Four Gate Batch 18 "Saint Charente"  - 7 Year Cognac Finish

Four Gate Batch 18 "Saint Charente" - 7 Year Cognac Finish

$210.00

Four Gate Whiskey Company has announced its latest release of barrel Finished craft American whiskey: "Saint Charente."

Saint Charente is a 7 Year Kentucky Straight Bourbon finished in cognac casks.

Cognac is a varietal of Brandy produced in and around the region of France known as Cognac. It is made from distilled grapes, usually white, and aged in French Oak casks much in the same way whiskey is aged.

The underlying bourbon was distilled and aged in Kentucky from a mash bill of 75% Corn, 21% Rye, and 4% malted Barley.

I absolutely love the nose on this batch," said Chief Blending Officer, Bill Straub. "It has tons of orchard fruits from those cognac casks and the French oak gave it some great baking spice notes as well. It's like apple pie.'

The Batch is named for the River Charente that flows through the Cognac region of France.

"All the little towns in that area are called 'Saint' this or that," said Chief Barrel Officer, Bob D'Antoni. "We added the Saint in front of Charente in homage of that."

Shortbarrel Mezcal Finished Whiskey

Shortbarrel Mezcal Finished Whiskey

$59.99

What happens when a mezcal barrel meets a 5 ½-year-old Kentucky American Whiskey for 8 months … The result - a perfectly balanced blend of Kentucky and Oaxaca flavors that highlights the dark, rich oak of aged whiskey and the bright vanilla and citrus notes of mezcal - with just the right amount of smoke. Bottled at 111 proof, El Jefe balances strong, smooth, and sweet.

Shortbarrel is proud to bring to life this unique blend of flavors that pushes the boundaries of finished whiskey. Consisting of only 4 barrels, this super small batch American Whiskey is a blend of 5 ½-year-old Kentucky Straight American Whiskey (91% corn, 9% malted barley) finished for 8 months in ex-reposado mezcal barrels.

Tasting Notes

Aroma: Sweet American Whiskey upfront with a gentle hint of smokey mezcal (almost woody) on the first nose. Slight notes of vanilla, charred orange, pepper, sweet corn, and herbal background. 

Mouth: Orange’s, smooth creamy vanilla, honey, cinnamon spice, very bright citrus keeps going and going. This is 111 proof after all. Even with the proof, this offer’s up a buttery-like taste because of the 91% corn in the mashbill. The smokey flavor is there but not overpowering. The smoke shows up more with an ice cube in the glass which also enhances the normally known mezcal finish you would expect.

Finish: The extra time in the barrel helped here and so does the proof. This is one of those finishes that will make you want to grab a second/third glass as you try to figure out the nose and mouthfeel on this. The finish is long as you would expect from a 111 proof whiskey but it’s not a punch in the chest. This finish whiskey is creamy, almost buttery at times, the mezcal impact becomes increasingly evident as the warming finish develops, adding nuance to a palate that finds room for all the tasting notes.

Final notes: This mezcal finish was made to be drunk neat, with a cube or in a cocktail. We highly recommend adding a small ice cube or a drop of water to this whiskey to really let the finish shine. At this proof, mixologists should have a great time coming up with new and exciting recipes. Salud! to high standards and great friends. Shortbarrel hopes you enjoy this whiskey as much as we did experimenting with it.
