Whisky Reviews for Hazelburn 2001 CA

9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.15 points

  1. GJR scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Fresh, slightly sweet, slightly minerally, lemon, lime and lemongrass. Very light smoke in the background.
    • Taste
      Moves from fruity to floral notes with increasing sweetness (heather flowers, or heather honey), a bit like marmalade.
    • Finish
      Pretty long, but also very subtle due to the light tones. Especially fruit, honey, but also a slight spiciness linger.

  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    The triple burned by Springbank is not as tame as one would imagine. Complex, exciting whisky.
    • Nose
      Mineral, fruity nose, something maritime, fresh is there, hints of smoke, some citrus. Over time, the nose becomes sweeter, vanilla, bright fruits, but the mineral remains.
    • Taste
      strong onset, clear spring bench Orangeat notes, tart oak tingling, fruity and indeed a hint of peat smoke.
    • Finish
      mineral, tart, fruity, sounds sweet-tart notes, hints of peat smoke. Unfortunately not so long.

    Official notes from the distillery
    • Nose
      First off the nose is more complex than the style of production would lead you to believe, lemon zest, banana peel. Oily and grassy with a faint medicinal note.
    • Taste
      Very refreshing, slightly nutty with an earthy edge. Hints of melon, peaches and dried apricots criss cross all over the palate. Complexity mingled with elegance!
    • Finish
      Creamy, with flashes of lime, vanilla and mandarins take the finish on another tangent, almost delicate for a short time but then in comes a more rich tone that lifts the creamy vanilla tone with a delicate sweet spice.
