The annually released Hazelburn Sherrywood range provides a stark contrast to the fully Bourbon matured Hazelburn 10 year old. Matured in 100% Oloroso Sherry casks, this 12 year old release is a complex, full-bodied dram.
A familiar sea salt element introduces this whisky, with the sherry influence then coming through in notes of dried fruits, raisins, dates and an earthiness on the nose.
Velvety and smooth on the palate, there are initial notes of liquorice, ginger and prunes, with sticky caramel and vanilla as it opens up.
Notes of black forest gateaux, fruits of the forest and bramble provide a rich conclusion to this dram.
