  1. LordBellamy scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    with water: it doesn't really need it, it becomes almost too easy and the young people get through more

    Conclusion: two good sherry barrels, great creaminess and red berry fruit. My first Wolfburn, which I enjoy, but still too young
    • Nose
      dry raisins, a few red berries (currant), burnt caramel, a little vanilla, dry wood, creamy
    • Taste
      very creamy, silky mouthfeel, nice balance, cream caramel, raisins, subtle smoke
    • Finish
      light sherry, berry fruit, wood, some smoke from the campfire, subtly dry, cloves and nutmeg, slight note of fruit

    Despite the slight sting, which I don't always like and didn't bother me here at all, it was enjoyable, as was that musty leathery sherry sweetness. I like that and that's why I like this smooth Wolfburn quite a lot. I will focus more on Wolfburn again.
    • Nose
      A deep, heavy and musty sherry sweetness comes my way! Lots of fine leather and sweet pastries with cream toffees and oak.
    • Taste
      Pepper and again the musty sweet sherry note. It's a bit spicy and burns a little but not unpleasantly. Oily and again the fine leather with oak, roasted aromas and hints of sweet syrup like turnip greens. Served with yeast pastries with raisins.
    • Finish
      It still burns a bit but it's still comfortable and "vitalizing". It is sweet and musty, orange and again bars of fine leather and oak, caramel aromas counteract the burning. The finish is quite long.

      Salt, salty caramel. Leather. Fermented grapes. A little alcohol hits at times. Pepper. A little yeast appeared the second time.
    • Taste
      83 83
      The language is softer. More salt, and more and more of it. Then a little bit of sweetness and acidity. There are spices and pepper. Over time, the pepper fades and caramel appears. The second time there is a little cocoa.
    • Finish
      81 81
      A little salt, a little sweets. Salty caramel. Maybe traces of fresh fruit and floral notes. The second time there is cocoa. Medium-long.

    • Taste

      Delicious with a chocolate, but sharpness is present
    • Finish
      81 81
      Does not linger too long

    definitely don't want to drink that again!

      fuuuu, something weird, fermented fruit/jam or the Chinese black egg, doesn't work for me
    • Taste
      80 80
      the weird thing is still here, otherwise young and sweeter, a bit metallic, spicy
    • Finish
      81 81
      longer, kind of sweet

  12. craide scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Not bad, but not good either ... nose presents well, but also very simply. The palate, on the other hand, drops a lot in the second sip. Slightly alcoholic. So drink quickly ... :))
    • Nose
      84 84
      Spicy, slightly woody start. Malty,
      In addition, a slightly fruity note. Oranges, plums and some fresh berries.
      Nuts and chocolate to the background.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Creamy, slightly oily, with a spice that is a bit chili-hot. The fruity berries and oak penetrate the mouth with a tingling sensation. The second sip then has a more alcoholic effect than fruit brandy. Bitterness permeates more. He makes a rather immature impression.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Relatively short finish, a bit alcoholic, sweetish, vanilla.

    Recommendable
    • Nose
      93 93
      red berries, dried fruits, candied fruits, later strong crème brulee
    • Taste
      85 85
      full-bodied, creamy cream pudding with sweet dried fruits
    • Finish
      80 80
      medium-long heat with a sharp alcohol note (despite water)
