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.
90/100

Salz oder eigentlich noch viel mehr ein deutliche mineralische Note! Vanille, Ananas, leicht erdig. 

Taste

Salzig, pfeffrig-prickelnd, Ingwer, leicht bitter, mehlig und trocken, irgendwo versteckt sich frischer grüner Apfel. Wieder Ananas, getrocknete Ananas um genau zu sein, Vanille im Hintergrund;

Finish

Mittellang, trocken, wieder salzig und mineralisch zugleich, eine angenehme Eichennote.

Comments

Schöner klassischer Whisky aus dem Bourbonfass. Straight, schnörkellos und gut!

Erinnert sehr an den Laddie Ten, nicht wegen des leichten Rauches, sondern wegen eines Anhauchs von Babykotze.

Da ist aber auch sehr süßes Holz, milder Honigduft.

Taste

Im Geschmack eher würzig, vollmundig, sehr angenehmes Aroma. Etwas pelzig, trocken, fast wie Holzspäne.

Jetzt ein Hauch von Vanille. Der wird immer besser...

Finish

Mittel, fruchtig.

Wow!

oxidization brought out beautiful orange notes, smoke and maritime notes

Nose

sweet, grassy, floral, musk, vanilla/almond extract, light earth, farmy, oily butter, hints of citrus

Taste

grassy, citrus, butter, spicy alcohol, lime, slightly lime peel bitter

Finish

short-medium, grains, grain sweetness, lime peel, grainy bitter, grass/nuts and butter at the back with hints of orange/lime followed by lightly roasted sugars

Comments

well made (as it is with all the springbank lineup), but nothing special, similar to a vanilla floral speysider like ancnoc or balblair
