Color
Pale straw
Nose
Čerstvé, citrusově svěží a zároveň medově nasládlé aroma. K tomu se přidává i travnatost, sláma. (85 b)
Taste
Chuť dobře ladí s vůní. Dřevíčko, lehce bourbonový šmrnc, vanilka, kořenitost. (85 b)

Ochutnal jsem na Whiskyfestivalu 2017. Mládí je na jazyku znát, tělo je poměrně tenké, ale celkově jde vzhledem k věku o solidní whisky, sherry sudy jí, zdá se, pomohly, určitě mám z Aurory lepší dojem, než z prvního plnění palírny nazvaného Hand Crafted.

ça commence très mal ! Agressif, végétal. En bouche, c'est "moins pire" qu'attendu. Le fût de sherry arrondit bien les angles. Ça reste jeune et levuré, mais pas déplaisant.

Enthousiasme 3/5

N: The Aurora is one of a number of Wolfburn releases for 2016, presented with a 20% sherry influence. The oloroso element is subtle enough to give the distillate all the room it needs, and we know their distillate is good.


T: Soft distillate approach…..


F: …….with a neat & tidy form.


C: According to distillery manager Shane Frazer [interview], the Aurora profile was the distilleries intended direction from the beginning. Their excellent ‘Hand crafted’ debut 3yo, [also bottled in 2016] WB81.45[106] WF85, was an accidental yet serendipitous result. I find this more deliberate release equally fine.

Nose

quite fruity on melons and peaches, slightly earthy, reminds me of some bere barley expressions I had. slightly alcoholic but all in all very fresh and clean
is there a thread of smoke? cannot get any sherry influence but it doesn´t need it.not bad considering the young age.

Taste

oh, very good! absolutely fresh and mouthwatering, very fruity on peaches and really, I could swear they used bere barley for that one. it dries slowly and pleasantly without getting bitter and without loosing the fruity side.

Finish

medium to long, very clean

Comments

I must say I am impressed. young but very good. I will buy me one or two bottles of this one.
87/100
