Wolfburn Batch 270
Wolfburn, located in Thurso, Caithness, is the most northerly whisky distillery on the Scottish mainland. Originally founded in 1821, it was one of the biggest in Scotland in its day. Today, Wolfburn has been re-awakened under the guiding hand of master distiller Shane Fraser and is once again making truly exceptional single malt scotch whisky. It’s all done the traditional way: by hand, using only the finest ingredients, and without haste.
Batch 270 is the second of the small batch releases by Wolfburn and matured in half-sized, first fill, ex-bourbon barrels using unpeated spirit.
ON THE NOSE
The familiar Wolfburn sweetness with an underlying coconut and vanilla influenced by the young wood.
ON THE PALATE
The sweetness continues with butterscotch giving way to a warm malt mixed with honey and a hint of demerara sugar to finish.
