Hazelburn 11 Year Old First Fill Port (One Off) Review

Hazelburn 11 Year old First Fill PortHuge thanks to David (@TIA568B) from Glenuntitled.com for this sample from a one off cask sample bottle from the wonderful shop at Cadenheads in Campbeltown.

A one-off bottle taken as a duty paid cask sample, more details about the one-off cask samples here on Davids Blog.

I was over the moon when David offered me a wee dram from this sample as i'm very interested in Port casked and port finished whiskies!

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

Not as "porty" as i was expecting but definite fruits, mainly squished berries, blackberries, strawberry and raspberry. Wood Influence in there too.

Palate

amazingly smooth and sweet more summer berries christmas caske but without the heavyness of sherry lovely mouthfeel

Finish

slight glow but not as much as you would expect from almost 55% ABV, lovely and sweet
