Small Batch 318 – 46% vol. 70cl
The sixth instalment in Wolfburn’s small-batch series, Batch 318 has been crafted from a combination of lightly-peated spirit matured for a little over seven years in first-fill Oloroso sherry butts, married with spirit matured for seven years in first-fill bourbon barrels. These casks produced just 4,800 bottles in total and the result is a sweet, rounded, sumptuous whisky with an outstanding depth of flavour.
ON THE NOSE – Figs and apricots mix with soft tones of peat smoke. There’s a hint of vanilla and oak present too.
ON THE PALATE – The depth of flavour is tremendous. Honey-laced porridge meets stewed apples and sultanas. The peat brings with it a touch of heat, while soft oak spices – cinnamon and cloves and ginger – are also present, all overlaid by a wonderful sherry sweetness.
THE FINISH – The finish does not disappoint; dried fruit and caramel flavours remain to the end and are neatly overlaid with hints of lingering peat smoke.
“A great insight into everything that is Wolfburn: our trademark smooth, sweet spirit, enhanced with a hint of peat. It’s a classic North Highland dram.”
Mark Westmorland, global brand ambassador.
