Hazelburn 10 Year Old Rundlets & Kilderkins 2003
Springbank // Campbeltown, Scotland
From the Springbank Distillery in Campbeltown, the Hazelburn 10 Year Old Rundlets & Kilderkins 2003 is named for the smaller barrels used to mature the malt. These smaller casks, sixty & eighty liters (roughly sixteen & twenty-one gallons, respectively, for us heathens), were used back in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries to sell whisky directly to market. Today, we now recognized the added surface-to-volume ratio hastens the oaking process to some degree. Distilled in 2003, this is the third and final entry in the Rundlets & Kilderkins series; Springbank bottled one such edition for each of its labels: Hazelburn, Springbank, and Longrow. As with all Hazelburn malts, it is tripled-distilled and unpeated. Non-chill filtered and bottled without any additional colorants at 50.1% 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.
