Where Blood Oath Pact No. 6 with its Cognac finish wasn’t as intense as it needed to be, Four Gate Batch 6 goes to the other extreme. It’s packed full of great flavor, but its heat gets in the way. Thankfully a few drops of water alleviates this and allows the whiskey to open up. The result is a great tasting finished bourbon that needs just a little help to truly shine.
