Hazelburn 14 Years Old 2002 Cognac Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky Review: An interesting expression, really sweet and fruity, well-spiced and borders on becoming a little woody and tannic towards the finish. I’m not sure what I was expecting with this but it appears to carry a lot of classical ‘Cognac’ flavours whilst keeping that slightly musty and dirty “Springbank” sweetened barley malt backbone. I could really grow to like this one, lets hope they bottle the remainder of the cask soon. 87/100

Hazelburn 12 Years Old (46%, OB, 2010)

Yum, I enjoyed this one a lot. Plenty of sherry wood character in here but matched with the malt and oaky wood character also. This Hazelburn still has that Springbank meaty, malty and a little machine oil character but is more sprightly and carries the tannic, dried fruit and nut sherry-influence with pride. 87/100
