    Nose: young sharpyness sticks above all the other notes, very little peat is present in the nose, a little bit salty but everything is overwhelmed with the young sharpyness.

    Taste: young malt with light peat. A little bit of spice on the side.

    Finish: even the finish doesnt last that long.

    Conclussion: a dissapointing whisky, definitlly misses ageing.

    The northernmost distillery in Scotland (on the mainland). The first drop of distillate flowed from the alembics on January 25, 2013. Morven is the only smoky version, made from ordered barley malt, 10 ppm thick, is about 4.5 years old. Production of the Morven version takes place only for 6 weeks a year. Matures in barrels first and second fill Bourbon, as well as brand new, fresh quarter caskach 125 l (outside Islay).
    Very balanced. Lovely whisky in budget price

    The Wolfburn Morven is named after the highest mountain in the northern Highlands.
    For "Morven" only slightly turfed malt is used and so it differs clearly from Wolfburn "Northland" and "Aurora", which are produced from undetached malt. It is exciting that despite the malt specification of only 10 ppm, the peat leaves intense traces and occurs much more clearly than one would expect.

  10. markjedi1 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Morven is okay, but not more than that (the No 128, considered to be the precursor to this release, is much better). Around 60 EUR.
    • Nose
      The nose is surprisingly soft (especially after the No 128) and offers up a mild trace of smoke and some young apples and pears. Quite mineral (chalk!) and clearly young. That does not have to be a problem, but this Wolfburn is not as intriguing on the nose. A salty edge brings us to a wild coast. Salted caramel and pine nuts with some floral accents.
    • Taste
      It is quite fresh and young on the palate. Lime juice with pepper, vanilla and baked apples. Pear drops. The peat is very clear, but on the side, so not really integrated. Barley sugars, toasted oak and again quite some floral elements, so it cannot hide its young age. It does not need to, surely, but this does taste very young indeed.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long with loads of ginger. It starts sweet, then turns bitter to finally fade in a big screen of smoke.
