Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Incredibly sweet, with notes of fresh vanilla cream, boiled sweets, lemon meringue pie and wine gums. Beautifully balanced and really rich.

Palate: Clean and balanced, with notes of thick, creamy, sweet malt and hints of foam banana, pear, apple peel, rhubarb crumble and melted rum & raisin icecream.

Finish: Creamy and spicy. Long finish, with butterscotch, honeycomb, hints of oily smoke and fruit gums.

User Reviews of the Hazelburn 8 Year Old 2002 - Sauternes Wood

Worth Checking out

Really great for an 8 yr - can easily be mistaken for something older. For the nose I got salty sweet, slightly medicinal, green apple and raisin tones, perhaps some peppermint, also got a smoke smell that grows stronger when water is added.

Taste is initially very sweet, creamy caramel and butterscotch. The smoke flavor takes over a bit in the finish which is of a reasonable length.

I am greatly enjoying my bottle.

Interesting one

Creamy, thick and sweet. Orange marmelade, bit of sweet oak and liquorice. Very nice indeed. But needs water to open up on it's fullest. Finish is present and nice for sweets lovers. If you liked this one, must try Glendronach Revival or some single cask range. Povilas
