Hazelburn CV Campbeltown single malt Scotch whiskey distilled at Springbank distillery.
Matured in ex-bourbon and sherry casks aged 6-10 years.
Nose: Passion Fruit, malt, orange peel. As the nose opens up the sweetness and malt notes really come to the front. Sweet vanilla also comes through as the whisky breathes.
Palate: The texture and body of this whisky is quite surprising. Subtly spicy notes hint at some sherry casks in the mix, however the velvet vanilla flavours are an indication that most of the Hazelburn CV has been matured in fresh bourbon casks.
Finish: Lingering and mellow with sweet salty
Springbank Distillery is the oldest, independent and family owned malt whisky distillery in Scotland having been founded in 1828 in Campbeltown at the foot of the Mull of Kintyre on the west coast of Scotland. Springbank produces three different types of malt whisky including Hazelburn which is non-peated and triple distilled and was first produced in 1997 and first released at the age of 8 years in 2005. The barley is spread across traditional malting floors at Springbank where it germinates and is then dried by hot air on the perforated floor of the malt kiln. The name Hazelburn is in memory of Hazelburn Distillery which was once one of the largest and now one of Campbeltown’s many lost distilleries and operated in the centre of the town from 1825 until 1925.
