I recently had the opportunity to taste a malt from one of Scotland's newest distilleries, Wolfburn. Wolfburn Distillery is located in the vicinity of Thurso in the northern region of the county of Caithness. It is, in fact, the northernmost mainland distillery in all of Scotland, and has been producing spirit since 2013. Some four years on, its first whiskies are now hitting the marketplace. Shane Fraser, the enterprise's Distillery Manager, has years of experience in the industry, having held positions at Royal Lochnagar, Oban and Glenfarclas.

My notes on an early release reveal a malt whisky well worth taking note of...

46%ABV. No chill filtration or artificial colouring employed. Very clean palate delivery, led by notes of pears, apples, raw almonds and lime leaves. A faint touch of ethanol doesn't manage to disrupt the overall pleasant nature of the spirit. Good. I'm now certainly looking forward to longer-aged editions from this Caithness distillery.
