  1. Falnor scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A dram that gives room for a good spirit. This is about the character of Hazelburn and not about an easy infusion of taste through the cask. A nice IB that isn't all that modern.

      A sweet, somewhat shy beginning on marshmellow, fresh vanilla and bourbon notes. Chalk and rocks wich gives a clean maritime feeling. After that a combination of cardboard and pine nuts.
    • Taste

      Not so shy on the palate. Big on pepper, oil and coastal whiffs of stone and minerals. A moderate amount of fruit notes. There's definitely lemon and some grapefruit to be found. Also some coal.

      Furthermore towards the spicy side. Some caramels and orange.

    Decent HB from Cadenheads. Pretty mineralic and maritime, nice fruity hints and some spices.
