Whisky Reviews for Hazelgrove 2000 MBl

11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.50 points

  1. St. Pauli scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Springbank hardly dissappoints. Nor does it this time. Great.
    • Nose
      Quite dirty and muddy, with plenty of aniseed, all sorts of roots, soft peat, lemon. Then, there is honeyed barley, a little bit of paraffin, and (sub)tropical fruits (peach is most prominent).
    • Taste
      Rather rounded and almost like fluid licorice. It's quite salted, earthy and root-y (like chewing on licorice root), a little damp earth, peat, peach, banana and honeyed barley.
    • Finish
      Long and pleasant, almost not bitter at all, with returning notes of licorice root, tobacco, damp earth and peat, tropical fruit, mint and just a little bit of pepper.

  2. Ruud6421 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Wonderful IB Hazelburn. Typical Hazelburn quality from a highclass cask.
    • Nose
      Very well balanced nose with a lot of flavours. Lets see here. At first it's waxy, almost Clynelish like. In combination with the wax it's creamy. A lot of summerfruits and spices (nutmeg) as well. An abundance of Orange zest to finish it of. Oh wait... Maybe just a hint of smoke.
    • Taste
      A body the way I like it. Mouthcoating and tingly on the tongue. Some more briney and malty notes than in the nose. And defintely some smoke.
    • Finish
      Really long, nutmeg and lemon peel.

  8. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Blind tasting.
    • Nose
      Wax, some chlorine, fruity - pine apple and coconut.
    • Taste
      Oily, wax, some polish, bitter fruits, pan cakes and citrus.
    • Finish
      Vanilla, fruity, orange and later more bitter fruits.

    Tasting Notes by Dramtime.nl:

    Nose: toffee, dried fruit and sweet malt

    Palate: soft, dark chocolate, coffee and nuts

    Finish: subtle oak with roasted almonds, ginger and sweet marshmallows

  10. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Sweet and clearly light for a Springbank product. Peach, caramel, mango, milk chocolate, vanilla, apple and a subtle whiff of peat. In the long run a little marshmallow. Water releases some salt and a slight vegetal whiff.
    • Taste
      Apricot, caramel, milk chocolate, pepper, hazelnut, apple, papaya, almond and a little peat. Water releases more salt and pepper.
    • Finish
      Apricot, caramel, mango, peat, salt and marshmallow.
