Small Batch 204
This small-batch release has been matured for five years in first-fill ex-bourbon barrels then finished for six months in first-fill Madeira hogsheads. The result is an exceptionally sweet whisky with an extraordinary depth of flavour, rich in colour, warmth and vibrance.
ON THE NOSE – Rich desert-wine aromas are readily present, augmented by deep bourbon sweetness.
ON THE PALATE – Sweet and full – give it time and a whole array of flavours unfurl. Gentle notes of burnt sugar lead the way, overlaid with hints of soft oak and vanilla tones. Hazelnut and gentle hints of orange are present too.
THE FINISH – Sweet tones linger on the palate and gradually melt away, leaving a wee trace of honey and butterscotch at the very end.
“This small-batch project gives my team and me a chance to try new things. Madeira casks are a step in another direction; a chance to see how this type of wood and the Wolfburn spirit combine to make something new and, at times, unexpected.
“Adding sweetness and a change of impact to the initial ex-bourbon matured Wolfburn, it is a dram that I am sure will go down well this autumn.”
Iain Kerr, Distillery Manager.
