  1. rottendon scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    This is a very pleasant contemporary who also undergoes an interesting development in the glass.

    Notes from a blind tasting.

    The finish is really good, you would not blindly but in retrospective, it has had a positive impact. Also a nice example of the incredibly soft alcohol that Hazelburn brings. By the way, he lacks the certain boredom that is inherent in many Hazelburns, this one is really not one-dimensional.
    • Nose

      First of all, very mild on the nose, only a little lemon and something dirty are present, but after a few moments, but supplemented by ripe apples. After a little more life a completely different picture, breathing really does it very well! Burnt almonds, delicate smoke, some vanilla, light hint of stale white wine and light mineral notes, slightly dusty. With movement also malt and yeast. With warm juicy ripe pears are added, the smoke is much more present. Still no sign of alcohol in the nose.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Very oily, almost tough, the alcohol comes with a time delay with pleasant pressure and without any pungency, the taste is mineral and slightly dark sweet with clear tannins right at the front. Fruitiness is not visible to me, but the roasted almonds go well with some beet syrup. In the second sip also slightly sour white wine notes, not strong enough to disturb.
    • Finish
      89 89
      The finish is medium long and begins already with dark sweet bitterness which then dries on. Mint easily stuns the mouth. Some ashes lie very gently on the tongue.

  4. Mannix65 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    very balanced, an unmistakable Springbank distillate - requires extensive ventilation in the glass and a drop of water - I could not see the Barolo influence
    • Nose
      Coffee, mocha, vanilla, heather, baked apple, ripe banana in the background and a hint of smoke even further back
    • Taste
      Salt on the tongue, soft and velvety, yet very voluminous, honey, vanilla, a little idea of ​​grain and grass
    • Finish
      Very long lasting for his little age

  9. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    First time I've had a barolo cask finished whisky. Not sure I am a fan, but willing to try another one from another distillery. 
    • Nose
      Malty, sourish, and a bit floral and perfumey initially. And then, lots of apple juice.. wait did I pick up the wrong glass?!? Also a bit of almond butter.
    • Taste
      A bunch of disjointed flavors. Very peppery. There's a bit of that sourish note I mentioned. White wine for sure, and also some lime. After adding a few drops of water, more of that apple juice along with more maltiness. A bit chalky and medicinal also. 
    • Finish
      Peppery finish. With water, this ends abruptly, with a lingering bitterness. Doesn't swim so well. 

  10. Andytka3 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    N- Highly fragrant and estery malt with loads of juicy citrus honey, avocado and dried apple. Subtle sea air with well integrated sour sweet tobacco after breath. Hints that remind me of moist farm-y nuance with soft camphor and chalkiness.

    P- A Hazelburn that are as comforting as always, solidly built with plenty of charms and hardly any harshness no matter how young or old. Flavourful rounded citrus with earthy texture of soft cigar taste.

    F- Medium long, chewy and spicy tannin with subtle fruit stems bitterness, touch of zest linger. Excellent breakfast dram. Simplicity with quality.— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
