Wolfburn Northland Whisky 700ml
Country: Scotch Whisky
Region: Highland Whisky
The Wolfburn distillery is one of Scotland's newest distilleries, founded in 2013 in Thurso, making it the most northerly distillery in Scotland. Wolfburn is a traditional coastal Highland style, made with unpeated malt and aged in quarter casks that formerly held peaty whisky. Softly fruity and sweet to start, with buttery, fruity (pears, ripe banana), nutty flavours that drift towards a very subtle and lingering peat smoke finish. This is a truly accomplished whisky for such a new distillery, and a taste of great things to come.
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
