Tasting Notes

"A sweet vanilla moves through into a slightly charred tones, smoke running through with notes of cereal and small, isolated spices. Oily on the tongue, malt biscuit now comes to the forefront, but dodging behind it is the wood smoke that is this whisky’s hidden strength. Sweet nuts and spices give way to citrus and slightly burnt toast on a long, satisfying finish. This age variant is possibly the strongest in flavor of those Hellyers produces, being old enough to know what's on its mind, yet young enough to not get settled in its ways."
