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.

C: white wine;

N: begins with barley, malt, to reach soon some fruits: unripe apple, traces of pears, lemons and maybe also candied orange, with time it gets more and more sweet with vanilla, then even a touch of smoke, peat and moist soil;

S: tweaks on the tongue and warms up, so it is a young whisky, when some of the first impression gets tame, sweeter accents come to action, slightly fruity, slightly vanilla and honey, with time there is a lot of grapefruit and a touch of peat;

F: rather short with grapefruit.

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.
