Hazelburn 8 year old and Hazelburn 10 year old Single Malts
Overall: Three good drams here. The 8 year old First Release was well balanced and unctuous although I though the distillate was a little over powered by the sherry. Still a really tasty whisky and one I'm happy I got to try. Thanks again Justine!
My bottle of the 8 year old was a solid enough experience but the nose was better than the palate and it just couldn't quite match the First Release. But considering it only cost €33 I really cannot complain one bit.
The 10 year old is a delightful little drop. Elegant, fresh and interesting. The touch of peat makes it no less interesting. Definitely worth looking into especially as it will likely be much more readily available than its 10 year old Springbank counterpart, although it is a very different experience.
