Wolfburn steps out of the “Highland” box and delivers a lightly peated Single Malt.

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.

Wolfburn is a Highland distillery with all that this entails — including the fruit forward style of Whisky-making. But the good people at Wolfburn also like to think a bit outside the box. So they released Wolfburn Morven in 2017 — a lightly peated version of their signature Highland Single Malt. Make no mistake. This is NOT an Islay peated phenol smack in the face. This is a well-crafted, fruit-forward Highland Single Malt with a light peat smoke used to dry the malted barley. It’s a rebels Single Malt with zero additives, no chill-filtering, and it’s bottled at a perfect 46% ABV.

Smartass corner:
“Morven” can refer to several things. There are three mountains with that name in Scotland. But in the case of Wolfburn Single Malt, it likely refers to a peninsula in the far northwestern Highlands.

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).

Cameron
Cameron,
Not something that I would normally go for but as part of the testing box, more than worth the adventure. Unfortunately not something I would buy in the bottle as it was just too smoky for me. First sip was smoky without much else but flavour profile progressed with each sip thereafter. Not for those who are opposed to a slightly sharp finish.

Martin,
Initial nosing reveals a sweet smoke with a dash of peat. A bit of apricot, dried fruit and some grape (soda) added to to the smell as well. There is an initial push of smoke but once it rolls around in your mouth there is a blend of sweet flavors. After the third or fourth sip you will find that you will taste more of the sweet oatmeal cookie with some fruit followed by the smoke. The smoke lingers and it has a long flavor. I’m not a smoke fan at all, but I certainly enjoyed this.

Antti,
It is a is a very good, complex, Single Malt Scotch Whisky that has an aromatic birth; while a rich & nutty life leads to a rich & spicy death with hints of shortbread, ginger, dried fruits & baking spices.

Mirosław,
I wouldn't consider it as very peaty, however indeed it gives a strong accent and has mostly smoky profile.

Giulio,
Very peaty, opens up a little with water but retains a strong smoky profile. The peat covers most other flavors but if you like smoke it's a pleasant finish
