The sixth in Wolfburn’s small-batch series, Batch 318 comes from a combination of lightly-peated spirit, matured for seven years in first-fill Oloroso sherry butts, combined with spirit matured for seven years in first-fill Bourbon barrels. Just 4,800 bottles in total. A sweet, rounded, sumptuous whisky with a peerless depth of flavour
ON THE NOSE
On the nose, figs and apricots mix with soft tones of peat smoke. There’s a hint of vanilla and oak present too.
ON THE PALATE
On the palate the depth of flavour is tremendous. Honey-laced porridge meets stewed apples and
sultanas. The peat brings with it a touch of heat, while soft oak spices – cinnamon and cloves and ginger – are also present, all overlaid by a wonderful sherry sweetness.
The finish does not disappoint; dried fruit and caramel flavours remain to the end and are neatly overlaid with hints of lingering peat smoke
