Wolfburn Aurora 46% vol. Sherry Oak
Maturation: 40% second-fill quarter cask of, 40% first-fill ex-Bourbon barrels, 20% first-fill Oloroso Sherry hogsheads
Nose: note of dark chocolate, raisins in chocolate, cherries in chocolate, fruit, hints of coffee, malty, coconut chips (at least for a moment), pleasant and quite complex, nice balance
Taste: dried fruit, bittersweet, nut mix, sherry notes, fruit jam, barrel, malt, warming, nicely hidden alcohol, all delicate, not overwhelming
Finish: quite long, warming, fruity with a hint of honey and spices
Very good dram, again young but nicely composed, notes of sherry are delicate, do not dominate the distillate, we do not have smoke here, it is fruity, honey and pleasantly sweet, but definitely not liqueur, very balanced sweetness.
