Delicious, wind-battered Tasmanian offering.

Hellyers Road was established in 1999 by a group of dairy farmers who decided to swap milk for Single Malt. They named the distillery in the small port city of Burnie on the northeast coast of Tasmania after Henry Hellyer, one of the first Western explorers to survey and map the island. Hellyers Road was called the nation’s best Single Malt produced in 2010, and in 2013, the judges at the Whisky Live Fair in Paris voted their Pinot Noir Finish ‘Best New World Whisky.’

Hellyers Road Original ‘Roaring Forty’ is a lovely entry expression that was matured in ex-Bourbon casks. The name comes from the coastal winds that blow at 40 km/h and bring in the rainwater needed for Whisky production. Smooth, warm, and a bit exotic.

Appearance / Color
Pale gold

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The creamy nose of vanilla and lemon are reminiscent of meringue cookies, while hints of toffee and banana make it more complex and alluring. Leave it open a bit for hints of oak and nutmeg.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
At first, the Whisky offers a mellow and fresh grassy palate. Then, it opens to juicy and sweet notes of vanilla, toffee, honey, plum, and pear.

Finish
Short but lovely finish with notes of cedar and peanut.

The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan and major rivals are Nikka and Suntory.  
Is it spelled Whisky or Whiskey? Maybe you've noticed it before, but let’s just take a wee moment to help you keep your Es in order with this simple rule: There is an E in the word Ireland, so there is also an E in their Whiskey. The rule also holds true for United States, so while there is no E in Scotland, Japan and Canada the same goes for their Whisky. All clear? Good.
In the U.S., Irish Whiskey sales have jumped by over 500% since 2002. It’s the fastest growing category in the Spirits industry. There’s some news to raise your glass to.
