Very light in color. There are hints of peat and brine on the nose although I’m not sure if this is actually a peated whisky. The palate is light but complex with only traces of peat. It is triple distilled which gives it a very clean feel and a smooth finish.

This sounds really smooth - how does it compare to something like a Dalwhinnie?

I'm not a huge fan of Dalwhinnie. It just does not deliver enough flavor for me. It's one of those whiskies where descriptors like "delicate" and "subtle" are code for "tasteless" and "bland". Granted, I haven't had Dalwhinnie is several years. I have a more refined palate now. But, I would choose Hazelburn over Dalwhinnie based on my memory. There is a little more richness and complexity to it.
