But I'm also happy if I do not have to drink such a bottle every day. It is best as a supplement to well-balanced, balanced malts. A colorful swab in the monotony of the normal, so to speak. Also my description seems to my reviews "good" and "fun" very strange. Because I spontaneously had the following impression: "A damp coarse cleaning rag, previously stored in a musty, cold basement, with which one just wiped down a dropped cream cheese and then this rag into an old wooden vat filled with a pound of brown cane sugar, a pint of pear juice and a bottle of turpentine , then dipped it all in the wooden tub again thoroughly thoroughly. That came to my mind.
A wonderfully perverse whisky, very young, quite unreasonable and actually not really drinkable for off-beat snobs and connoisseurs. Nevertheless, the spirit reveals in my opinion that at Wolfburn right experts are at work. People who understand their craft so well that in a few years they will make a fine addition to the scene. I'm almost sure.
Because despite the clear immature turpentine notes missing pronounced metallic notes and it is then noticeable on the second, thorough review of the first impression that now there are hints of wood and a fine, restrained spiciness, but lacking any sharpness. So something must be basically a very successful distillate.
And although the spirit has a different character, I remembered Kilchoman about 5 years ago, when I came into contact with the 2012 Machir Bay for the first time around 2013. Even if the comparison already had more maturity and the klichoman spirit is quite different.
Of course, around 42-44 euros are actually too expensive for this whisky, which also does not offer much more than a roughly similar (and also slightly too bad rated) Glen Grant Majors' reserve, which it was for under 20 euros. Of course, this cheap bottling can not keep up with the great in my eyes "128er" Wolfburn. But she does not have to. For all lovers of younger whisky or those who want to feel the evolution of a spirit in the maturing process for the price in the current market situation quite a recommendation. Because with a very slightly smoky and basically mild-fruity whisky, no master distiller can perform better after just 3 years of maturity for the price.
