    Conclusion and pictures on: https://tomtrinkt.de
    • Nose
      The new Wolfburn starts surprisingly multifaceted. Plenty of bright fruits, vanilla and light smoke are pouring out of my glass. The alcohol content of 46% is very well involved - I perceive neither a burning nor stinging in the nose. Floral hints, sweet honey, crème brûlée, plenty of caramel, bright fruits, including apricots, fresh apples and a hint of peach dominate my first impressions. The background is always a pleasant smoke. At the very far away, I already register spicy hints of oak. The basic character is pleasantly light, but without being powerless, predominantly fruity-fresh and balanced. The unusually small Bourbon barrels have done a great job so far!
    • Taste
      With a silky soft texture, the Wolfburn dresses the mouth. The alcohol content of 46% ensures a powerful start. At the tip of the tongue a slight tingle (pepperiness) develops at short notice, before an intense sweetness floods the palate. Vanilla, caramel, honey, juicy apples, apricots, oranges as well as hints of exotic fruits (melon & peach) dominate on the fruity-sweet side. Always in the background are spicy oak notes, hints of milk chocolate and the beautiful smoky note.
    • Finish
      Medium long and sweet smoky. The sweet and fruity notes rear one last time before the spicy notes of oak and the slight smokiness noticeably pick up speed. It is noticeably drier on the palate.

  2. ASWhisky scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    a rough and raw young whisky, quite exciting, let's see where the journey leads to Nose, mouth and finish already have tension Ranking: 1. mouth, 2, finish, 3. nose
    • Nose
      warm spicy malt behind smoky cool menthol note, tar Something is too much for me here, is it the menthol or again this intensely spicy malt note with the beer feeling? The nose looks a bit slanted, but could well be liked
    • Taste
      Cool on, again smooth and malty tingling, a cool Waldmeisternote in the background is superimposed by menthol, very tingling, malty, beer feeling, slightly smoking on the palate and throat, floral malty notes with slight Fruchtanklängen, behind some oak and bitter grapefruit I like his mouth better than the nose, which change and already have a certain tension
    • Finish
      long intense Malt, acid tingling, slightly bitter, slightly smoking from the throat

  3. markjedi1 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Impressive release, actually, considering the young age. Recommended. This is actually the precursor to the Wolfburn Morven.
    • Nose
      Oh, this nose is actually quite good. Fresh and lively with loads of vanilla, breakfast pastry and some smoke. Underneath a nice hint of pipe tobacco, lime juice, young apples and heathery flowers. Quite pleasant and a serious step up from the Aurora that I recently tasted.
    • Taste
      It is wonderfully oily and shows lots of earthy notes, followed by lemon pie, honey, all kinds of grasses and dried apricots. Aniseed? The earth is dominant, but quite charming. It gives him some matures that nicely masks the young age. Well done.
    • Finish
      In the long finish, it becomes clear that this is a peaty malt – despite only 10ppm – making it hard for the fruit to manifest itself once more. But the pink grapefruit and lime are unmistakable. Quite spicy too.

  6. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Starts wonderfully aromatic and surprisingly ripe for its youthfulness. First, sweet fruitiness after fall. Orchard in early autumn ?, salt, soft peat, raw wool and nuts. Really well put together. Over time, cocoa and lightly baked biscuits follow.
    • Taste
      Full and well balanced. Polished oak, a bit dirty after sweeping or even invaded earth ?, soft peat, again some fall and salt. Later also sugary hints but also waxed canvas and old dinghy?
    • Finish
      Medium length, roasted nuts, light smoke and subtle notes of notes.

  7. Shane_IL scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    I quite enjoyed this one though it did feel a little weak on the palate which was unfortunate, but much potential here for the distillery.Tasted blind as part of the 2017 Usquebaugh Society BTC
    • Nose
      Quite malty. Behind that grass and quite a musty smell, like dunnage and old books. Marzipan. Oranges. Honey. Anise. Wintergreen.Some boiled sweets and wine gums too.
    • Taste
      Watery palate. Interesting peat character here. There's also some bitter wood and dried apples, some salt, not much above that.
    • Finish
      The flavourful part is short, light smoke and bitter wood. Dry feeling and slight warmth lingers.

    I liked the nose. The finish was almost non-existing. Tasted a sample on day two of the US Blind Tasting Competition 2017. My guess was an Old Pulteney 10-yo @ 46%
    • Nose
      Oranges, ripe red fruit, nuts, rhubarb, figs, peach, some salt, some cigar tobacco
    • Taste
      Sweet, ripe red fruit, figs, dark sugar, some cigar tobacco again
    • Finish
      Short. Not bitter, not drying. Ripe red fruit die off quickly

  10. thijs100 scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    I can't say I found this to be an exceptional whisky. To me it lacked a certain balance, especially on the nose. I don't know, just not exactly for me.
    • Nose
      Starting off on sweet notes of cookie dough and merengue, but quickly turns into a strange mix of sour cherries, wet rope and some blue cheese even. The tiniest sliver of smoke.
    • Taste
      A wonderful, soft smokiness that I barely registered on the nose. Some subtle spices, like cloves and cinnamon, and also a gentle nutiness and light notes of milk chocolate. However, the sourness does also appear on the palate somewhat.
    • Finish
      Lingering spices, a whiff of smoke. Medium in length.
