Wolfburn Morven - Sample 5 cl
Wolfburn launched a new whisky in the form of the Morven. This is a lightly peated whisky coming in at around 10ppm, is bottled at a robust 46% ABV and launches nationally on 28th September 2017. We already taste it on The Potstill Festival 2017 by Van Wees.
The peat works extremely well within the context of this young whisky. It’s a very easy drinking dram with just enough coastal peat to leave you pouring another without realising.
Colour: almost devoid of colour, just a splash of honey
Nose: a rather gentle salted caramel is at the forefront. The freshness of pine nuts and an aromatic baked apple is followed by a chalky mineral aspect. Highland heather and the noticeable vegetative decay of peat round off a decent presentation.
Taste: the peat is here but doesn’t dominate proceedings and really only comes into its own on the lingering finish. Prior to this the peat offers sweetness, yes there’s vanilla but the balance is impressive. More of the baked apple comes through, then noticeable cask char, wisp of smoke and a light toffee, before we’re back to the fruit with pear drops.
