  1. Calmar scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Magnificent, condensed sherry monster, young, naturally, but powerful and rich, mating, butterman, magnificent aroma, complex and multifaceted; there is a fortress, it is felt, but it is very harmonious in the general picture - a continuous delight in its class (I fully understand that from Hazelburn's own triple distillation only the horns and legs are visible sticking out from the all-conquering sherry barrel, but the product is magnificent, with On the other hand, if everything is so simple, then what hinders the ripening of sherry barrels and mediocre raw materials such as Tomintoule and Tamnavulina riveting masterpieces? apparently something hinders, yes ...).
