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.

Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
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).
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
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.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
