    • 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

      Short to medium in length: wood spices like pepper and ginger, wrapped in a wax like fruit (pineapple) and honey coating.

    • 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.

    Comparing this head to head with the Springbank 10, this comes out as the surprise winner for me. Where the Springbank edges it on the nose, the Hazelburn is much better on the palate. This is crisp and austere, oily and brilliantly shows that good bourbon barrels are all that this spirit needs.

    The Springbank 10 is bigger but also dirtier, with some off notes from less than stellar sherry casks.

    Yes, that's good. The change from sweet, sour and tart entertains and the 46% suit him well.

    I like (without the direct comparison) the Springbank 10 anyway, because it is a bit dirtier and the smoke fits well there.
    • Nose
      Honey-sweet on the nose, light fruits with citrus notes, slightly grassy and herbaceous, but in the foreground the fruit sweetness with a slightly acidic touch.
    • Taste
      Nice intensity. Fruit and sweetness paired with citrus-fruity acidity, then it turns into the more spicy, springbank-typical, slightly dirty, and ends on a sweetly bitter note

    A really good standard. That's what Springbank is used to. Less "dirty" notes from memory than with Springbank 10. But you can already tell that it comes from the Springbank distillery. In addition honey and fruits, which even have a slope into the tropical. But also oak, which adds flavor to the malt.
