WOLFBURN Single Malt Single 10 Years Old Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish

Categories: ,

Wolfburn is the most northerly distillery on the Scottish mainland. Originally founded in 1821, all of Wolfburn’s single malt whiskies are made the traditional way: without haste, by hand, and with a huge emphasis on quality. The results are superb, and Wolfburn’s special releases are consistent winners of international spirits competitions.

Wolfburn’s smooth and easy- drinking character stems from the way it is made. Long fermentation is followed by slow and gentle distillation to makes a pure, smooth spirit. Maturation takes place in purpose-built warehouses just a short distance from the sea.

This 10-year-old single malt marks a significant milestone in the history of the distillery: it is our first ever age-statement release. Crafted from spirit fully matured in hand-selected second-fill Oloroso sherry butts, a full decade in Spanish sherry oak has resulted in a delightfully sweet and sumptuous whisky – a fitting testament to the skill, dedication and patience of Wolfburn’s master distillers.

Tasting Notes:
Nose: Soft sherry sweetness melds with figs and raisins. There’s a lovely hint of vanilla and oak present too.
Palate: The depth of flavour is tremendous. Bold chocolate and dark fruit flavours abound, with overtones of caramel and vanilla, all accompanied by gentle hints of nutmeg and oak smoke.
Finish: Silky tannins make for a beautifully textured finish; there’s a residual sweetness with dried fruit and caramel flavours lingering to the very end.
