TASTING NOTES FROM THE CHIEF BLENDING OFFICER
Nose: Deep brown
Taste: Sweet and spicy, the outer palate is coated with sugary molasses and dark rum notes while the rear palate is inundated with mature oak and booze-soaked red grapes.
Finish: Medium-long, the rum and barrel tannins linger in a sweet yet oak-filled experience.
Whisky Advocate says:
Each batch of Four Gate whiskey is different from the others, and nearly all of the company’s releases have been bourbons with unique finishes. Our Spring issue, which just came out, has three new reviews for the brand: Split Stave (91 points), Outer Loop Orbit (92 points), and Foundation, a 9 year old straight bourbon (93 points).
