Wolfburn 7 Year Old 2015 Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal
Review by @markjedi1
Kudos to Belgian bottler Klubb23 who took the initiative to convince Wolfburn to release a bottling in favor of humanitarian actions for Ukraine. And although Wolfburn opened up the initiative further and bottled another 1550 bottles (with black capsule) for all markets, 112 bottles (with silver capsule) and separate label on the box were bottled for Belgium. The proceeds of the sale will go to the Solidarity Fund Ukraine 12-12. I know it's only a very small contribution that I make by buying a bottle, but something is always better than nothing.
Textbook example of a bourbon-aged Wolfburn with vanilla, malt sugars, granular notes, something of sheep's wool, a lot of licorice and a sigh of woodsmoke. Pears and gooseberries join in, as well as a lost apricot. Very accessible, a bit young without disturbing and pleasant.
Good body. First vanilla and gooseberries come along, then honey and licorice pass by, followed by woodsmoke and some wood spices. Very clean and it can mask his young age well (even if this is not necessary). This is very tasty, I have to say. And at this strength also eminently quaffable.
The finish is long, sweet, softly peppered and satisfying. Hopefully the peace negotiations will be too, but I'm not going to hold my breath...
Beautiful whisky, great initiative. I also give it an extra point, in the hope that it will sell even faster and that together we can still do something for the inhabitants of the country affected by Putin's greed and hunger for power.
