Another winning Single Malt from Wolfburn, served au natural at cask strength.

Thurso is the northernmost town on the British mainland. The first Wolfburn distillery was born on the site in the early 1800s. But by 1872, production had ceased. In 2011, Single Malt industry veterans Shane Fraser and Lain Kerr revived the namesake far northern spirit. They broke ground in May of 2012 and had the first completed buildings by September, with production starting the following year. They haven’t looked back — developing a range of Single Malts and periodic small batch special releases.

Probably the best thing about Wolfburn Langskip is its simplicity. 100% signature Wolfburn Single Malt aged entirely in first-fill Bourbon casks and bottled at near cask strength — 58% ABV — in its natural color and without chill-filtering. That’s it. Note the refreshing lack of marketing spic in that description. When you’ve got game, there is little need to embellish. And though this is an NAS Spirit, this powerful, spicy dram is silky smooth and fresh.

The “Langskip” were Viking long-ships with a single, central sail and banks of oars. It is the tradition ship you might think of transporting Viking warriors.

Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
