Dram Review: Hellyers Road Peated

[46.2%・NAS・Bottled Circa 2014-2018・Official Bottling・General Release]

Nose:

Iodine, and a singular sooty peat smoke. Squid ink and burnt plastic. Hints of zingy green kiwis and rice paper still lurk in the background.

Palate & Finish:

Light vanilla sweetness with a bit of kiwi citrus and fresh garden herbs followed by a solid pasting of peat providing steady follow through alongside smoke and golden honey.

The somewhat dirty smoke continue to hang in the finish, a tad on the woody side with a hint of whisky tablet sweetness.

Thoughts:

Certainly nothing to frown upon as a peated youngling.. quite close to scoring a tick..
