Hazelburn 10 Year
Springbank // Campbeltown, Scotland
Springbank Distillery in Campbeltown produces 3 distinct labels of single malt: Springbank, Hazelburn, and Longrow. Being one of the few family-owned distilleries left in Scotland allows them to experiment with different casks, methods of distillation, and levels of peating. Hazelburn is triple-distilled and unpeated (the malt is air dried); Sprinkbank is 2.5 times distilled and lightly peated; and Longrow is twice-distilled and heavily peated. After maturing ten years in ex-bourbon casks, this expression gets bottled at 46% ABV.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
"Orchard fruits, Werther's Original Caramels, maple syrup and pear drops come first in the nose. The palate is wonderfully sweet with cookie dough, vanilla ice cream, apricot flan and some underlying fresher notes. A delicious and easy to drink dram with a sweet profile from start to finish."
