Black Gate Shiraz Single Cask BG114 Rum

$88 Members Only Price

Black Gate Shiraz Single Cask BG114 Rum is is probably one of the most intriguing Aussie rum releases to date and is the 1st ever Shiraz cask expression from the distillery. Distilled in November 2018, this rich dark rum has spent its entire life in a Huntington Estate Special Reserve 2007 Shiraz cask maturing to perfection at the Black Gate Distillery in historic central western NSW.

Being a single cask, this limited release consists of a total of 360 bottles available exclusively via The Rum Club Australia. In the words of Black Gate’s rum Master Distillery, Genise Hollingworth — this probably one of our best rums yet!

Tasting Notes: Nose of butter croissant, dates, with hints of Christmas spices and dried stone fruit. The palate is surprisingly buttery and warming with a nice lingering spice with gentle oak undertones. Complex and flavourful yet not overpowering at a perfect 48% ABV. It’s a well balanced sipping rum that’s enjoyable neat as well as with a few drops of water, an ice cube or with your favourite mixer (we recommend Ginger Beer or Dry).
