Hellyers Road is somewhat a story of Australian adventure. When the distillery began in 1997, distiller Mark Littler was a complete stranger to the whole process, however his time spent in the dairy industry gave him the knowledge that could be applied field-to-field. Using Inverness peated malt, the distillery produces some of Australia's finest peated whiskies, with the Slightly Peated being a welcome addition to Hellyers Roads increasingly impressive line-up.

Tasting Notes

"Floral smoke begins this dram with mingling, delicate peat residing in the back, letting the delicate nuts and vanilla come through with honey sultanas and a leather twist, the whole adventure being rich and fulfilling. On the tongue the peat is doughy, and moves towards toasted malts before arriving at small orchid fruit, fragrant roses, and a cinnamon dusting. The finish is long and fulfilling, pleasantly glazed with hay, leather smoke and salty peat. "
