Hazelburn 8 Year Old 2002 Sauternes Wood

Wow! for 8 years old this has a lot going on. A simply superb whisky that absolutely proves that age isn’t everything! The balance between the peat of the spirit and the sweetness from the Sauternes cask is perfect. If anything the young age gives this a raw brutality to the whisky producing something more like a true Islay malt than a product of Campbeltown. 90/100
