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.

Given that Hazelburn 8 year old was first released in 2006, we guess that this must be a fairly early iteration of the brand (the first edition came with a slightly different label). It matches up with the last stocks we had circa 2008. Hazelburn gains its light, delicate character from unpeated barley and being distilled three times instead of twice as is the standard for Scotch Single Malt. A ten year old was first offered in 2015. Typically, it comes fully matured in ex boubon casks, however natural strength and sherried variants are occasionally found. This one has a light gold colour and weighs in at 46% with an outturn of 6000 bottles. Non chill filtered. Collectable.

Other reviews... I adore this ultra-intense barley style: something you can devour for an age. Wonderful stuff! 90 points - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2008.

...Nose: Very sweet with lots of estery notes: lemon, apple, bubblegum, iris. American cream soda, orange smarties. Palate: A clean, sweet, start. Barley sugar, banana, lightly floral/chestnut blossom. Water shows a touch of honey. Lovely feel. Finish: Glides away. Great length. Comment: Good impact for a 'light' whisky. Highly recommended. 8/10 - Dave Broom, whiskymag.com

'...matured in 60 per cent ex-Bourbon and 40 per cent ex-Sherry wood, [with] an annual out turn of 6,000 bottles. Light, fruity, faintly resinous nose. Sherbet, malt and vanilla on the very attractive and lively palate, with developing spicy oak and a hint of pepper in the finish. A first class whisky with real presence. Just what you would expect from the Springbank team'. - whisky-pages.com
