Notes by Whiskyfun (Serge Valentin)
No. 128 was excellent (WF86) and this has more than double the figures (270 vs. 128!), so we're expecting much? (someone will have to explain all this in details to you, S.) Colour: straw. Nose: some light smoke this time, gravel, soot, muddy waters, vase water, whelks, beach sand? You see? Some fruity varnish as well. Mouth: we've known Coal Ilas? Smoked pineapples and pears, just a wee-wee acetone-y touch, a blend of fruit syrup with brine, and the thinnest slice of gherkin. Finish: long, almost perfect, just a wee tad 'superficial'. As if the 128 was a tad more profound, but then I haven't got that one on the table. Comments: still very impressive. Now they could do it like Kilchoman, give us the ages, even if the numbers are low. We don't care about numbers or ages, we care about transparency. Whatever, love Wolfburn anyway.
