    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.

    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

  10. 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.
