A single cask expression of heavily peated whisky from New South Wales’s Black Gate distillery, cask BG067 arrives at cask strength and with plenty of attitude.

Distilled used peated malt from Scotland, this has been matured in an ex-port cask and bottled at 66.5%. Distilled April 2017, it was bottled May 2019. 148 bottles from this cask.

Black Gate have been known for a thick, oily spirit that builds treacle and golden syrup notes in sherry and port casks. In 2016 they moved towards exclusively distilling peated stock.

These releases are proving to be a rare example of an Aussie whisky that has held a considerable amount of smoke and this is no difference, particularly on the back palate.

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.
