$150. 00
$1800.00 Dozen
ABV: 60.1%

The second instalment under Hellyers Road's annual single cask series, 'Henry's Legacy'.

Documented by famous English explorer Henry Hellyer, 'Saint Valentine Peak' (located south of Burnie) was ventured and named circa 1827.   This edition was bottled at 60.1% ABV, matured for 11 years in an undisclosed cask type, complete with instructions on how to redeem your signed/numbered certificate of authenticity.  Cask No. 4295.02.  480 bottles produced.

Tasting note: Polished copper. Powerful bouquet is infused with vanilla and spicy fruit mince pie-like qualities. Creamy entry leads into an intense, tongue nipping attack with bittersweet flavours of Indian chutney, kumquat jam, then flashes of dates and vanilla. Finish is hot, peppery and dry with a mildly metallic mouthfeel and an unusual vegetative note (boiled parsnip? Lucerne mulch? Pickled onion?) Rebounds with late sweetness in the fade. 60.1% Alc.Vol.
