Whisky Reviews for Wolfburn 2015 - Vibrant Stills
10 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.75 points
- Young and not very complex but a nice little dram for in between. Not an all day dram though. Sherry, sweet, Vanilla.
- Nose: Nice depth of many characteristics.
Taste: Sharp, but beautiful.
Finish, deep and intense.
This is one of my tastiest Wolfburns so far!
After pouring in it appears that the dram has to air something. Let it get used to the amount of oxygen.
After airing you can smell green apples which brings something sour, red apples which makes it sweeter, but especially cherries, wood, grass, something of raisins and dark chocolate. I also find something of kiwi and citrus.
Lots of cherries, wood and pepper !! Firstly, Caramel, grassy.
Slightly sharp, possibly due to age, but I certainly see potential in this whisky.
Cherries, pepper, wood, chocolate, kiwi and green apples.
The finish remains to taste in the middle.
- This Wolfburn (like the Latitude) also gets better the longer it is in the bottle. At first, an almost fermented must disturbs, but it disappears completely. It's just still young ........ Yet another promising bottling from this remarkable distillery.
Initially a nice sherry aroma with predominantly pear compote, black cherry, honeycomb, honey sweetness, menthol freshness, vanilla
Slow taste development to full-bodied malty sweetness, then the oak
Slightly (but not unpleasant) bitter, drier, medium length
Red fruits, dried fruits, nuts, cinnamon.
Beautiful sherry influences. Orange, peach, burning, sour, honey, caramel.
Nice sherry finish. There is a small acidity. Does not linger for very long.
- extremely complex in the nose and taste. The whisky is opened for special occasions and served to whisky connoisseurs.
first an alcoholic sting, but passes. Fruity sweetness from fermented fruits. Sherry note with brown sugar, dark / red fruits, plum and figs; floral note towards lavender is very weak. Later there is a banana aroma with cinnamon and some allspice. Then chocolate, black (sour) currant. The whisky changes over time in the glass, extremely complex in the nose - RESPECT for a 4-year-old.
first gently, then the 50% push the whisky well. Brown sugar and rum raisins, light spice, some cinnamon. Later (dry) dark chocolate, but no bitterness! Sweetness of fruits, roasted almonds, hazelnuts - again very complex.
medium length, becoming drier. Very slightly malty. Dry sherry and some oak. Dark chocolate (90% cocoa).
The lightness falls first, there is not so much coming out of the glass. Fresh sherry and some alcohol. If you concentrate on it and give the Wolfburn some time, light polish and some leather come into play. I always have some herbs in my nose. After some time, it opens and gives off chocolate tones, meadow with caramel is also preserved. Even after about 30 minutes in the glass, the nose is not intense ... it remains so fine.
Again, I notice the lightness, fresh soft tones, no board as I expected, much summery. Light orange notes with fine spices and a sweetness. Clearly sherry to taste and roasted flavors, the barrel was burned out more, even at the beginning of some sulfuric and burnt nuances are to taste. As I said all in a fine way, here comes nothing with Karacho ... rather restrained. At the start, he was clearly too reserved, let the Wolfburn then spend some time in the glass, so you get more and more sweet and chocolate. At least significantly more flavor than at the beginning, which can never speak of tide.
The finish is then completely fine, matching the whisky, gentle, mild, with some coffee and chocolate, very quiet and pleasant. The sweetness continues to develop here.
