The result of an assemblage composed of 40% second-fill quarter casks, 40% first-fill ex-bourbon barrels and 20% first-fill Oloroso Sherry hogsheads.
The same almonds found in the Northland, white flowers and vanilla bean, green grapes, pears, malted cereals, dried fruit and very distant sherry, caramel. The nose is once again agricultural, a little greenish in the inspired colors, but rounder than the first issue of this distillery. The texture on the palate is really good, a little mineral and ashy too, red apples, fruit marmalade, peppery dried fruits supported and accompanied by a diffused smoke of organic peat. Finale of medium length, mix of dried fruit and citrus fruits with a peppered and smoked back and a bit of sea salt.
Another Wolfburn a little too young, but promising. Nose: Ripe fruit, malt, a touch of caramel and a little wood. Palate: Spicy wood, some ripe fruit and caramel. The whole looks rather young. Final: Medium length, marked by alcohol.
Nose: Green grape, vanilla and white sugar. Grilled malt, caramel and wine. Beautiful touches scattered with oak. Fresh grass, youthful wind. Palate: Wood, red fruits, spices, barley and grass. Caramel and vanilla, touch of sherry. The youth of all the elements gives a general acidity to the whole which is more or less desired. Finish: Rather short, spicy and woody, some hints of sherry cask, although the youth and the watery texture leave us a less good impression. Balance: Aging, Aging, Aging. This is missing. The backbone is not bad, but it takes patience. Nowadays the distilleries absolutely want to fill the demand, but at what price?
