Hazelburn, 8 yr old, Single Malt Scotch Whisky

700 ml, 46% abv, Scotland (Campbeltown)

Hazelburn 8 year old was first released in 2005. The whiskies labeled Hazelburn are all distilled at Springbank Distillery, are triple-distilled, and are unpeated. The triple distillation yields a fruitier, lighter-weight, and lighter-flavored malt. This 8 year version is aged in a mix of ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks. Non chill-filtered, has no added coloring and old school handmade production.

Description

“Honey, orange, and cereal are found on the nose. The honey notes continue on the palate along with hay and nuts. Sea-salt-dusted caramels come to mind on the mid-palate. The whisky has a creamy mouthfeel and finishes a little bitter with mild barrel spices. (Stephanie Moreno)
