Whisky Reviews for Wolfburn The Kylver Series - 4

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.17 points

  1. WhiskyNotes scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nose: starts quite fragrant, almost floral, mixing with chimney soot and hints of lanolin. Plenty of lemons and freshly cut apples, with a mentholated edge. Grassy notes and dextrose / cotton candy sweetness underneath.
    Mouth: very sweet now, with a lot of green apples, grassy peat, cold ashes and white pepper. Oranges. Kippers and smoked tea. Just a hint of chocolate towards the end.
    Finish: medium, more chocolate, smoke and dried herbs.

    A very fine malt, especially since it’s only 4 years old. Younger notes nicely mixed with more mature elements. You’re paying a big premium for helping this young distillery move forward, but I must say it does show potential.

  2. Dre73 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Very strong and powerful whisky, with some nice smoky and peated elements, without being to overwhelming. Some nice sweetness as well, very enjoyable and pretty mature for such a young whisky.

    Fresh, sour and sweet. Nice in balance with the alcohol promotion.

      Chocolate and green apple crowd each other. The grassy continues to ensure that the freshness remains, in combination with the acidity of the green apple. The sweetness of the cotton candy will appear in the scent over time.

      Unfortunately, the finish disappears quickly. The acidity of the green apple remains the longest.
