Wolfburn MORVEN - 46% - 700ml
PRODUCT TYPE: Whisky
Wolfburn, Scotland's northernmost mainland distillery, released its first single malt in 2016, and they have been making waves ever since. This award-winning whisky is made in a very traditional way with a long fermentation and slow distillation, while during maturation, the casks are stacked no more than 3 barrels high. Non-chill filtered with no added colouring, the distillery bottles and labels everything by hand all by themselves. The Morven uses lighty-peated malted barley, which gives the liquid a gentle peat and smoke, faint but present. Notes of fresh apple and white grape are balanced by the mineral qualities of the peat. On the palate, the malt comes ahead of the soft smoke, with peppered oak and caramelized fruit towards the end. The finish is sweet, with some ginger bread lingering. Clean and delicate. A great whisky for those who are new to Scotch and peat.
