Four Gate Rye Downunder Finished in Australian Apera Sherry Casks (Batch 16), 55.1%

Price: $200 Issue: Fall 2022 Reviewer: David Fleming

Earthy scents of grain and old leather against lighter fruit notes of grape and dried figs. The palate is well-balanced, with an impressive mix of fruit and spice, plus dark chocolate and caramel. The mouthfeel is jammy, creamy, rich, and extremely pleasant overall. The finish offers great length and lots of spice at the back end. The spiciness of rye meets flavorful fruit and chocolate—an excellent one. (2,168 bottles)
