  1. Andytka3 scored this whisky 61 points Connoisseur

    Light and disjointed, diluted new make with hints of canned fruits, some sweet malts, but irrelevant. You can nose it hard whole hour and still not getting much out from it. Probably from a batch with high proportion of refill casks. Tart and feather light.  Young, short and generic. Certainly needed more "cask time".

    delicious to drink, for the age already very balanced
    • Nose
      no movement after pouring: fresh fruity white wine, no alcoholic notes, then nutmeg and slightly sour, pleasant later with movement: malt, the white wine note recedes in the background, slightly sour bread dough, clove and nutmeg, candy note, water note
    • Taste
      Smooth and then sparkling, tingling, pleasant, fruity with malt and sweetness, licorice, cereals, on the palate slightly bitter and wood / chocolate,
    • Finish
      In short, the notes are weak, grain salt and some wood

  3. Calmar scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    A young but pleasant mole, there is a certain potential in the basis, the first pancake did not go far; it's very simple and simple, but some depth is visible, there is no sense of boredom and senselessness of the process when tasting, it will be interesting in the future to try the more seasoned spirits of this distillery.

    • Nose
      Open, a lot of grain, moonshine notes, very young, herbaceous tones, a few vegetables - turnips, zucchini; apples, a little lemon peel, very weak peat and smoky shades.
    • Taste
      Oily, sweet-grain with peppery wave.
    • Finish
      Spicy, sweet-moonshine, orange peel, grapefruit crust, light notes of pickled cucumbers, a little oak.

    Young whisky, of course. But characterful nevertheless. And no fancy wood trickery either. Kudos.
    • Nose
      Subtle orchard fruits, like apples, but also white grapes and banana. Somewhat grassy, with a hint of ash and smoke. It is plenty sweet, by the way. Think vanilla and marzipan.
    • Taste
      I really enjoy the oily texture. The palate is a tad dry, and showcases some cracked black pepper. There's also room for a pinch of salt, as well as a light touch of smoke. Some sweetness remains, as do the green and yellow fruits, but certainly not as pronounced as on the nose.
    • Finish
      Spicy and nutty.

  5. larswehmeier scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    The very first whisky from Wolfburn shows for me already an amazingly high quality and makes it clear that much can be expected from the distillery.
    • Nose
      First, fresh bright fruit-fruitiness. Over it a delicate plume of smoke that comes salty and reminds of the beach. With time in the glass, he becomes more and more grassy toward straw and
    • Taste
      Light and mild on the tongue. The smoke is in the background. Fresh and fruity.
    • Finish
      Quite short, but already slightly spicy. Already surprisingly round and hardly metallic.

  10. Archer scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    The wolf shows his teeth. He has rough edges, the youngster. A few years longer in the barrel should take the sharpness on his tongue. If there are still a few corners left, so much the better. Potential is there.
    • Nose
      Fresh, fruity first impression. Daisy flowers and freshly mown grass provide freshness, red apples and green grapes for the fruit, honey, biscuit and a light malt note.
    • Taste
      After the promising nose, he is on the palate bite as expected. The 46% are heavy and a bit scratchy on the tongue, his youth you notice him. Lime blossom honey, vanilla, milk chocolate. Besides sawdust, that was it, too.
    • Finish
      Medium to short, dry. Still fruity, but without that you could separate different flavors from each other in the finish.
