DESCRIPTION
  • Named after the crystal clear waters that feed the distillery (Burn is the Scottish word for stream), Wolfburn is the northern-most distillery on the Scottish mainland, located in Thurso, Caithness. Built on the same site as the original Wolfburn Distillery, which was operating in the 1820s, the distillery went back on spirit in 2013. Headed up by Shane Fraser of Glenfarclas fame, and Iain Kerr from Glenlivet, Wolfburn is an exciting new addition into the Scotch malt whisky landscape.

    The Morven whisky is a lightly peated expression from Wolfburn, and their latest offering, being released only last year, 2017. Adding a peated style to their core range was important for distillery manager Shane Fraser, as he says, 'The original 19th Century Wolfburn Distillery was fired by peat. So for us, producing a peated whisky is a reflection of history. The link with our heritage is hugely important – our whisky is all made by hand in the traditional way, with a focus on quality throughout the entire production process.'

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    This lightly peated whisky (around 10ppm) is made from malted barley infused with smoke during the drying process. The flavour imparted by the smoke is a reflection of Wolfburn’s history – the original 19th Century distillery was largely fired by peat. Gentle distillation is followed by maturation in our purpose-built warehouses. The result is a beautifully smooth and rounded whisky. Non chill-filtered. Matured in both ex-bourbon barrels and quarter casks.  

    TASTING NOTES

    Initially smoky with hints of fruit and fresh sea air, accompanied by vanilla and oak woodshavings and gentle salted caramel. On the palate, floral notes abound, followed by raisins and light spices. Malty flavours open up on the palate, with soft honey sweetness at the finish.
