Official Hazelburn Tasting Notes
Colour - Reddish Auburn!
Nose - Warm and embracing: homemade Seville orange marmalade on a buttered, toasted cinnamon and raisin bagel. Orange liqueur, burnt demerara sugar, treacle, honey, figs and dates emerge from the sidelines as the aromas develop.
Palate - Buttery, creamy and rich with orange fondant cream and ginger bread biscuits. Hints of honey and chili glazed brazil nuts, sweet and warm.
Finish - The longer this whisky spends in the glass the better it gets. It has a thick and creamy finish that pleasantly lingers on for a long while, leaving you feeling very content.
