A new single malt distillery which beat out Old Pulteney to become the most northerly mainland distillery. The distillery logo celebrates its location in Scotland’s far north, featuring the legendary Sea-Wolf – said to bring good luck to all who saw it. Certainly, everyone who sees this logo can consider themselves lucky, as excellent whisky is nearby! Wolfburn marks the renewal of a previous 1800’s distillery found a stone’s throw from the current Wolfburn’s site. Indeed, they continue to use the same water-source that the first distillery did. This young whisky maximises means other than great maturity to create flavour, focusing on a long fermentation and trickle distillation. The whisky has also been partially aged in quarter casks that once held peated Islay whisky. The result is a wonderful whisky, with a light clarity of flavour, and a dense mouthfeel. The palate is rich with sea air, lime rind and wood smoke, whilst the finish brings notes of nutty chocolate accompanied by a slightly floral edge. This whisky is bottled at 46% ABV, and without chill filtration or colouring.
