Wolfburn Single Malt Scotch Whisky - Batch 270
This is Wolfburn's second limited edition release, made in small 100L first fill bourbon barrels.
NOSE. Fresh and lightly fruity; the aroma of tinned pears and apple combined with the sweet dustiness of a woolen mill and a light vegetal note behind. It has this mix of sweetness which flirts with oiliness but then bursts into fragrant white fruit blossom. Water brings out a more obviously youthful side, but there's real class here.
PALATE. Direct, with quite fleshy fruit - those apples and pears with added ripe melon, some sweet mash, while the florals are more bluebell-like. The mid-palate remains sweet and well-balanced. Again, only on the back-palate (and with water) do you get the sense of its age.
FINISH. Jersey ice cream
