Nose

Helle Früchte wie Orange, Birne, Grapefruit und Zitrone dominieren die erste Nase. Etwas Honig gesellt sich hinzu.  Vanille und Karamell runden das eher leichte und frisch wirkende Aroma ab.

Taste

Kräftiger, voluminöser, süßer und frischer Antritt dank der 46 Volumenprozente. Sehr öliges, cremiges Mundgefühl. Neben den hellen Fruchtnoten aus dem Aroma kristallisieren sich exotische Früchte, wie Mango und Papaya hinzu. Die Zitrone und Grapefruit sorgen für einen leicht säuerlichen Einschlag. Eine leichte Honignote und ein wenig Milchschokolade machen sich bemerkbar. Etwas Würze lässt sich ebenfalls wahrnehmen, die zunehmend kräftiger, aber nicht zu dominant, wird.

Finish

Mittellang, süße, helle Früchte dominieren weiterhin und eine feine Würze verabschiedet den Dram. Insgesamt sehr rund und ausgewogen.

Nose

Sweet and fruity - tropic fruits like ananas and papaya; after a while dry notes are developing - dark demerara sugar and a little bitterness. The oak and with it the vanilla is in the nose.

Taste

Very fine and uncomplicated. It's a taste of vanilla and sugar. Oily and warming. On the palate there are dark fruits, which can also be found in a sherry cask matured whisky. The sweetness is delightful.

Finish

Medium, sweet, vanilla and again the tropic fruits, reminds me of a cocktail, but I forgot its name.

Comments

This whisky is quite easy to drink and a good starter.

Nose

Sturdy, creamy nose on breakfast cereals, white fruit, paraffin, frying oil, litchi from a can and vanilla. Underlying you’ll detect the typical characteristics that you also find in Springbank such as chalk, jute and ship’s rope. Soft and inviting, though clearly young.

Taste

On the palate, I immediately think of Springbank as well, but without the peat (note to self: doh!). Very creamy, spicy, waxy on paraffin, lime, chalk, (a lot of) ginger and something of cod oil. A salty note. But claiming this is completely unpeated, seems a bit off the mark. Could it be residue in the pipes? I do get an unmistakable peaty tang on the nose – which is very good, by the way.

Finish

The finish is medium long, mineral and waxy and – surprise! – quite smoky. It dies a mildly bitter death.

Comments

The nose was young, but not disturbingly so. On the palate and finish, this is simply marvelous. But unpeated? I think not.

Nose: Very fresh fruits like citrus, melon and green apple notes, some icing sugar no peat at all.

Taste: Again fruity, low on the oak so I think refill barrels are used. I think this would be great at cask strength.

Finish:  It is 10 years old, so no long or intense finish, but very fresh and none of the bitterness from the bourbon casks.

Conclusion: It got the typical Springbank notes, it is lighter because of the triple distillation but not at all weak or light. I like this a lot. I would love to taste this at 15-18 year maturation.

Nose

süß-saure Ananas, schöne Torfrauchnote, Honig, Aprikosen, helle Früchte

Taste

salzig-süß, Sandelholz, Apfel, hinter dem angenehmen Rauch macht sich etwas Schärfe bemerkbar

Finish

Karamell, Aprikose und Torfrauch - mittellang bis lang

Comments

angenehm intensiv und rund, aber eindimensional

am besten gefällt mir der leichte Rauch, den ich (Nichtraucher) hier deutlich bemerke. Offiziell wird nicht-rauchiges Malz verwendet - vielleicht Rückstände von den Bränden für Springbank und Longrow?

Nose

we all know, that this should be unpeated, but if you have ever stood in the kiln of springbank after they dried the barley for a longrow you get an idea of how peat aromas find their way even into a hazelburn.
very sooty and ashy in the first two minutes. then a fresh and mouthwatering fruitiness emerges mostly on lemons, grapes and peaches. a very fine acridity. icing sugar.
very good!

Taste

fruity and superclean. mineral, lemons, cereals, a very light maltiness. waxy mouthfeel.
sounds like a simple whisky, doesn´t it?

Finish

medium to long, very clean and appetising.

Comments

even better than I remembered it. 2 points up.
I´m more and more becoming a fan of hazelburn.
