Wolfburn Northland

Becoming Scotland's northernmost mainland whisky producing distillery when it released its first single malt in March 2016, Wolfburn is built just 350m away from the ruins of the 19th century distillery from which it takes its name. With long fermentation, slow manual distillation and maturation taking place at least partly in quarter casks that previously held peated whisky from Islay, this is a release we've eagerly anticipated!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Orchard fruits, apple pie, a fresh maltiness, almonds, magnolia and a suggestion of smoke

Palate Honey Nut Clusters breakfast cereal, sweet spices, chocolate croissant, more honey towards the end, and a subtle earthy peatiness.

Finish Long and fresh, with even more rich honey notes

Overall A deliciously complex single malt from one of Scotland’s newer distilleries - they are hitting it out of the park!

Reviews for Wolfburn Northland Single Malt
4.3/5 stars in my opinion
It shows quality, from its presentation to the moment you taste it. It is NAS, and definitely younger whisky, but it still has certain level of complexity and solid ABV to make up. Nose: honey, malt and some peat. Palate: Custard, smoke and raisins. Finish: spicy, smoky and sweet. Good stuff, and another reason why Wolfburn is becoming popular.

What a pleasant surprise!
When I saw NCF, NC and 46% ABV I knew it couldn't be bad. Great whisky (even for a NAS). I'm getting another bottle and I'm looking forward to try the other expresions. Highly recommended.

Very good
I bought a botlte of Wolfburn Small Patch 128 some months ago and I liked it. Then I bought a bottle of Northland and it's even better. Nose is very fruity and palette is very wide. There's almonds, nuts and oak. Finish is long. 46% abv is bit high and a few drops of water is recommended. If you liked any other Wolfburn, you definately should try Northland, you'll like it. (R)

Single malt, not watered down, not too sweet and delicious smokey peat from start to finsih.
Positives, single malt, natural color, 46% abv , not too sweet. Subtle, delicious smokey peat from start to finish. Very enjoyable dram made by a craft, not mass produced distiller. I bought this on sale for $30 U.S. and at this price it is a steal.

Very nice but a little uninspiring
Young but thats fine. Light, slightly peaty, but missing the seaweed that I love so much, nevertheless its very drinksble.

Cannot wait for Canadian distribution
My boys while in Thurso ordered a cask to be opened in 16 years I sincerely hope your products come to Canada sooner

A light trail of smoke from nose to mouth to finish
you can smell and taste the peat influence of the islay casks; im betting on laphroaig.
A light trail of smoke from nose to mouth to finish but not too much and non smoke lovers will I think not be upset.
Honeyed, lightly spiced and perhaps nutty.
I'm still not overly convinced with it but it's certainly very drinkable. Doubt I'd buy this, and its the first Wolfburn Ive said that about.

Smooth and smokey.
If you like peaty and smoky single malts this is one to try. I look forward to trying it aged. Very smooth for a bairn with floral, fruity and smooth subtle smoky peat finish. I will enjoy this one!
