Eye / Nose: Visually in the glass a strong white wine color. Typically refill cask. From the red Barolo influence is only little to see. The strong malt throws when pouring large bubbles in the glass, so far so good. In the nose, after a few minutes of breathing, light honey, light vanilla and alcoholic fruit notes, as if one smelled on a freshly prepared punch. Palate: Wonderfully soft and creamy on the palate. It is better from the mouth feeling hardly. The triple distillation shows effect. Fruity, spicy. Fine raspberry notes bring a slightly vinous sweetness, pineapple on the other hand a little acidity. Elegant malt, as Hazelburn is already known as 10yo. Everything clean and perfectly balanced, warm and pleasant but not burning on the tongue, despite cask strength. 42.2% H2O are again completely sufficient. Finish / Conclusion: In the end a very fine smoky note, probably consequence of the previous Springbank storage in the Barolofässer. In addition, a little honey sweetness, behaving pineapple and last but not least, this great chalky-chalky note, the good sherry casks often convey. Absolutely clean malt, no sulfur, no exaggerated acidity, no bitterness, no other junk notes. If you want to criticize anything, it might be a few nuances more complex, but that is criticism at a very high level in this price range.
