Hazelburn 8YO Sauternes Wood 55.9% abv

What a color, red wine and bernstein was 5 years in a refill bourbon and 3 years in a Sauternes cask.

Nose: A strong cask influence as expected the wine cask has a lot done, strong wooden influence.

Palate: Sweet and oily

Finish: Long and wine cask as strongest priority.

With a teaspoon of water added

Nose: Balanced out, the main influence has gone:

Palate: Still sweet and very oily, gets stronger on the tongue

Finish: Prickling on the tongue and wine cask again

Very strong stuff, have a lot of fun with it.
