Hellyers Road Peated

Single malt z Tasmanii […]

Today I decided to reach for purchase that some time ago I made in Australia. Yes, yes ... by the way of posts about Lark (Lark Whisky, Lark Bar) or Nant, I mentioned that on that continent, single malt whisky is also made. Their greatest concentration is in Tasmania and also Hellyers Road Peated comes from there. I remember that, in general stores eg. in Sydney were not full of single malts. Rather, I would say that I met them quite rare. At this bottle I came across by chance, in the shopping center and it was available in one piece only. I dont have too much information about it. It is of course single malt, NAS (no age statement), 46.2% ABV. Local barley were used for production. I do not know if it unchillfiltered or coloured, although the color is bright, straw, so it may be natural. [caption id=attachment_3704 align=alignnone width=801] Hellyers Road Peated[/caption] The distillery name comes from the Henry Hellyer, who was one of the first Europeans inhabiting the north western reaches of Tasmania and participated in the construction of the road to the interior of the island - Hellyers Road. When I hold the bottle in my hand at once I have a reminiscent of my vacation. I wonder if whisky tastes as nicely?

    Tasmania and Hobart are special places in Australian Whisky World.

    As I wrote before in Lark Distillery Whisky Bar, finding in Australia places specially dedicated to whisky is not easy. But it does not concern to Tasmania, especially its capital Hobart. In the city hotels provide Australian (Tasmanian) whisky and even there are at least two bars worth a visit, just as described earlier Lark Distillery Whisky Bar and Nant Whisky Bar. [caption id=attachment_666 align=alignnone width=801] Nant Whisky Bar[/caption] Hobart is not a very big town, and...

    A few days ago I visited Lark Distillery Whisky Bar located in the distillery’s home town Hobart, Tasmania.

    [caption id=attachment_528 align=alignleft width=250] Lark Distillery[/caption] Generally in Australia single malt whisky culure is not particularly widespreaded, in some sense in terms of the availability of whisky it is similar to Poland. Most bars or hotels offer ubiquitous Glenfiddich 12 yo and Johnny Walker Black Label. Bottle Shops offer a number of Scottish malts, including Laphroaig, Lagavulin or Talisker. However, Australia is a wine country in all its forms. Actually wine...
