The Hazelburn 15 Year Old Oloroso Cask Matured 2023 Release is a distinguished and limited edition single malt, exclusively matured in Oloroso Sherry casks. This 2023 edition is a prized addition to the Hazelburn Sherry Wood range, renowned for its annual releases that offer a unique and contrasting experience to the fully Bourbon matured Hazelburn 10 year old.
Aged for 15 years and bottled at 55.8% ABV, this release is a testament to the complexity and full-bodied nature of a dram matured in 100% Oloroso Sherry casks. With only 9,000 bottles available worldwide, it represents a rare opportunity for connoisseurs and enthusiasts to experience a unique expression of Hazelburn's craftsmanship.
Nose: The Hazelburn 15 Year Old welcomes you with a delightful array of aromas. The nose is greeted with notes of cherry menthol and red cola, creating a refreshing and inviting start. This is complemented by the richness of date syrup and the indulgent scent of black forest gateaux. As the whiskey rests, it reveals softer undertones of fudge and caramel, adding depth and warmth to its aromatic profile.
Palate: On the palate, this Hazelburn expression strikes a perfect balance between richness and refinement. The initial flavors of toffee apple provide a sweet, yet tart sensation. This evolves into the distinguished notes of leather-bound books, adding a vintage character. The palate is further sweetened by hints of demerara sugar, rounded off by the creamy and luxurious taste of creme brulee.
Finish: The finish of this exquisite whiskey is long and memorable. It leaves a lasting impression with flavors of rum-soaked raisins, providing a rich and fruity depth. The experience concludes with the comforting taste of vanilla sponge, leaving a velvety smoothness on the palate.
