  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
      90 90
      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.

    Balance (21)
    Not bad for 9 years old ... considering my love for the distillery, I spent a fair amount of time on the sample, with water and without / 3 different glasses ... I haven’t bothered so long (86)
    • Nose
      With water: duchess pear, fruit, wood, salt and oil, citruses, mineral notes, marmalade and lemon .. a bit of sweet grass ... pastries. Without water: citrus-salt ... nothing new, well, except that the grassy notes became drier (22)
    • Taste
      With water: dry, spicy, citrus. Without water: in principle, everything is the same (22)
    • Finish
      With water: woody, spicy, slightly zest and wine acidity ... salt and fruit compote ... vegetable bitterness. Without water: all the same and chocolate (21)

  4. thijs100 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Very adventurous and fun, and I kind of love it and want to give it an even higher score, but there's just not enough balance to warrant doing that.
    • Nose
      Very mild, gentle and pleasant initially. A hint of cough drops, but also ripe apple and banana, accompanied by straw and burlap, as well as a touch of macadamia nuts. Enticing stuff.
    • Taste
      Soft notes of tobacco and malted barley, a hint of soot even, but also peaches and prunes, then a touch of earl grey, but also a whisper of lemon zest. It's not your average whisky, which is no surprise given the source. A fair amount of chili heat as well.
    • Finish
      Medium in length. Peppery.

  5. HunterRomario scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Aroma: Grassy straw aroma, hay, honey, malt. So ordinary, the barrel's influence on Barol is not. (83 pts)
    Taste: The taste is slightly better, sharp, citrus, malt straw, vanilla and some perfume. (85 pts)
    Points: 84
    Summary: A shot number 7 at the Whisky Festival in Radebeul 2019. I was tempted to combine the Hazelburn + barrel with the renowned Italian red wine, and I ran well. The effect of red wine has not manifested itself, quite disappointing overall, though whisky is drinkable.

  9. 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
