More whiskies in the league
Hellyers Road 12 Year Old 2004
Australian single malt here from Hellyers Road, bottled for La Maison du Whisky as part of their Cellar Books series. This is a "Slightly Peated" expression, matured for 12 years in 100 litre casks. Very, very cool indeed.
Hellyers Road 10 Year Old Original
A 10 year old Tassie single malt, produced at the excellent Hellyers Road distillery. This expression spends a decade slumbering in American oak bourbon casks, developing oodles of yummy vanilla-y notes alongside touches of cooked fruit and soft baking spices.
Hellyers Road Pinot Noir Cask Finish
The Pinot Noir finish of the Hellyers Road varieties is matured in American White Oak casks first (see Hellyers Road Original Whisky), then finished for six months in Pinot Noir French Oak casks from Tamar Ridge, Tasmania. A delightful blend of two of Tasmania's greatest talents, it is marvelous to wonder what we may see produced here in the future. Hellyers is available in many European countries in addition to Australia. This is not currently available in the US.
Hellyers Road Slightly Peated
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.

Yamazaki 18 Year Old Japanese Single Malt Whisky
The Yamazaki 18 Year Old Single Malt is a Japanese whisky from Suntory, the largest alcoholic beverage makers of Japan. It was first released in 1992, and has been one of the best releases from the Osaka based Yamazaki Distillery. The 18 Year Old is a part of the Yamazaki core range from Suntory, which includes three other expressions – a no-age-statement single malt, a 12 Year Old and the 25 Year Old. Yamazaki Distillery was the first ever whisky distillery established in Japan, and holds a special place in the Japanese whisky industry. History of Yamazaki Single Malt Whisky Suntory founder Shinjiro Torii began the company in 1899 as a small store dealing in wines and other alcoholic beverages. His store was located in Osaka, Japan and garnered much prosperity for Torii. This led to him creating his own brand of fortified wine, the Akadama Port Wine. Torii chose the name Kotobukiya Company for his company, and wished to establish a whisky distillery in Japan. He sought the help of Masataka Taketsuru, a Japanese chemist with experience of whisky distillation. Torii employed Taketsuru at the Kotobukiya Company to help him build the Yamazaki Distillery in 1923. Distillation at Yamazaki began in 1924, and five years later, the Suntory Shirofuda (White Label) was launched. It was the first ever whisky distilled, matured and bottled in Japan. Taketsuru left the Kotobukiya Company after a decade, establishing the Nikka Whisky brand. Torii took the Kotobukiya Company to new heights, launching a few other types of whisky. Marketing played a key role in raising the popularity of Torii’s whisky products in Japan. The name Suntory was chosen to replace Kotobukiya Company in 1963, taking inspiration from the company’s first ever whisky brand. After Torii passed away, his son and successor, Keizo Saji built the Chita Grain Whisky Distillery in 1972, and the Hakushu Malt Whisky Distillery in 1973. This would enable Suntory to produce more single malt expressions, and even their own blends. The Yamazaki single malts became accompanied by single malts from Hakushu, and the Hibiki range of blended Japanese whiskies. Thus the Suntory range of Japanese whiskies was diversified, eventually adding the Chita Single Grain whisky and Toki blended whisky to the range.
Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Bourbon Whiskey
The Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch is a no age statement, bottled-in-bond, straight Kentucky Bourbon whiskey from the Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky. The Small Batch bourbon was first launched in 2013 and is named after Col. Edmund Haynes Taylor Jr., a firm supporter of the Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897. Even though there are no set guidelines or any fixed definition, a small batch bourbon is any bourbon that has been created by blending a relatively small number of barrels to achieve the flavour profile. A bottled-in-bond whiskey is distilled only once at one distillery in one season. Bottled-in-bond whiskeys also have to be aged for a minimum of four years. The Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897 was passed to guarantee customers of the authenticity of the whiskey and protect them from counterfeit products.
