Whisky Reviews for House of Hazelwood 25-year-old
3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.80 points
- Nice blend from two rare distillers (Kininvie and Girvan). Only the 40% is the "problem". :)
Vanilla, milk caramel, malt, grain, floating island, coconut and cereal.
Creamy. Vanilla pudding, honeyed milkfoam, banana shake and coconut milk.
Medium length, sweet, spicy.
- You can’t argue this isn’t drinkable and well balanced – but at the same time, it’s just incredibly dull. The extensive marketing text behind this bottle makes real play of it being ‘married in American oak’ – oh come on – however, what it’s really saying is that a lot of a first-fill casks have been used to pump enough vanillins into this whisky to at least make it good enough to bottle. However, at over £150 for 50cl and at 40% ABV I’ll let you judge for yourself whether that’s really good enough.
