Wolfburn Batch No 375
Situated on Scotlands rugged north coast, Wolfburn Distillery was first established in 1821, rapidly becoming the largest distillery in Caithness. Named after its water source (burn, being the Scots word for stream), today Wolfburn is the most northerly whisky distillery on the Scottish mainland, and our master craftsmen fashion their whisky the same way it was always made: by hand, using only the finest ingredients, and without haste.
Wolfburns third small-batch release has been matured in a unique combination of half-size, first fill, ex-bourbon barrels and second fill Oloroso sherry hogsheads. Crafted entirely from unpeated spirit this is a sumptuous, rich, sweet tasting whisky. Consisting of just 5,500 bottles this is a very special dram indeed.
Soft bourbon aromas mingle with sherry sweetness. The depth of flavour is huge - on the palate sultanas and coffee mix with cream and caramel, with overtones of ginger and oak. The finish is superb; a mix of caramel and dried fruit lingers long after the dram is gone.
