Kylver 9 – 52.8% vol. 70cl
The ninth instalment in Wolfburn’s flagship Kylver series has been aged for seven years in a first-fill dark rum barrel married with two first-fill bourbon barrels – and represents our first ever rum cask release. Laid down in 2015 these casks have produced a distinctly aromatic and spicy whisky, full of Caribbean promise.
Wolfburn’s Kylver collectors’ series takes its name from the Kylver Stone. Unearthed in Sweden in 1903, it depicts the entire Viking runic alphabet: each whisky in the series is named after a different letter. The ninth letter, Hagalaz, translates as hail from the sky.
800 individually numbered bottles in total.
ON THE NOSE – Bright and bold, the flavours almost jump out of the glass. Coffee, chocolate and deep muscovado sugar aromas abound, overlaid with ripe dark fruit.
ON THE PALATE – Mocha chocolate meets sumptuous sponge pudding. Richer flavours unfold over time; there’s spiced fruitcake and plums and black cherry, all presented with a beautiful creaminess.
THE FINISH – Long, slow and smooth. Vanilla, cinnamon and soft oak smoke right to the end.
Non-chill-filtered & natural colour
