Exceedingly impressive single malt from Springbank, released under the unpeated Hazleburn name. Matured for 21 years, this cracking Campbeltown spent its time in a 70/30 combo of sherry and bourbon casks, which eventually yielded a total of 3,600 bottled, released in June 2022.
Nose: Notes of leather bound books, bung cloth and dunnage warehouses are followed by sweeter characteristics of treacle, caramel and bramble.
Palate: On the palate there are notes of marshmallow and candy floss, with a syrupy mouthfeel and subtle mineral note. The earthy tone from the nose carries through.
Finish: Notes of cocoa powder, cappuccino and mint linger in the finish.
