Nose: Orange peel and coconut ice. A subtle waft of mineral-rich smoke.
Palate: Gingerbread, vanilla-y malt, apricot toasted sugar and peppermint.
Finish: Very slightly coastal, but still rich in orchard fruit.
The Hellyers Road distillery in Tasmania creates this expression by blending its Original (unpeated) single malt with a small portion of its Peated single malt - hence Slightly Peated. As you would expect from that name, this whisky offers up a subtle suggestion of smoke, with plenty of barley-rich notes to keep the peat from getting out of hand.
