Wolfburn Single Malt Review

This is the inaugural release from the Wolfburn distillery that was bottled in March 2016. It’s 3 years old and bottled at 46% ABV.

Nose: Heavy putty and pastry dough notes up front turning floral as new make notes come flooding in – subtle citrus and peach notes in background.

Palate: New make notes very heavy here with raw grains and acetone – still maintains the floral/doughy characteristics from the nose.

Finish: Very short and bland – gone in a flash.

Rating: 68/100 – Way too young and uninteresting at this point – there are some interesting qualities there that I’d like to see develop with more aging, but for now it’s more of a curiosity then something I’d buy a bottle of to enjoy.

Value for the money: These retail a little north of $50 which is overpriced given the quality – not sure I’d buy this at any price. If anything, try it at a bar if you’re curious.

  1. You’re just plain wrong on this one. Yes it is practically new make but the distillery character shines through. It is a very nice dram foreshadowing great things in the future.
