    I have to admit am not necessarily a fan of Hazelburn or Springbank. But this bottling convinces me to check my bias regularly. Very good recommendation from my whisky mates.

      Intense, sour and sweet strawberry, Haribo sweets, creamy, orange peel, hints of vanilla, herbs, lemon thyme... and a bit dirty. Alcohol very well integrated - after fast sip more of the cask gets uncovered, more spices, cloves

      That's pretty strange! The first Hazelburn which turns out to be really pleasing to me on the palate. Tingling start, woody, strawberry, hints of dark chocolate. Perfect intensity, no water needed, the dirty part of hazelburn stays in the background, matching my preferences.

      Good balance of sweet and bitter elements, again some herbs, just medium length with medium intensity.

    A magnificent bottling. Contain everything that makes Hazel special. The alcohol content is perfect and brings the aromas across perfectly.

    Cool hazel. All the typical notes in the aroma, may slightly sag in taste, but the finish is level. 22-21.5-22-21.5

  10. Mondrian scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Signature Hazelburn Golden Delicious apples, vanilla, butter, hint of cinnamon. This smells like apple Strudel in Christmas time. Mouth thick, oily, mineral, sugary sweet, a delight. As if that's not enough, water adds fruitiness: a different kind of apples, the idea of peat gets support, plus grains and hard Italian cheese. That is, water gives you additional layers to explore.

    What first sounds like excessive cask treatment works very well here. Lesson for today: re-charred casks are superior to first fill casks as they deliver sweetness without necessarily pushing the whisky into vanilla-liquorice-pencil territory (as all of those aromas have been sucked out by the time the cooperage felt the need to restore the cask).

    The fun of any Mitchell whisky is the erratic notes across the range. Unpeated on paper, there is a hint of peat here, although not as much as with other Hazelburns. The other way round, I have found the Hazelburn apples in recent bathes of Springbank 10 as well. Those who saw the "grain management" at Springbank can imagine, how these cross fertilizations might have happened ;-)

    This one is in line with previous Hazelburns by Cadenhead's that came out in 2019/2020. Totally different from the annual Oloroso releases.
