Hazelburn 14 Year Old Oloroso Cask Matured 2019 Description
Springbank have yet again produced another beautiful expression of their Hazelburn malt, this time matured for 14 years in nothing other than an oloroso sherry butt. Bottled at 49.3% you would expect this whisky to express tones of strong alcohol, but it does quite the opposite. It is soft to the nose and sweet on the palate.
Nose: fruit and nut chocolate followed by a slight hint of almonds, bitter chocolate and pecan pie.
Palate: leathery and creamy to start with drops of raspberries and jammy fruits developing into a strong flavour of blueberry muffins and pear drops.
Finish: the mouth is filled with warm flavours of salted caramel, coffee beans and a slight spice of cracked pepper.
