Wolfburn Aurora

A late 2016 release from the Wolfburn distillery, matured in a combination of casks - 40% of this whisky was aged in second-fill quarter casks, 40% in first-fill ex-bourbon barrels and 20% in first-fill Oloroso Sherry hogsheads. An exciting release from the distillery.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Almonds and pecans, with a wave of sweet, sticky Sherry notes.

Palate Raisins, currants, more mixed nuts and fresh barley.

Finish Lingering Sherried spice on the finish.

Lovely Sherry
My 2nd wolfburn having been impressed my first time buy. I really looked forward to this one. And it did not disapoint. I will buy another bottle once I,ve finished this.

No peat?????
Sorry people but peat is not my thing! Bought the Wolfburn Aurora as it is not peated. Sorry but oh yes it is. It’s overwhelming peat on the nose and follows to the palate. Shame they cannot just be honest. It’s horrible.

A pleasant surprise
Didn’t know what to expect as I’d never tried anything from Wolfburn before. Decided to give it a go without any pre-read notes. I was blown away by the character and flavour packed into this considering it’s clearly young.

Papaya, and mango on nose, then sherry too. a medium finish and always controlled... mouthfeel doesnt have the oil, as you'd expect fron young whisky but this is FABULOUS>>> FABULOUS.

Good stuff
Nosing: Sherry, salinity, wooden, nutty vibes. Pecan and almond especially. Crisp cracker like a Ritz.
Taste: again crisp cracker (must be the barley) oaky bitterness in the front, dried cherries, fruit cake type dried fruits and bread.
Finish is oaky bitter, more of the bitter dried fruits, and a bit waxy walnut type mouthfeel.
A good intro to scotch and maybe a damn fine dram

Young, interesting but too expensive for the competition
I was looking forward to try this out and as soon as it was availible nearby, I picked up a bottle.

Nose - honey, sweet, ripe grapes, cherry, bubble gum and alcohol.
Taste - Strong spirit, fresh oak, oaky bitterness, a touch of honey.
Finish - Bitter oak, dark honey, oily mouthfeel, taste of metal, iron, medium/short finish.

it is definitely interesting but at the same time it is also obvious that it is young. It benefits from air A LOT. Once the bottle was 2/3, I left it sitting (cork on) for a week and then returned, comparing with the same bunch of whiskies as before and it was a lot better than before. Would be nice to see Wolfburn's offerings after 5-6 years. At the time they're doing everything right, the physics are holding them back but in few years this could e very good. would be nice to taste a bit more sherry in the actual taste and finish not just nose. And the price is too high, because at the moment it can't compete in the market.
