A three-year-old single sherry cask from the Black Gate distillery in New South Wales’ Central West.

Cask BG030 was distilled in June and 2015 and bottled October 2018, quite a long maturation for the intense climate out west – particularly as this barrel saw three summers.

An ex-sherry cask, this is one of the rare expressions where the distillery ran their malt through a wool press (these days their peated malt is brought in from Scotland).

Quite a gutsy release and, distiller Brian Hollingworth says, “It's got a nose on it like Gonzo and a finish as long as your arm.”

Located in Mendooran, not far from Dubbo in New South Wales' Greater West, Black Gate have earned themselves cult status amongst drinkers with their single malt and rum expressions.

The small town of about 300 people has a unique climate for whisky and wide temperature variations ensure lots of interaction between the whisky and the cask.

 

That intensity is matched by Black Gate's heavy spirits which is achieved by late spirits cuts. The inspiration comes from Brian and Genise Hollingworth's penchant for big, smoky Scottish whiskies and Black Gate's releases often find themselves on the heavier side of the Australian whisky spectrum.
