Having tasted a few Australian whiskies recently, we expected something quite muted and oaky. However, this one is truly surprised.
- Brand: Hellyers Road
- Type: Whiskey, single malt
- Region: Tasmania
- RRP: Approx. $90.00 for 700mL
Its nose is fairly sedate and floral, but on the first taste you get fullbodied fruit with a very pleasant end note of vanilla and perhaps caramel or butterscotch. But what was that fruity note? After another two drams, there it was: apple! Rather fitting, considering its origin on the apple isle.
Thoroughly enjoyable, and a real example of an Aussie whisky that can compete on the international stage.
