WOLFBURN Single Malt Single 10 Years Old Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish
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.
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.
