Oak Barrel thoughts:
More earth and spice than the bright port cask, this is deeper and maybe a touch more alluring. Ground spices, dark fruits, old books. Palate is more of the same, fruits a bit riper. Shows a toch of warmth, sweetness lingers on the palate.
Black Gate is located in Mendooran in country New South Wales, between Dubbo and Coonabarabran. It is run by husband-and-wife team Brian and Genise Hollingworth, with Genise controlling the rum distillation.
