A single cask, port cask matured rum from the Black Gate distillery in country New South Wales.

Cask BG026 was an ex-port cask, which was bottled in July 2018 and released as part of their overproof 51% range.

This has been distilled from fermented refinery molasses and then double distilled through the distillery’s direct fired copper pot still.

The port cask has blessed this release with big toffee notes, a hint of spice and the classic Black Gate caramels. It’s a similar profile to their BG027 release, which was bottled a few months earlier.

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.
