    • Nose
      Light fruits such as orange, pear, grapefruit and lemon dominate the first nose. Some honey is added. Vanilla and caramel complete the rather light and fresh-looking aroma.
    • Taste
      Strong, voluminous, sweet and fresh start thanks to the 46 volume percent. Very oily, creamy mouthfeel. In addition to the bright fruit notes from the aroma to crystallize exotic fruits, such as mango and papaya added. The lemon and grapefruit make for a slightly acidic impact. A light honey note and a little milk chocolate make themselves felt. Some spice can also be perceived, which is increasingly powerful, but not too dominant.
    • Finish
      Medium long, sweet, light fruits continue to dominate and a fine spice passes the dram. Overall, very round and balanced.

  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    This is a Monster Standard Dram that can seamlessly join the Springbank Range.
    • Nose
      I like the Hazelburn nose. Fruity, clean, slightly wet stone, some Springbank gummy bears, a hint of smoke.
    • Taste
      In the mouth then more of everything, a lot of spice, orangeate, even some smoke, the distillery's origin can not be denied.
    • Finish
      In the finish minimal sulfur. Seasoning, mineral, liquorice, fruit.

    We begin with an ideal looking sighter, one I’ve not had before. The nearest I’ve got to it is a 10yo Rundlets & Kilderkins batch which I loved, but of course, it’s a totally different beast.

    N: A light nose but the quince & blackcurrant jellies are pleasingly present.
    T: A drop of water is highly recommended. Tasty!
    F: An example of excellent composition.
    C: A light barley-led dram that deserves a permanent place on my shelf. Scores 85 points easily.

  5. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A very peaty and waxy Hazelburn.
    Blind tasting.
    • Nose
      Waxy, briny, white pepper, fruity - lychees and citrus. Vanilla and clear with plaster and minerals.
    • Taste
      Pepper, waxy, briny, coastal, some peat, custard and burned sugar - crème brûlée. Eggs - meringues, minerals and gingerbread.
    • Finish
      Roasted nuts, pepper, vanilla, woody - wood smoke. Quite peaty! Later more malty and waxy.

    [Color] light straw;
    • Nose
      fine vanilla, pears, citrus aromas, sweetness (honey);
    • Taste
      voluminous sweetness, sharpness, (exotic) fruits (grapefruit, mango), honey and a lot of vanilla, spices;
    • Finish
      medium length finish, creamy, sweet yellow fruit; in the end spicy and dry furry;

  7. NielsZ scored this whisky 84 points Member Junior

    Rather light & easy drinking, an enjoyable pure, clean and simple malt whisky.
    • Nose
      Mineral notes, hint of solvent, green apple, banana and oak.
    • Taste
      Fresh citrus vanilla, mint, green apple, quite young and a bit harsh in taste. Fruity or even flowery bouquet.
    • Finish
      Medium long finish with vanilla, oak and mineral notes, perhaps even slightly smoky.

  8. HammerHead scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      87 87
      A sweet flowery honey note, shortbread cookies, pear, lychee and apricot. Some vanilla cake, waxy with paraffin and a slight solventy note, also almonds and ginger spices.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Creamy, a touch of salted butter, beeswax, honey, pear, pineapple, caramelized apple, pencil shavings, mild wood spices.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Short to medium in length: wood spices like pepper and ginger, wrapped in a wax like fruit (pineapple) and honey coating.

  9. yellowcake scored this whisky 83 points Member Senior

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