Hazelburn 10 Year Old Review

Distilled & Bottled by Springbank

Region: Campbeltown

Type: Single Malt

Hazelburn is the standard release of Springbank’s unpeated malt whisky line. It is triple distilled and as always, bottled without chill filtration or added coloring. Hazelburn is named after the Hazelburn Distillery which operated in Campbeltown from 1825 to 1925. At one point, they were the town’s largest producer of Scotch whisky.

Tasting Notes


Nose: Sweet and approachable with notes of honey, canned peaches, fresh pear and spice cake.

Palate: The viscosity is medium in weight while the palate is initially spice driven with ginger, allspice, and wood spice. Orchard fruit returns with notes of cooked apples and pears.

Finish: Medium in length with a continuation of the fruit theme. Lingering notes of peach pie with some sweet vanilla cream topping. There’s also some amaretto-like sweetness with a slight contrasting bitterness that adds a bit of depth. The finish tapers off with more of the spice notes from the palate.

Rating: 7/10

Conclusion: No peat? No problem! Springbank’s Hazelburn 10yr is delicious whisky with an approachable set of flavors and enough spice and depth to keep things interesting. This elegant whisky maintains a balance of flavors that highlight the distiller’s finesse in making quality Scotch.
