Aurora NAS Sherry Barrel – Scotland
46% || Wolfburn Distillery
A late 2016 release from the Wolfburn distillery, matured in a combination of casks – 40% of this whisky was aged in second-fill quarter casks, 40% in first-fill ex-bourbon barrels and 20% in first-fill Oloroso Sherry hogsheads. An exciting release from the distillery.
Nose: Almonds and pecans, with a wave of sweet, sticky Sherry notes.
Palate: Raisins, currants, more mixed nuts and fresh barley.
Finish: Lingering Sherried spice on the finish.
