Hellyers Road - Henry's Legacy No. 08 Release - Levens Gateway 500mL
- In stock, ready to ship
- Inventory on the way
After huge acclaim from the World Whisky Awards this year that saw the Freestone Cove release be voted Australia's best Single Cask Whisky, comes the exciting new chapter in this legacy.
We are thrilled to introduce to you our latest Legacy Release - Leven's Gateway.
When Henry Hellyer and his team explored the deep and rugged river valley of the dramatic Leven canyon, little did he know that nearly 140 years later, it would give rise to a stunning single malt whisky. The new release of the Leven’s Gateway single malt whisky honours the very beauty of the canyon’s landscape. The rich mahogany tone of the whisky mimics the rock formation in the river below and contrasts with the limestone, green tree covered cliff-face. The full-bodied flavour embodies the sight to behold. Hand bottled, wax sealed and certificated, this limited edition single malt whisky embodies the true spirit of our distillery - carefully crafted by hand.
For single malt devotees, this superb release continues the legacy of impeccably crafted artisan whisky. Matured in the most premium of highly sought after Spanish Oloroso casks, this is not just a classic addition to any discerning single malt collection, but a whisky of distinction that we feel sets a new benchmark for the distillery. The balance and mouthfeel offer the palate so much reward - deft and delicate, yet intense and memorable. Lovers and collectors alike of it's predecessor - Freestone Cove - will be enamoured by its elegance.
This series of single cask releases are unique expressions from the Bond Store. They are single casks projects that explore the diversity within our craft to produce distinctive and unrepeated single malt whisky style. Truly unique in the landscape of Tasmanian whisky releases.

Tasting Note -
Hints of golden syrup and cinnamon play chaperone to the palate, which is immediately ensconced in warm spices, raisins, dried plums and caramelised pear. Clover honey and smouldering ember notes accompany a lingering warm finish. A whisky that declares "Watch this space!".
