This very limited release consists of just 980 bottles in total. Crafted from spirit matured purely in ex-bourbon quarter casks it is a shade over seven years old. These small casks have done an amazing job of producing a wonderfully mature and rounded single malt whisky. Sweet, smooth and classy in character, it’s a great example of a traditional hand-crafted whisky – and it’s a thoroughly enjoyable dram.
Nose: Sweet fruit fragrance meets fresh sea air. Zest of lemon and lime is also present, and just a gentle hint of peat smoke.
Palate: Hints of grapes and honey are overlaid with soft hazelnut and oak. Wolfburn’s classically floral flavours abound, augmented with hints of dried fruit and cinnamon.
Finish: There’s a surprising sweetness at the end, with hints of toffee and brown sugar coming to the fore. Traces of peat smoke remain to give a beautiful lingering finish.
