  1. whiskyinstitut scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    A Hammer-Dram, which unfortunately could not quite convince the crowd in the tasting. But now I finally understand why: This whisky is suitable for the sofa and not for a hectic tasting. With time and peace, he unfolds a grandiose complexity, which I have not yet experienced from Hazelburn.
    • Nose
      95 95
      Complex mineral notes, citrus notes, coastal aroma, oak spiciness, dry wood, sparkling lemon juice, everything very interwoven and barely separable, one stands in the middle of the warehouse
    • Taste
      90 90
      Mild and citrusy start, creaminess and mineral punch fight on the tongue, the oak wort is there without being dry
    • Finish
      91 91
      Spicy, full-bodied, maritime and mineral, completely blended and harmonious

    I don't want to waste a lot of words here, except: simply brilliant.
    • Nose
      Warm butter cake, a fresh and salty breeze from the sea, mineral aromas, dried apricots, fresh peach slices. Very fresh and maritime.
    • Taste
      Very creamy entry with lots of toffee and caramel, quickly accompanied by dry wood and leather aromas. Apricots and peaches, raisins, dried figs. Mineral, salty.
    • Finish
      Long, dry, minerally, subtly fruity.

  5. Bene37 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nose: crisp, aromatic, brown sugar, orange, apple, dates, nutty, marzipan, some cinnamon and a pleasantly musty note

    Palate: creamy, full of sweetness, baked apple with marzipan and raisins, orange, milk chocolate, nougat, nutty, a hint of cinnamon

    Finish: medium length, tart, orange, sherry sweetness, some spicy wood

    Rating: chic thing where sherry aromas and nutty aromas complement each other perfectly. Yummy stuff.

    88/100 or 7/10

    Hazelburn 2001-2018 Private Cask #36 49.3% Abv
    Meaty texture, light stewed apples, rotten old metal, ripe bananas, lime peel, sea salt. 89
    Light lime, red apple, sea salt, fennel, rich fat, brown sugar crisp, with the flavor of born nuts, and grapefruit skin veins. The wine is okay. But the flavor is a bit strange, and the metallic feel is too strong, which is not quite balanced for my personal feelings. 87
    Metal, fennel tannins, bitter grapefruit skin veining. 87

    • Nose
      92 92
      warm malt, spicy crust of fresh pumpkin pie.. clean bees
      -wax.. roasted almonds.. some smoke (probably from the roasting of the almonds :) water brings forward freshly squeezed lemons, ginger and mint.. almost like those effervescent flu tablets dissolved into cold, sparkling water
    • Taste
      90 90
      fruity, honey-sweet.. incredibly floral at the end.. quite Japanese at heart
    • Finish
      87 87
      spicy, sweet.. not very powerful.. short-lived traces from the Magnificent fireworks show.. sweet & spicy, that’s how i would like my old age nostalgia

    if Springbank would take over Ben Nevis.. or is it the other way around..?
    or better yet.. if Springbank would marry Ben Nevis.

    ..in my (very humble and appreciative) opinion, the owner
    made Scotch history with this spirit.
    • Nose
      93 93
      heavy oils, minerals and just an outstanding blend of fruits.. leather and polish.. freshly roasted almonds and coffee in the background.. where the wild herbs grow.
    • Taste
      92 92
      bitter sweet and yummy.. apples in a slightly burned in the oven apple pie.. more fruits and just a hint of smoke. the oak is clearly there, but just so well enveloped in oils and tannins.. in the end, the sweet wins the day. also, oranges.
    • Finish
      90 90
      long.. tart..bitter limes.. almost fizzy.. slightly saline with a hint of wet wood

    Hazelburn 2001 Private Cask, 17 YO, OB, 49.3%, B:2018, Refill sherry cask 36, 276 bottles. Price:
    Colour: Old gold
    Nose: Round, mellow, elegant, slightly malty and nutty (hazelnuts), with some sea brine, light mineral and harbour-like flavours. Slightly fruitier and less smoky and peaty than the Springbank.
    Taste: Malty, fruity, juicy to very juicy, mellow, on soft leather, orange, tangerine, some hand made fudges, sea brine, soft spices and tarte tatin. The finish is long, very pleasant, on soft spices, stewed fruits, tarte tatin, nice malty flavours, some orange, tangerine and mango. Diluted it becomes slightly bolder and spicier, with light nutty flavours and some butterscotch.
    Impression: A mellow and well balanced whisky, on nice cooked fruits flavours, tarte tatin and soft spices (mainly cinnamon). The oldest Hazelburn I have seen and tasted. Dangerously drinkable. Thank you Nick.
    Rating: 16/20 FP:D1

    This is possibly one of the finest whiskies I have had the pleasure of drinking, leaves a subtle warmth in the palette and is a smooth drink. I would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys a good whisky.
