An older expression as part of this recently launched series of blends from Scotch whisky giants, William Grant.
The series pays homage to Hazelwood House, a property occupied by grant family member and supercentenarian Janet Sheed Roberts. This house had a distinctive Art-Deco design, with the 1920s style providing the inspiration for the bottle and box designs of House of Hazelwood whisky.
The 25 year old sits at the top of the current range, and contains a greater amount of “rare single malt” than the 21 and 18 year old bottlings. Glenfiddich’s Malt Master Brian Kinsman oversaw production, and each of these whiskies were married in American oak, for a richer, oakier flavour.
Drinkers should expect notes of toffee, toasted grain, maple, brown sugar, vanilla, intense oak spices and cream.
An entirely elegant whisky.
