Hazelburn 8 year old, 46%
Price: $70.00 ● Issue: Fall 2011 ● Reviewer: Gavin Smith
Hazelburn was first produced at Springbank during 1997. It varies stylistically from ‘traditional' Springbank, as it is triple distilled using unpeated malt. The 8 year old expression has been matured in 60 percent ex-bourbon and 40 percent sherry wood. The nose is fresh, light, fruity, and faintly resinous, with gentle spice. Sherbet, malt, and vanilla on the attractive and lively palate, with developing spicy oak and a hint of pepper in the finish.
