KayMeertens gave this whisky 89 points
Color
Tawny
Nose

Candied orange and cherry. Toffee, papaya, milk chocolate and peat. A clear malty note as well. Some peach and vanilla when adding water.

Taste

Toffee, candied orange, papaya, hazelnut, milk chocolate, peat, coconut and spice.

Finish

Toffee, peat, candied orange and peach.

A very special Hazelburn.

Color
Burnished
Nose

Very dark in colour, and quite “Christmas cake-y” on the nose for straight ex-bourbon, too. Malty, with rich caramel. Coconut. Some dried fruit. Vanilla

Taste

Rich, malty, characterful. With water: More spicy, some oranges

Finish

Warming spice. Dark/dried fruit. Lifted by vanilla and honey. Deep orange flavour

Comments

Spirit and wood in balance. This has taken a lot from the wood in its 12 years. Excellent cask - first fill? Richer than I would expect from Hazelburn - closer to Springbank.

I don't want to be a master. When I'm learning something, I'm in my element. - Chick Corea

Mascht gave this whisky 90 points
Color
Russetmuscat
Nose

leicht, Leder, Honig, mit Schokolade überzogene kandierte Orangen und Wildaromen wie ein gebeizter Rehrücken

Taste

maritim, weich und mineralisch

Finish

lange, weich, Tafelkreide und etwas Trockenfrüchte

Comments

ein tolles Dram, erinnert mehr an einen Springbank als an einen Hazelburn

theograph
Expert Senior theograph Tasting note
22 Dec 2017 9:58 pm
theograph gave this whisky 90 points
Color
Auburn
Nose

Karamell, Schokolade, Nuss, Marzipan, Gewürze (Nelken), Leder/Tabak, dunkle Fruchtraromen, fast schon Sherry-Style, erdig, dezent rauchig und vor allem wunderbar mineralisch - kalkig oder gar salzig;

Taste

Deutliche rote und reife Fruchtaromen, Tannine,  Säurenoten, Gewürze, dunkle Schokolade, Assoziation zu Rotwein, mineralisch - kalkig;

Finish

Mittellang, schön fruchtig, fast schon mit Weinnote, mineralisch;

Comments

Ein genialer Hazelburn, ein Ex-Bourbon-Fass das mit einem Ex-Sherryfass oder gar einem Rotweinfass zu verwechseln wäre!

Malinois gave this whisky 88 points
Color
Russetmuscat
Nose

Clean minerally (only at first), whiff of peat, oranges, peach

A bit later: the same as above but more oranges. 
Taste

Candied oranges now, peach, a bit spices and more peat as in the nose. The entry is quite soft & mouthcouting at this abv% and age.

After some sips the light sweetness comes out and also more fruity. 
Finish

Light sopy, oranges, whiff of peat, later a bit tannanic & dies a bit dry 

Comments

Very nice dram, I like it a lot. Very nice enjoying this at a leazy sunday like this.

Would have scorred one point higher if the eind of the finish wasn't so dry (for my standards)
