Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : jaune doré soutenu.
  • Nose : original, frais. Le premier nez révèle avec une rare intensité la chair des fruits mûrs (reine-claude, orange, quetsche). Plutôt sombre, il évolue sur des notes herbacées (luzerne). Une touche aquatique (cresson, algue) le fait bifurquer vers d’autres horizons parsemés de fruits confits (citron, pomme). Une note de gomme arabique ponctue la palette aromatique.
  • Palate : gourmande, pulpeuse. Mélange de réglisse noire, de toffee et d’ananas rôti, son attaque est tout aussi originale que le premier nez. Le milieu de bouche est fibreux (bâton de réglisse, racine de gentiane). De jolis amers onctueux la font revenir à ses origines, l’orge maltée. Au fur et à mesure, elle devient médicinale (baume) et camphrée.
  • Overall : longue, soyeuse. Avec précision, elle met en exergue un fruit : l’abricot. Qu’il soit confit, confituré ou bien juteux, celui-ci occupe très nettement le devant de la scène. À tel point que la toute fin de bouche évoque la tarte à l’abricot de nos grand-mères. La rétro-olfaction est maltée et torréfiée (café, caramel) et le verre vide délicieusement poudré (cacao).
The brand

The brand

Still bottled at 46.2%, without chill-filtering or the addition of caramel, the single malt from the Hellyers Road distillery is a genuine product of the terroir. Unlike many other whiskies, its mashing, distillation and bottling are all carried out on site and the majority of its malt is produced in the region. Distilled for the first time in 1999, the whisky owes it character, not just to the richness of the land from which it is produced, but also to a cool climate that favours long maturation, to its skilful cask ageing techniques and to the diversity of the range it produces, which includes peated and unpeated bottlings, as well as classic maturations and special finishes.

The distillery

The largest micro-distillery in Australia (producing 100,000 litres per year), Hellyers Road was founded in 1997. Located on the island of Tasmania, which is known more for its wines, salmon and lush green landscapes, the distillery owes its existence to a passion for whisky shared by the owner of a milk cooperative and a professional distiller: together they decided to create a new “milk”, which was malted and in a rather more Scottish style! Distilled for the first time in 1999, the quality of the whisky was quickly appreciated by connoisseurs, and is now one of the islands best exports, and among Australia’s most well-known whiskies.
