Hazelburn 10y

Advent Calendar 2020 2/24

Reviewed by victor

Tasting 24 samples totally blind in December 2020, you can find more here. All notes except the very last few sentences are written before reveal. Disclaimer: These are all very small drams, around 1.5 cl each, so doing a proper tasting is challenging. I'll do my best!

0.3 (Pale gold)


Some sherry influence? Oranges, dried fruit, cinnamon, chocolate.


Round, doughy, malty, some fruit.



Must be some sherry involved here - especially given the winey finish. I like the mouthfeel and roundness. Not very exciting, but good. I'd have it again. Guess: Sherry (refill probably), around 43%. Something similar to Oban 14 (again, I recognized the mouthfeel on the Highland Park 12). Reveal: Hazelburn 10! New to me. I'd love to try it again with some more room to see if there's more to it. Check out my other advent tastings!
