Wolfburn Batch No.128
70cl / 46% abv
This small batch release from the Wolfburn distillery in Thurso, Caithness, is a lightly peated expression, matured in slightly unusual 100 litre first-fill ex-bourbon casks. Named for the location the casks were stored – warehouse No.1, stow number 28 – only 6,000 bottles of Batch No.128 were released.
Nose: tobacco smoke and lemon peels, with toffee, honey, vanilla and warming peat smoke.
Palate: sweet honey and apples to the fore, with melon, vanilla, and a light smoke developing over time.
Finish: medium with an oak influence from the smaller casks.
