Whisky Reviews for Hazelburn Rundlets & Kilderkins

54 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.87 points

  1. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    For a non-peated malt, the ashy character is remarkable. Also that perfumy rose scent is very particular. The current average score of 87.5 is exactly right in my opinion, I'm having a hard time choosing between 87 and 88.
    • Nose
      First rose perfume, very sweet. Then lime, mango, apricot, papaya, ginger, vanilla, caramel, almond and a little malt.
    • Taste
      Lime, ash, mango, chocolate, honey, vanilla, litchi and roses.
    • Finish
      Mocha, lime, ash, caramel, lychee and again those rose petals.

  2. nhuber scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Great one, higher strength and cask influence from the smaller casks take it to the next level compared to regular hazelburn 10. Love it. 89/90

  3. Jackson05 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    What a great dram! I wasn’t sure what to expect with some mediocre excitement in some reviews. It’s very similar to springbank 10. A little cleaner, with more salt, punchier, a little peatier (what a surprise!). Dare I say I like this more than my beloved Springbank 10? Pushing 91 to me, but let’s temper our excitement. A well made malt. I would seek out another. I like it better than the Longrow Rundlets (88)

      A surprising whiff of peat (ash) to kick things off. Minerals toned down, some lime, liquid honey, peach and apricot. Fresh, clean, assertive.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Oily, viscous, even slightly waxy. It’s not far off from Springbank 10 to me. Perhaps a little punchier. Lychee, matcha, apricot, salt, vanilla, very soft minerals, a little licorice.
    • Finish
      91 91
      Great salty finish. Surprisingly long with peach, lychee, lime, green tea. It’s a salt rimmed margarita, with a little ash in the back. Really great finish.

    Very good!

  5. thijs100 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    It has that great Springbank fingerprint, yet it lacks a bit of balance and complexity. That said, I would certainly not say no to another dram.
    • Nose
      Hints of paraffin and ozone, as well as a fairly outspoken minerality. It oozes that Springbank DNA. A subtle earthiness accompanies honey and wax, with some toasted cereals and peaches as well.
    • Taste
      Big, oily spirit with a pinch of salt, and a good amount of almonds and roasted peanuts. A hint of chili pepper too, as well as licorice.
    • Finish
      Lingering spices and a whiff of toasted oak.

  7. ctu scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Complex, but restrained Hazelburn. Interesting whisky.
    • Nose
      Fresh. Peach, marzipan, hay, antique leather, medicines, herbals and peanut butter.
    • Taste
      Oily and fresh. Salted minerals, grass, almond, banana, pepper and lemon peel.
    • Finish
      Medium length, spicy.

  8. Falnor scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A nice dram with nice flavours, but I expected a more complex dram because of the 'Rundlets & Kilderkins' It gave more vanilla and oak.

  9. Bodensee090780 did not rate this whisky Member Junior

    Matured in smaller 60 & 80 litre Ex-Bourbon casks which in turn impart lots of wood into this single malt which gives it more intensity of flavour and colour.
