Hazelburn 8 Year Old Review

Hazelburn 8 Year Old Thank you to my good friend Danny (@dramstats) from the Dramstats Whisky Blog for the sample of this Hazelburn 8 Year Old.

Part of a limited outturn of 5,100 bottles. This eight year-old is much sought after. Hazelburn is distilled at the Springbank distillery and named for a nearby silent distillery. It is unpeated and triple distilled.

I've not spent too much time with the Springbank distillery but i really should spend more time with the Sprringbank, Longrow and Hazelburn whiskies getting to know more about them.

You can still pick up a bottle from Master of Malt

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

there's a strong cereal note to begin with here which reminds me of freshly crushed cornflakes then a slight whaft of smoke, like driving quickly past a row of old cottages with their chimneys ablaze, underlying that is a small amount of malt loaf and lemon and lime zest.

Palate

initially there's a gentle sweetness from citrus fruits, then it goes all cereal and malt crushed cornflakes, weetabix and malt loaf, there's even a wee hint of thorntons toffee in there

Finish

not the longest but there is a sweetness there for sure.
