46% || Wolfburn Distillery
NAS Bourbon Barrel
Becoming Scotland’s northernmost mainland whisky producing distillery when it released its first single malt in March 2016, Wolfburn is built just 350m away from the ruins of the 19th century distillery from which it takes its name. 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 we’ve eagerly anticipated!
Nose: Orchard fruits, apple pie, a fresh maltiness, almonds, magnolia and a suggestion of smoke
Palate: Honey Nut Clusters breakfast cereal, sweet spices, chocolate croissant, more honey towards the end, and a subtle earthy peatiness.
Finish: Long and fresh, with even more rich honey notes
Overall: A deliciously complex single malt from one of Scotland’s newer distilleries – they are hitting it out of the park!
