Wolfburn Highland Whisky Festival 2020
9 bottles available in Singapore. 550 bottles released globally.
46% ABV, 700 ml
Early in 2020, Wolfburn agreed to take part in this year’s Highland Whisky Festival, which was scheduled for May. A special bottling was planned – and then coronavirus came along and scuppered the plans for the festival. But by the time the lockdown started, production of the special bottles had already begun. On the basis that many of use could use a chuckle during these trying times, we decided to press ahead with the “cancelled” special release – as you can see from the label! Crafted from spirit matured for seven years in quarter casks, it’s a lovely wee drop of whisky, and we hope it brings a smile to your face too!
ON THE NOSE – Fresh spring aromas abound: cut grass meets summer meadows, with traces of baked apple and sultanas.
ON THE PALATE – The freshness continues, but now melded with a subtle sweetness reminiscent of ripe fruit. Plums and pears are both here, and there’s a lovely hint of heather honey.
THE FINISH – Fruit flavours fade away, while gentle sweet tones remain to the very end. The final impression is a gentle hint of caramel and butterscotch. Truly scrumptious.
