Wolfburn Aurora Whisky 700ml
Country: Scotch Whisky
Region: Highland Whisky
Aurora is the second expression to come out of the Wolfburn distillery, founded in 2013 in the sea-side village of Thurso at the very northern edges of mainland Scotland. This new release is matured in a mixture of both American oak and ex-sherry casks, the latter bringing more nutty, orchard fruity flavours to the whisky. The malty, sea-side maritime flavour that comes from slow fermentation and oceanic maturing is there on the nose and finish. A brilliant new release from Wolfburn.
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.
