This triple distilled, almost Lowland-style variation of a Springbank malt claims to be unpeated. On the nose, there are orange zest, unripe apples and unexpected incense smoke. Hints of chocolate, dried fruits and marzipan indicate sherry cask influence. Arriving spicy and gingery, Hazelburn 12 tastes delicate and nutty with notes of roasted almonds, orange marmalade and coconuts. Traces of peat? Most definitely! The finish is of medium length, aromatic and oak-dominated. Altogether, an interesting but quite expensive Campbeltown Single Malt.

Color
Gin clear
Nose

Licht rook, krijg er niet echt hoogte van. Beetje medicinaal, gras tonen. Niet bloemig of zoet. Niet onaangenaam

Taste

Hetzelfde als finish

Finish

Aangenaam soepel, mooie ontwikkeling. Paar drupjes water wordt hij opener, niet complexer. Niet echt op vooruitgegaan maar wel opener.

Nose

Mineral/metallic, malt, honey, fruit, popcorn, and citrus rind.

Taste

Luscious sweet and fruity attack.  Thick, syrupy honey.  Then the mineral returns.  It does not take water well.

Finish

Earthy, cereal crackers.  Possibly some sherry cask?  Milk chocolate.  With water, prickly oak spice and bitterness.

Comments

It's all in the nose and development.  Spirit-driven.  Classic Springbank style, austere and challenging in that old-fashioned kind of way.  It does very well with time in the glass, and something of a chameleon from night to night.  A winner!

Nose

hui, der kribbelt in der Nase, aber kein Alkohol, sondern Zitrone und Salz, da komm ich an nix anderes ran... +Tropfen Wasser: Orangen- und Aprikosenmarmelade, Nuss-Nougat-Creme, Marzipan, ein Hauch Leder/Erde im Hintergrund

Taste

cremig und süß (auch ohne Wasser), Orangenmarmelade, Nougat, Milchschokolade... bleibt er länger im Mund, auch etwas Pfeffer und (!) Weingummi - klingt komisch, ist aber so

Finish

mittellang, auch hier hab ich nochmal diese Weingumminote, Nougat, sanfte Schärfe und eine ziemlich eigenwillige würzige Note, was aromatisches, so zwischen gemahlenem Kümmel, Fenchel und Pfefferminze

Comments

Da kommt nachher noch der Rest vom Sample ins Glas, der ist lecker und schön eigenwillig, 55€ gehen grade so OK.
