Single Malt Whisky, Australia / Tasmanie, 70cl, Ref: 53537

Our experts reviews

Issue de l’assemblage de 8 petits fûts de 100 litres, cet Hellyer’s Road procure énormément d’émotions tant sur le plan olfactif que gustatif. Original, véritable friandise, il virevolte littéralement entre la tourbe, l’orge maltée, les fruits, le chocolat et de délicieuses séquences herbacées pleines de fraîcheur. Avec en prime, une très agréable surprise en toute fin de bouche. De plus, il possède une qualité rare : une liberté de ton à l’enthousiasme inébranlable.

A blend of 8 small 100-litre casks containing the oldest Hellyers Road Slightly Peated produced by the distillery - this very small batch is particularly fond of a change in scenery. Might it be due to its considerable angel’s share (6-7% per year)? The fact remains that, to better illustrate its point, it invites us to discover an aromatic and gustatory palette in which peat and malted barley engage in a long-distance Homeric dual, interspersed with truly original herbaceous, chocolate and fruity sequences.

Profile: the unctuous nose reveals a liquorice peat accompanied by candied (Mirabelle plum) and exotic (mango) fruit. Allowed to breathe, the peat becomes deeper and more intense. The attack sees the peat become drier (ash, tobacco), gradually making space for the malted barley. The finish is balanced and original (cucumber).

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : deep gold.
  • Nose : round, unctuous. First, a delicate liquorice and oily peat pierces through notes of William’s pear, very ripe mango and Mirabelle plum jam. Allowed to breathe, the peat becomes more intense, deeper, and chocolatey. For their part, the fruits give way to a more herbaceous (lichen, walnut husk) and slightly camphoric register.
  • Palate : firm, powerful. Radically different from the nose, the attack offers much drier, almost ashy peat (twig). The mid-palate is then intensely malty. Gradually, the white fruit from the nose resurfaces, giving the end of the palate a pleasant, invigorating freshness.
  • Overall : long, silky. Now the peat and malted barley appear together in perfect harmony. Nonetheless, notes of ash and lit tobacco underscore the upper hand taken by its phenolic character, without allowing it to crush the end of the palate. A very original note of cucumber then arrives on the taste buds. Without changing a bit, the empty glass precisely reconstructs the initial nose.
The brand

The brand

Hellyers Road a été fondée en 1997 sur l'île verdoyante de Tasmanie. La distillerie doit son existence à la passion commune pour le whisky entre le propriétaire d'une coopérative laitière et un distillateur professionnel. Ensemble ils décident de créer un nouveau lait, celui-ci est malté ! Le nom de la distillerie rend hommage à son tout premier explorateur, Henry Hellyer, qui fut le premier Européen à fouler les terres de ce territoire sauvage. De la détermination de cet homme est née la toute première route construite à travers la brousse - celle même qui relie actuellement la distillerie. Sans nul doute, les whiskies exceptionnels d’Hellyers Road ont hérité de la persévérance de son tout premier pionnier ! Distillé pour la première fois en 1999, le whisky doit son caractère à une parfaite maîtrise de la maturation en fûts.

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.
