Wolfburn Single Malt Scotch Whisky - Batch 375
46% ABV. Wolfburn's third small-batch release is limited to less than 300 bottles for Australia, and what an exceptional wee dram it is. Crafted from unpeated spirit, it has been matured for around four years in a combination of half-size, first-fill bourbon barrels (designed for Kentucky's Woodford Reserve) and second-fill, Oloroso sherry hogsheads. Thanks to the rapid maturation from the small barrels, the resulting whisky is rich and complex in flavour, with a beautifully sweet and aromatic nose and a lingering finish.
On the nose you can expect sherry sweetness as well as heather honey and apple blossom. The palate is at first sweet and creamy, with soft bourbon, vanillin notes intertwined with dried fruits, ripe apple, gooseberries and maple syrup all here. The finish lingers on and on, with the honey tones present until the very end. It is a truly beautiful dram.
