Color
Pale gold
Nose

Helle Früchte wie Orange, Birne, Grapefruit und Zitrone dominieren die erste Nase. Etwas Honig gesellt sich hinzu.  Vanille und Karamell runden das eher leichte und frisch wirkende Aroma ab.

Taste

Kräftiger, voluminöser, süßer und frischer Antritt dank der 46 Volumenprozente. Sehr öliges, cremiges Mundgefühl. Neben den hellen Fruchtnoten aus dem Aroma kristallisieren sich exotische Früchte, wie Mango und Papaya hinzu. Die Zitrone und Grapefruit sorgen für einen leicht säuerlichen Einschlag. Eine leichte Honignote und ein wenig Milchschokolade machen sich bemerkbar. Etwas Würze lässt sich ebenfalls wahrnehmen, die zunehmend kräftiger, aber nicht zu dominant, wird.

Finish

Mittellang, süße, helle Früchte dominieren weiterhin und eine feine Würze verabschiedet den Dram. Insgesamt sehr rund und ausgewogen.

Very nice whisky, I think it is 100% ex-bourbon because of the vanilla and tropical fruits in the nose. I think this is how a good Lowland or Irish whisky should taste like.

Color
Old gold
Nose

Heather, grass, some flowers and pistachios. I was expecting a lighter style, but it comes out strong. Some unripe banana as well. With water there's some more kiwi notes and the flowers come out stronger.


Taste

Orange zest, lemon, hazelnut, some tobacco leaves perhaps? With water there's more fruitiness, the banana from the nose returns, accompanied by red apple and slightly burnt sugar.

Finish

Some orange zest, somewhat bitter oak, burnt sugar and a fruity note, perhaps nectarine?


Comments

I was surprised by this one. It's a very busy bee and quite complex.

Serge:

Hazelburn 10 yo (46%, OB, +/-2014) Five stars Not quite the latest batches, I’m late once again, but remember we have only one taster at WF, and that that taster’s only got one liver. Colour: white wine. Nose: if their aim was to make a much lighter Springbank, I’m happy to report that they failed miserably. Granted, this is lighter than Springbank (and than Longrow, a fortiori), but it’s still got his magnificent fatty and mineral profile that’s so amazing to us lovers of the ‘old Highlands’ style. Sunflower oil, paraffin, tinned pineapples and oranges, perhaps roses and perhaps litchis. So it is theoretically lighter, but it’s no light whisky. Mouth: well, I believe they could distil it seventeen times, it would still be some fat and ‘wide’ spirit. Exceptional palate, as waxy and lemony as waxed lemons. Plus clay, olive oil, drops of seawater, and a gingery earthiness that’s just perfect. Finish: long, waxy, mineral, perfectly bitter. Comments: love these total failures. A lighter Springbank, mwahahaha… (insert long cavernous echoes here)… Oh and I think it beats the Rundlets and Something 10 yo that came out at the same time fair and square. And the price is insane (£36 or something). Go buy bottles (S., please!) SGP:452 - 90 points.

Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Vanilka, med, citrusy, slad. Hřejivá, v pozadí je pak sladké koření. (85 b)

Taste

Na jazyku silná, výrazná, ostrá. Sladká, pak se převalí ovoce, citrusy, aby kořenitě doznívala. (87 b)

Ochutnána na Whisky festivalu 2016 v rámci Springbank masterclass, solidní 10 yo whisky.

Color
Old gold
Nose

Good quality white chocolate, vanilla, cakes, mature red apples. 

Taste

Vanilla, a lot of apples, sugar, cake dough and some cacao. 

Finish

Same as the palate. Very well balanced, and a whisky on the “sweeter side”. Still offers quite a lot of ‘oomph’, despite it being very sweet.
