    This was the best 2019 open day bottling, very smooth and long in the mouth... Definitely a class of its own, but when we came back into the shop after our Distillery tour it was sold out... Bad luck but such is life. Not cheap for 250£ but ignoring the price it was very very good, for me one of the best hazelburn ever tasted.

    N: Lovely and fruity, soft, husky dry sherry malt.
    T: A soft/slightly faded yet also fairly concentrated/recently ‘pumped’ bottling, the result of which is not too shabby. Taste-wise, predominantly toasted husky dry quince < < firm sherry vibes. Thankfully the direct sherry action subsides.
    F: Soft & humming with a waxy silky mouthfeel after a toasted dry huskiness.
    C: Very sherried well-aged whisky and therefore rather tasty. I’m glad I didn’t pounce on a £250 bottle but it is the nicest 21yo sherry Hazelburn I’ve ever had.
