Dram Review: Hellyers Road Port Cask Matured Single Cask Release Aged 11 Years (Cask No. 4295/03)

[62.2%・11 Years Old・Bottled in 2018・Official Bottling・Cask No. 4295/03・Single Cask Release]


A fat Port cask driven note from the get go.  Still quite spirit heavy with a buttery toffee base with a slight clay note.  Overall, the Port wood fragrance is quite pleasant.

Palate & Finish:

Sweet prunes on the palate but incredibly spicy, the Port influence can’t prevent the spirit hotness from causing a scene, followed later on by blueberry syrup, milk chocolate and hint of menthol.

The burn gradually subsides in the finish to release more blueberry syrup and malt.


Hot and spicy without restraint, not one for the faint-hearted I am afraid..
