Review of the new House of Hazelwood 25 Year Old premium Scotch blended whisky.
House of Hazelwood 25 year old sits at the top of William Grant's new premium Scotch blended whisky range.
William Grant describe the new brand as an elegant and vivacious new blended Scotch whisky which has been inspired by the Grant family luminary Janet Sheed Roberts (1901 to 2012) and expressed through the spirit of the great Art Deco cities that influenced the world in her heyday.
The House of Hazelwood 25 Year Old takes its inspiration from the classic elegance of Shanghai, a city which stood at the centre of Cathay elegance in the 1920s. This release represents the Master Blender Brian Kinsman's most prized expression. Each rare single malt earned its place in Kinsmanís final selection, and the blend was then married in American oak, allowing sufficient time for the complex and diverse flavours to infuse and mellow. They describe the resultant majestic whisky as unique, rare and very special.
Presented in a 50cl bottle and bottled at 40% ABV, the House of Hazelwood 25 Year Old has an RRP of £115.
The packaging is also inspired by the classic elegance of Shanghai in the 1920s. The design focuses on the creation of a distinctive visual leitmotif associated with the luminosity of the city.
House of Hazelwood whisky range was initially launched in Paris Duty Free at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport in February 2016, it will remain exclusively in travel retail until September 2016 when it will then launch in a few select markets around the world.
If you are not lucky enough to be jetting off anywhere in the next 6 months and passing through an airport which offers the new House of Hazelwood range then you will find a superb range of premium blended whiskies as well a huge range of single malt whiskies available from specialist Whisky retailers such as
