Nose

Zu Beginn der für Hazelburn typische Blecheimer, das ganze wird von einer süßen Mischung aus Kaffee, Schokolade und Trauben umspielt, ölig, eine dezente Gewürznote wird dann dominanter, getrocknete Tomaten mit Oliven, sehr vielschichtig und interessant

Taste

Süße Schokolade, Kakaopulver, der maritime Blecheimer ist auch wieder da, viele Gewürze und Orangenschale 

Finish

Eiche mit maritimen Einfluss, sehr würzig und kakaohaltig, ein insgesamt mittellanger Abgang 

Comments

Der Hazelburn-Blecheimer ist wirklich einzigartig!

[May, 2017]  I had this dram during a Springbank Masterclass tasting at the Campbeltown whisky festival.

The nose is all about a modern sherry style with raisins, marzipan, demara sugars and wooden notes.  It arrives a little (tongue) coating in the mouth without hot or peppery moments.  The taste is on vanilla-toffee and sherry-induced flavours again (red berries jam, creme brulee).  The finish adds dark chocolatey flavours and is neither bitter nor dry, just like a creamy liqueur.  Some water smoothens the dram and releases more chocolatey flavours that are really nice.  But too much flattens it out.

This dram proves that the modern sherry style can produce a very delicious whisky too...

Nose

Copper polish, honey, yellow raisin, minerals, limestone, plaster, papaya, peat, blueberry and cherry. Later tangerine peel and green banana. Water adds green apple peel.

Taste

Oily, peaty, peppery and waxy. Honey, papaya, fig and orange. A splash of water easily tears apart that lovely texture, better keep it as full strength.

Finish

Great unity of the thick waxy honeyed texture and the peat. Some mango, cherry and vanilla in the background. Eventually some toasted - slightly burnt - brown bread.

Comments

Nose 86, taste 87, finish 88.

N- Open up quite grassy, with stale scents of chilled chocolate's bar and lots of red dates, followed by more raisin and dark fruit after aired out the greenish tinge. Thick milky and cooked malt reveals with firm texture. Semi-expressive if to compare to other great singular cask type bottling by HB.


P- Authentically Oloroso as it is, loud and astringent mandarin orange peel. Dryness building up with more tart fruits come fore, damped tobacco leaf as well the lightest hint of mineral lurking. Bitter chocolate and herbs at the tail with flinty nuance.


F- Medium-long, baked cookies with chocolate and dried fruit chips, some crushed hazelnut and almond mix, subtly spicy with drift of molasses.


— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Открытый, сухой, лёгкие дымно-торфяные нотки, минеральные оттенки - подсыхающая штукатурка, каменная крошка; зерно, свежие овощи, зелёные пряные травы, фруктовые и цитрусовые тона на заднем плане, слабые винные мотивы.

Taste

Лёгкий, насыщенный, лимонадно-минеральный, лимоны, цветочно-травяные тона, лёгкие торфяные нотки, слабый дым, взрывающаяся карамель.

Finish

Лёгкое, воздушное, лимонно-минеральное, лёгкие, сладкие кондитерские нотки, пряный дуб, совсем немного дыма и торфа.

Comments

Приятный, воздушный, "прозрачный" молт, отлично сбалансирован, очень лёгкий, но достаточно мощный и насыщенный, весенний, достаточно молодой, но это совершенно не напрягает.
