Collectors note: Springbank's labels almost always arrive with minor wearing and markings, most often to the top of the front labels. This is unavoidable. If you are likely to be disappointed by minor label scuffing, we recommend you don't buy these whiskies.

A 'back vintage' Hazelburn from a period when the distillate was clearly shining bright. Notes from whiskyfun.com reference a circa 2014 bottling so expect the same or similar very high quality as described below. 46% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... They’re very discreet, and yet they make a brilliant malt. Actually, I’m not sure they distilled enough Hazelburn in the past to keep us happy (and quiet). Mind you, it’s triple distilled, so they need to do much more work. Not quite the latest batches, I’m late once again, but remember we have only one taster at WF, and that that taster’s only got one liver. Colour: white wine. Nose: if their aim was to make a much lighter Springbank, I’m happy to report that they failed miserably. Granted, this is lighter than Springbank (and than Longrow, a fortiori), but it’s still got his magnificent fatty and mineral profile that’s so amazing to us lovers of the ‘old Highlands’ style. Sunflower oil, paraffin, tinned pineapples and oranges, perhaps roses and perhaps litchis. So it is theoretically lighter, but it’s no light whisky. Mouth: well, I believe they could distil it seventeen times, it would still be some fat and ‘wide’ spirit. Exceptional palate, as waxy and lemony as waxed lemons. Plus clay, olive oil, drops of seawater, and a gingery earthiness that’s just perfect. Finish: long, waxy, mineral, perfectly bitter. Comments: love these total failures. A lighter Springbank, mwahahaha… (insert long cavernous echoes here)… Oh and I think it beats the Rundlets and Something 10 yo that came out at the same time fair and square. 90 points - whiskyfun.com
