Wolfburn Aurora Sherry Cask Single Malt

Wolfburn Aurora Sherry Cask Single Malt

$119.00
$107.10

Description

The second expression from new northern Scotland distillery Wolfburn – the Aurora has been matured in both ex-bourbon and ex-Oloroso sherry casks.

Long fermentations and slow distillations have coaxed a lot of flavour out of their spirit at a very young age. The Aurora showcases more dried fruits and nuttiness than the first release single malt.

In distillery manager Shane Fraser’s own words: “On the nose you’ll sense a sherry sweetness accompanied by dried fruits and malt. On the palate there’s a warmth imparted from the sherry cask, augmented by autumn fruits and nutty flavours, with a hint of spice in the background.

Wolfburn is located in Thurso and was originally founded in 1821. Details are scarce but its production is believed to have been intermittent at best and likely non-existent during the period from 1850s-1870s. 

Reduced to ruins, a private company revealed plans to rebuilt the distillery in 2012 and spirit ran off the stills at Wolfburn once again in January 2013 after some 150-odd years of silence.

The rebirth of Wolfburn has been guided largely by Shane Fraser. Prior to Wolfburn he was the production manager at one of whisky’s most famous independent distilleries Glenfarclas. He also spent time at Oban and Royal Lochnagar and his name now adorns every Wolfburn bottle.

Also at the distillery is Iain Kerr, who’s previously worked at Glenlivet, Balmenach and Allt a Bhainne.
