Whisky Reviews for Hazelburn 12-year-old

48 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.46 points

  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 84 points Super Administrator

    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.

    Its a likable whisky indeed. But it wont win any awards, if you ask me.. (84pts)
    • Nose
      I think the nose is kind of weak, but warming. Disappears a little too fast from the glass... I can smell a lot of wood here. Resin(?), vanilla and nuts.
    • Taste
      Its smooth, I can tell u that. Its butter, and wood. You can really taste the oak.. Earthy is a good word to describe the mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      Medium long finish here. The 46% does the whisky good. I can taste a sweetness that I like. But I want it to be longer...

    A surprising whisky. Without a shadow of the doubt, this whisky has the Springbank signature. Starts off well, but the finish is to my opinion not that good. I would buy a bottle in case the finish would have been better.

      I had expected a 100% non-peated and not smokey whisky, but in the smell there is for sure a sense of smoke; light though. Nice. Feels like coming home, as Springbank is my favorite.
    • Taste

      Fruity; spicy, slightly smokey. Nice but for sure not outstanding.
    • Finish
      83 83
      The weakest part of all. Medium long. Starts nice, but after a while I start to dislike it. Somewhat dry and weak. Finally somewhat bitter.
