  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Usually I find Hazelburn a little dull, but this is expression with a peaty character is very delightful.
    • Nose
      Attractive nose with mix of smoke and sherry influences. Raisins.  Stewed fruits. Also beefy notes. Some leather.
    • Taste
      Rich and round. Quite punchy actually. Lots of tanninnes. Sandalwood and pencil shavings. Cocoa-butter. At the background forrest fruits of blackberries and cranberries. Black coffee as well
    • Finish
      Medium long. Bitterness. A litte nutmeg. Becomes salty at the end.

    Very well balanced, with a lot of presence. But easy drinkable though. My first Hazelburn and I can only say: happy to have met you!

    Beautifully balanced Hazelburn with beefy sherry influence and typical Springbank minerality.

  5. ThS scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Nagging. The sherry is powerful, the distillate much less, so that one and the other seem to stay side by side without ever getting married.
    • Nose
      Caramel, dates, a little sulfur and alcohol. Nose lean, almost emaciated, and giving an impression of "crunchy". A sherry a little caricature on a light distillate.
    • Taste
      Young and alcoholic. Rather lean, dry and drying. Immediately sulfur, then caramel and more dates.
    • Finish
      Long. Caramelized sulfur on a roasted woody background.
