This peated single malt is amongst the oldest of its kind available from an Australian distillery. It has been carefully crafted using high-quality grain and some of the world’s purest drinking water to deliver a peated whisky that will delight those who like their spirit embodied with a touch of smokiness. Remnants of a fading campfire are conjured as typical hints of citrus, lemon and orange present through the haze. The palate becomes immersed in a vanilla sweetness with overtones of malt presenting. A lingering aftertaste conjures fresh forest regeneration with layers of smoke and pepper omnipresent.
In 1825, Henry Hellyer was one of the first European explorers to set foot in the rugged interior of North West Tasmania as chief surveyor of the Van Dieman's Land Company, carving a dirt road into the rugged wilderness with the most basic of tools. Almost 200 years later, his road now guides the way to the Hellyers Road Distillery in the town of Burnie. The Distillery’s casks are imported American Oak barrels that were previously the domicile of American whisky, providing a tried and true means of maturation appreciated by whisky connoisseurs around the globe.
