Whisky Reviews for Hellyers Road Original

  1. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur


    Though there is also an ‘Original’ 10 & a 12yo, reliable internet info would suggest this NAS version is around 6yo.

    N: Strange fruity plastic-clingfilm, plasticine/fimo and food-wrapped plastic, but mainly its silicone. Doesn’t improve too much but there is a little vanilla & banana showing over time.
    T: Curious fruits, then soapy/spirity before bitter grapefruit. Later theres a firm puttiness and a touch of vanilla with some mouthfeel. A strange plastic/oiliness resides.
    F: Not a great deal, mainly a slight cocoa spirit with time & water.
    C: Not convincing.No score

    DAY 2

    N: Somewhat better today, but we continue clutching at straws. Still there remains that funny/weird/different fruity putty profile – so we are talking of a heavy porridgy spirit, moderately sugary. Serge’s beer & papaya notes are once again, spot on.
    T: Plastic-y/plasticine arrival with a fairly persistent spirity/soapy-shampoo note at the heart, though eventually with a light-sweet honeyed barley thread. Some water brings plastic-y-candied sweeties, albeit rather chemical.
    F: Medium-short finish on fruity-light honeyed-barley with that lingering soapy-shampoo note. More recognisably a rounded whisky towards the end that settles with sweetish vanilla, Feast bar and banana.
    C: Today theres some promise in the finish, but still no score.
