The first standard release from the new Wolfburn distillery. This expression is matured in ex-Islay quarter casks made from Spanish and American oak, bottled at 46% and nonchillfiltered. A long fermentation of 75 hours coupled with a slow distillation has given the whisky a sweet fruit and malt character with a hint of smoke from the casks.
Nose: Initially sweet with notes of fruit and fresh sea air. In the background you’ll find citrus freshness and hints of cereal, and just a trace of peat smoke.
Palate: Sweet, nutty tones come to the fore, with hints of grapes and honey in the background. Floral flavours abound, enhanced with just a hint of coffee and dark chocolate. It is a lovely rounded whisky, which coats the palate to leave just a trace of peat.
