Wolfburn Single Malt Scotch Whisky

First edition […]

Wolfburn is one of the youngest distillery in Scotland. It is located in Thurso, Caithness, approx. 350 meters from functioning in the years 1821-1850 distillery of the same name. Wolfburn currently holds the title of the northernmost distillery on the Scottish mainland, ahead of Old Pulteney. Distillery draws water from the stream of Wolf Burn, hence the name. As the distillery was „reborn” in 2012, the time has come for their first single malt, which just came into my hands. Presentation makes a very good impression. We have a natural colour, non-chill filtered and 46% ABV. Age… logic would dictate to take 3 years old, although there is no information about that on the label.

Score: 80. The debut of Wolfburn is behind us. I think that it became pretty good, especially for a 3 years old. Certainly there is a large merit of the natural presentation and 46% ABV. Bravo! Waiting for another, older editions. [caption id=attachment_5926 align=alignnone width=801] Wolfburn Single Malt Scotch

    Dojrzały blend

    Today I came across by a desire for blended whisky, not on standard, widely available release, but for something less common. I started rummaging in the closet, I knew that something must be there. I waded through the malts and finally found Grants 18 years old. I have tasted 12 year old version, but 18 not yet. I do not need to remind anyone that the brand is part of the William Grant & Sons. The family company, or basically a family corporation I should say, their hands focus many...

    Is Macallan still a Rolls Royce?

    The seat of Macallan is located in Easter Elchies House near Craigellachie in the Speyside. It is assumed that the distillery was founded in 1824, when production was legalized. Distillery is part of the Edrington Group, as well as Highland Park. The Macallan was commonly said to be a Rolls Royce of single malts. Distillery gained fame thanks to the high quality whisky aged in sherry casks. I had the opportunity to try these spirits eg. at The Whisky Fair Limburg. Indeed recommendable,...

    Peated NAS from Speyside

    Single malts without specifying the age are produced probably by all of distilleries. Unless Im wrong? Are there any distilleries that do not yet have NAS? Hmm ... I do not think so. Lagavulin maybe… Sometime, somewhere I read that peated whiskies receive, at least statistically, higher scores than those where peat wasnt use in the production. At the same time, it seems that whiskies with specified age, usually, but there are of course some exceptions (eg. Laphroaig Quarter Cask), obtain...

    Photo report.

    Once you get to the Isle of Islay, you should find time and visit the Isle of Jura, with the only distillery on the island at the helm. Paps of Jura are a landmark of Isle of Jura - they are perfectly visible from many places on Islay. [caption id=attachment_5733 align=alignnone width=801] Paps of Jura[/caption] The easiest way to reach the Jura from Islay is to use a small ferry, which takes off from Port Askaig and flows through the strait, directly to the Jura - Feolin Ferry....

    Isle of Jura representative

    During last Easter holidays Jura Origin 10 years old felt into my hands. There arent a lot of editions of this single malt from a beautiful Isle of Jura. Previously I described The Isle of Jura 1995 Boutique Barrels Bourbon JO Cask finish – naturally presented - the color, power, and no chillfiltration. Today, something more commonly available - Jura Origin 10 years old, bottled at 40% ABV. [caption id=attachment_5716 align=alignnone width=801] Jura Origin 10 years old[/caption]...

Information about what, in what order we drank was revealed at the end. Below I present my basic tasting impressions, but I didnt write everything during the event, in effect, records are not able to cast...
