Dram Review: Hellyers Road Original Single Cask Release Aged 14 Years (Cask No. 2087/08)

[67.4%・14 Years Old・Bottled in 2018・Official Bottling・Cask No. 2087/08・Single Cask Release]

Nose:

Honey and cereal and of course rather alcoholic, metallic with barley husk, quite unrefined and raw.

Palate & Finish:

Sweet oily honey with a very naked showing of the barley infused with wood.  Faring quite green with some olive oil and more spirit-y spices in the mix.

That greenness continues in the finish, and lead to this burnt toast aftertaste.

Thoughts:

This is 14 years old, which is old by Australian standard but it certainly feels like this could really use even more maturation time..
