Black Gate’s Port Cask expression is luscious variant in the single malt range. Distilled to perfection and matured in ex-sherry casks, the Port Cask selection has an alluring amber gold finish, with enticing scents of vanilla and wafer biscuit, coupled with caramel and mocha in the beginning. This is gradually overpowered by the warm spices with a precise balance of honey cough drops, vanilla and cocoa which gives the whisky its well-balanced palate. Everyone is sure to enjoy this joyous mix of flavors, making it perfect for every occasion.
Black Gate was established in 2009 in Central West of New South Wales, Australia. Since the building of its first distillery, Black Gate has won over the hearts of whisky lovers and has received global acclaim for the premium expressions it produces including being selected for NOMA Australia and being featured in Luke McCarthy’s book ‘The Australian Spirits Guide’.
