With 1,484 bottles released in total, this is the first straight rye and unfinished rye released by Four Gate. The company has plans to release two different finishes of the same whiskey within the next 12 months. A high rye likely distilled at MGP, it brings forth a lively flavor profile highlighted by citrus and black pepper notes. While a good whiskey in-and-of-itself, this will provide an interesting base for further finishing.
