Whisky Reviews for Hazelburn CV
7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 79.50 points
- Very Springbank style. Salty, slightly smoky and the beautiful candied orange peel. A young but delicious whisky.
- Following the success of its heavily-peated Longrow CV expression, without an
age statement, J A Mitchell & Co Ltd of Campbeltown has followed up with a
Springbank CV and now a Hazelburn CV. Versions of the trio were previously
available in a triple-pack of 20cl bottles. Hazelburn is triple-distilled and
was first produced in 1997. Eight and 12-year-old expressions are also available
in addition to CV. Initially slightly mashy and herbal on the nose, with acetone
and cigarette packets. Citric and maltier with time. Orange, ginger, vanilla and
sherbet zest on the spicy palate. The finish is medium in length and spicy, with
a slight suggestion of salt. A fresh, breezy, aperitif whisky.
- He has a beautiful light golden color, with the nose a
malty and spicy fragrance.
The mouth contains
Hazelburn CV tones of honey, banana and apple peel, malt
pencil eraser, kerosene and a tad greasy.
The finish is quite long and
greasy with citrus and candied fruit.
- A reasonable dram with some complexity. Although the CV versions (Springbank/Hazelburn) are not my favorite ones, this is not a bad one. It devellops quite a lot (more sweetness - peardrops).
Pure: light sea breeze, malty sweetness, slightly peaty and woody (diluted: fruity maltiness, some briney notes).
Pure: briney, spicyness, slightly some vanillins (diluted: salty sweetness, nice wood spices, some fruit).
Pure: warming with some spicy notes (diluted: floral like notes with some white pepper).
- Sweet nose with some grassy notes. A bit harsh on the palate and with bitter notes coming through in the finish. Lacking in complexity, but a nice relatively easy-drinking dram.
- A sweet mix of sweet vanilla with malty cereals, honey and flowers. Fresh and fullbodied snd again honey and barley, very pleasant in the mouth. A middle to long finish with a warm and sweet feeling. It reminds me on some irish whiskys isn`t it?
- No my favorite, but worth a try.
Spring flowers. Lightly malty. Kellog's Frosted Flakes cereal
Cream. Cereal and malt. Light notes of flower shoppe. Burnt sugar?
Medium short, but very refreshing. A springtime or summer dram.
