Wolfburn has become Scotland’s northernmost mainland whisky producing distillery since it released its first single malt in March 2016. Having had a dark past before, this whisky is definately here to stay, with long fermentation, slow manual distillation and maturation taking place at least partly in quarter casks that previously held peated whisky from Islay, this is a release is somewhat of a hit to whisky drinkers. Light and fragrant with a subtle peaty tones apprearing, this one is utterly delicious.
Wolfburn Inaugural Release Highland single malt Scotch whiskey. Limited edition of 875 bottles from the very first casks filled at Wolfburn in 2013. Each bottle is individually numbered and engraved. and presented in a hand-made oak box. Fruit and malty aromas with just a hint of peat on the nose. On the tongue. sweet and nutty flavours are present which coat the palate to leave a very slightly pleasant flavour of smoke.
Wolfburn Aurora was a late 2016 release from the Wolfburn distillery, this whisky was matured in a combination of three casks – 40% of was aged in second-fill quarter casks, 40% in first-fill ex-bourbon barrels and 20% in first-fill Oloroso Sherry hogsheads. The result is a deliciously sweet whisky with notes of sherry goodness, cereal undertones and some warm winter spice.
