, there is really no idea too wild for Four Gate and they make it work.
There are not many things more American than bourbon, and although most of it is produced in Kentucky, it can be produced all over the USA. It must be made with at least 51% corn and bottled at 40% ABV or higher. So why not give this American classic a try?
Sweet fruits, fortified wine, molasses, and vanilla on the nose introduce the underlying bourbon and rum finish on the palate, with traditional rye-bourbon spice and dark burnt brown sugars on the periphery. The finish is medium-short, dry and sherry-forward, with a pepper spice that lingers a bit on the rear palate.
