Hellyers Road Peated Single Malt
Peated Single Malt
Hellyers Road // Tasmania, Australia
This Tasmanian Whisky decided to shake things up a bit; instead of using Tasmanian barley and peat, peated Scottish barley was brought from the homeland itself, with the distilling and maturation achieved at the Burnie distillery. Matured for 8 years in an ex-bourbon barrel, this Tasmanian Whisky has previously won the Australian Whisky Society's award for Excellence. Hellyers is available in many European countries in addition to Australia. This is currently not available in the US.
Peated Single Malt100% malted barley from a single distillery. Dried with peat.
"The signature presence of Islay peat is hard to ignore, heavy on the nose at the forefront there. It gives way, however, to smoke mixed with green apples, vanilla, and honey in the middle, breaking through to salt and cinnamon in the rear. The taste is still initially that of the fabled Isle with a heavy peat reminiscent of Laphroaig, slowly moving down to smoke, salt and spice. A brilliant tribute to Islay whiskies. "
