Hazelburn CV
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Great balance and liveliness.

Hazelburn Sauternes
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.90%
7 Amazing depth of character for such a young whisky. Has been bottled at its peak and shows a great balance of distillery character and the weird decayed glory of Sauternes.

Highland Park 1970 Vintage
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.00%

8 It is almost like they have put the usual 12 Years Old on steroids. Great stuff.

Highland Park Loki
