A Golden Elixir Made for Explorers.

For 160 years, Australia couldn’t make Whisky by law. Then, in 1992, the powers that be decided their country should be fun again, and since then, twenty distilleries popped up – half of them in Tasmania, the Land Under the Land Down Under. On the north, there’s the Hellyers Road distillery, named after Henry Hellyer, who surveyed Tasmania and looking at his last name, no wonder there are devils on the island. It was established in 1997 by a dairy company and since then, the distillery became one of the largest in Australia, making a range of fine spirits. While they produce Whiskies that are a loving combination of port and peat, this bottle holds a decade old Single Malt. It was aged in Bourbon casks, made with premium Tasmanian grain, brought to life by the cleanest water and the purest air.

This pale gold potion has an aroma of vanilla and a medium-sweet palate of crowd-pleasing notes of creamy maple spice and a hint of the Bourbon character. While it’s not a mistake mixing it in cocktails, this one is best consumed neat and if possible, poured a few hours before. We can’t promise you’ll see a Tasmanian Devil, but we’ll bet you’ll love it.

Interesting.

Kathryn,
Incredibly strong spicy nose that doesn’t relent. No balance.

Smoky. Wish they would make more scotch in the future

This tastes terrible
 
Kevin
Kevin,
Very nice. Good, sweet maple spice flavor with a nice maple syrup finish. I want this for breakfast!
 
Antti
Antti,
It is an outstanding, rich, Australian Single Malt Whisky with a sweet birth, while an easy & creamy life, leads to a spicy death of medium length.
 
Troy
Troy,
Just really was not happy with this. Rough all around.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Fruity nose but very harsh spice. Almost a hint of coffee. Probably get the same flavor with some turpentine and espresso. Seems like the Australians got the distillation part figured out but the math mash and maturation seem to be misunderstood.
 
Corey
Corey,
Best drunk while drunk I’d imagine. I kinda pick up some maple caramel, but it’s beat by the rubber taste that lingers in the aftertaste.
 
Sonali
Sonali,
The smell of pears is so strong, it's hard to make out any of the other aromatics; however, husband and I both agree there's a sweet marshmallow-like aroma as well. I can't taste much due to mainly tasting alcohol, but there are flavors of honey and spice. Husband says it tastes dinstinctly of circus peanuts (aka artificial banana).
 
John
John,
Tastes like fermented bran flakes. Hard pass.
 
Gabriel
Gabriel,
Not the best straight up as a sipper, had an off-putting flavor to it. Seems like it needed to mature for a bit longer. I had some with a plate of charcuterie and it went well with that, but will be passing on this juice, don’t see myself getting a bottle at any point.
 
Doug
Doug,
This one is very "cereal-forward" in that I smell and taste the malted barley nearly immediately and in a big way throughout. This one is unique in my somewhat limited experience and I can definitely see why many people are not fans: the flavors are unexpected in a whisky. I may not buy it again, but it is definitely one to try and share if you want to bring something very different to the table.
 
Deja
Deja,
That's gonna be a no for me, dawg...
 
Katherine
Katherine,
Interesting. Spicy, sweet, and smokey. Would be excellent with food, I'm thinking a dish with a tomato sauce, or maybe a spicy Cajun pasta
 
Anthony
Anthony,
Nose: Fresh fruit, cereal, vanilla, and a bit of coconut. Palate: Creamy and malty, with a medicinal palate, but not unpleasant. This is a taste, mmm, taste again, hmmm, taste again. It keeps bringing you back. Finish: Short to medium finish. A little spice and citrus on the finish. Overall interesting dram, maybe not one I would buy, but glad I tasted.
 
Logan
Logan,
I got a lot of smoke and sweet. Not particularly balanced well. Not for my taste.

Karlo,
Just not for me...
