Wolfburn No.270 Small Batch Release Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

Highlands, SCOTLAND
$140.00 Bottle
  • ABV 46%

As with Wolfburn's No.128, this small-batch offering has been matured in 100-litre first-fill bourbon casks. However, this time, the spirit is unpeated, allowing the vanillins and sweetness of the bourbon cask to come to the fore. 6000 bottles. Non chill filtered.

Other reviews... No. 128 was excellent (WF86) and this has more than double the figures (270 vs. 128!), so we’re expecting much… (someone will have to explain all this in details to you, S.) Colour: straw. Nose: some light smoke this time, gravel, soot, muddy waters, vase water, whelks, beach sand… You see… Some fruity varnish as well. Mouth: we’ve known Coal Ilas… Smoked pineapples and pears, just a wee-wee acetone-y touch, a blend of fruit syrup with brine, and the thinnest slice of gherkin. Finish: long, almost perfect, just a wee tad ‘superficial’. As if the 128 was a tad more profound, but then I haven’t got that one on the table. Comments: still very impressive. Now they could do it like Kilchoman, give us the ages, even if the numbers are low. We don’t care about numbers or ages, we care about transparency. Whatever, love Wolfburn anyway. 84 points - whisky-fun.com

...Nose: Fresh and lightly fruity; the aroma of tinned pears and apple combined with the sweet dustiness of a woollen mill and a light vegetal note behind. Has this mix of sweetness which flirts with oiliness, but then bursts into fragrant white fruit blossom. Water brings out a more obviously youthful side, but there’s real class here. Palate: Direct, with quite fleshy fruit – those apples and pears with added ripe melon, some sweet mash, while the florals are more bluebell-like. The mid-palate remains sweet and well-balanced. Again only on the back-palate (and with water) do you get the sense of its age. Finish: Jersey ice cream. - Dave Broom, scotchwhisky.com
