The Peated, was Hellyers Road Distillery's first peated expression release.
Aged in American Oak (ex-bourbon) and distilled using peated grain sourced from Inverness – Scotland, this single malt was recognised as the Australia's Best Peated Whisky (Malt Whisky Society of Australia Awards for Excellence in 2010). This peated single malt expression has a distinctive style all of its own. Peaty characters play on the palate more gingerly than its Scottish peated counterparts. With more restraint, this expression represents the best of new world peated whisky interpretations. True Scotch lovers will be in awe of this delightfully surprising Tasmanian crafted drop. Presented in a stunning canister.
FIRST RELEASE: 2010
Tasting Note -
Hints of seared fern smokiness greets the nose with typical nuances of citrus, lemon and orange presenting through the haze. The palate is further complimented by a citrus sweetness with overtones of malt presenting. A lingering aftertaste conjures fresh forest regeneration with layers of youthful pine smoke and pepper omnipresent.
Hellyers Road Single Malt Whisky Peated - "... stunningly rich delivery with just about perfect weight and oiliness; soft heather honey makes for a superb mid point; f22 the honey sticks around – literally – and now we go into smoky milk chocolate mode; b23 Hellyers offers a unique character in its own right. Put some pretty full-on peat into the mix and you are left with one of the most idiosyncratic whiskies in the world. And a sheer, if at times perplexing, delight…! 46.2%."
