Four Gate Whiskey Company Bluegrass Trilogy #2

  • Distiller:

    Undisclosed

  • Bottler:

    Four Gate

  • ABV:

    62.45%

  • Age:

    NAS

  • Price:
    $$$$$
  • Intro:

    Distilled by an undisclosed producer, this batch features 6yr, 9yr and 12yr Kentucky bourbon's blended and then finished in a variety of casks. This is chapter 2, and features finishing in Apera Sherry and Dark Rum casks.

  • Nose:

    Sweet, berry forward. Nutty, sherry driven. Fresh baked bread, toffee, honey, heather, raisin bread, cigar box. Opulent.

  • Taste:

    Rich on the palate. Syrupy texture, opulent once more. A bit of ethanol here, though the proof is slightly higher than Chapter 1. Black currant, date fruit, cocoa and rich nougat. Powerful.

  • Finish:

    Long finish, the heat presents itself here once more, more fiery than the first. The flavor is dialed up, very sherry forward but enjoyable all the same.

  • Overall:

    A bit less of a well painted portrait here on this release, the introduction of the Apera sherry tips the scales in sweetness' favor here. A very good release no less, and a strong invitation to try the others.

  • Score:

    6
