The smooth and warming flavours present in Northland come from the unhurried way in which the spirit is made, and from the maturation, which takes place in American oak quarter casks. Matured and bottled on site, Northland represents the first chapter in the history of Wolfburn.
Non chill-filtered @ 46% ABV.
On the nose
Initially sweet with notes of fruit and fresh sea air.
In the background you’ll find citrus freshness and hints of cereal, and just a trace of peat smoke.
On the palate
Sweet, nutty tones come to the fore, with hints of grapes and honey in the background. Floral flavours abound, enhanced with just a hint of dried fruit and spice.
I continue to be blown away by this newcomer; marked in its competitive set.

Small, wee quarter casks but a big heart. Wolfburn's first whisky after a long wait and something we are all very proud of.
