This sherry oak cask is matured in a combination of casks - 40% of this whisky was aged in second-fill quarter casks, 40% in first-fill ex-bourbon barrels and 20% in first-fill Oloroso Sherry hogsheads.

Name: Wolfburn Sherry Oak Single Malt Scotch Whisky Region: Highland, Scotland Color: Very light amber Nose: Very sherry like sensual, lots of spices, almost like Christmas baked cake, sherry, cherries nuts and sweet molasses. Palate: Raisins, Honey, Dried Fruits, and nice slow light burn. Obviously it has not spent too many years in the barrels, however, you can see the great flavor profile shine through, from a young spirit like this. I can tell that if it spent another 5-7 years in the barrel, the tannins would be rich and fuller of flavor. Finish: Long, spicy sherry, quite wonderful.

A buddy recently visited the distillery and said the newmake is delicious from moment one. Your review backs that up.
