About: Four Gate is proud to announce the release of Andalusia Key Rye. This release utilizes batch #9’s popular Spanish Oloroso-Dark Rum barrels sourced through Kelvin Cooperage in Louisville, KY. These barrels were originally used to age Spanish Oloroso Sherry and then Dark Rum in the Florida Keys. Company founders Bill Straub and Bob D’Antoni chose a blend of 7-year Straight Rye Whiskey for Andalusia Key Rye.
Some fans may wonder the difference between this and the previously released Batch 9. “You’ll note a few similarities,” said Chief Blending Officer Bill Straub. “But the underlying whiskey is very different in this batch. It’s peppery and floral, which really takes to the finishing well. It’s very unique. This batch comes off slightly less dry,” he added.
