Whisky Reviews for Hazelburn 08-year-old

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.26 points

  1. Magnus Hillman scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    There is an impressive complexity and a deep, the nose and the palate are not entirely synchronized but the balance is there and this whisky really made an impression on me. I found it amazing.

    (Rating interval 87-91)
    • Nose
      Butterscotch, salt caramel, vanilla fudge, licorice, instant coffee, breakfast cereal, vanilla crackers and sweet apples with custard.
    • Taste
      Full-bodied, spicier than recognized on the nose, cinnamon, pipe tobacco, burnt sugar, instant coffee, golden delicious apples, yellow pears or gooseberry. Some dark fruits as well, plums and prunes, I believe.
    • Finish
      Long and spicy finish with cinnamon, pepper, brown sugar and pickled ginger or caramelized ginger. 

  2. Lafroy scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Notes of light sweetness, salt, a lot of countryside
      aromas, strong influence of port wood, light sweet citrus notes, a little bit
      of smoke, hints of barley and delicate fruits.
    • Taste
      Sweetness, fruits, notes of white pepper, hot
      sensation in palate, chili, sweetness again and hints of grass.
    • Finish
      Long, relatively hot with a lot of pepper
      and dryness.
