Wolfburn Northland and Aurora Single Malt Scotch Whisky Reviews

Our “round-the-world journey without leaving the relative discomfort of The Murder Table” continues as we head to the northernmost distillery on the Scottish mainland for a taste of four very different Single Malt Scotch Whiskies from the Wolfburn Distillery. This is part one of a two part tasting, because having our dear viewers listen to us talk about four whiskies in a row just seemed like way too much for anyone to bear.

During this tasting, we’ll be discussing Wolfburn’s Northland and Aurora expressions. Here’s a bit more information about them from the Wolfburn website:

Northland: The smooth and warming flavours present in Northland come from the unhurried way in which the spirit is made, and from the maturation, which takes place in American oak quarter casks. Matured and bottled on site, Northland represents the first chapter in the history of Wolfburn.

Aurora; This beautiful sherried whisky is made from spirit laid down in a combination of ex-bourbon and Oloroso sherry casks. Benefitting from long fermentation and slow, gentle distillation, the spirit is laid down on site in our purpose-built warehouses. At the end of the maturation process the casks are brought together to create an exceptionally smooth and perfectly balanced dram.

Both are non chill-filtered @ 46% ABV.

It’s been a while since we had anything from the Wolfburn Distillery, but from what we recall, first impressions of samples tasted a few years ago left us with fond memories, so our expectations during this tasting were quite high.
