Wolfburn (of Thurso) has recently wrested the title of Scotland's most northerly mainland distillery from Old Pulteney (the Wick-based maritime malt masters). Having only gained approval for the new distillery (which lies a short distance from the old one, but draws its water from the same "Wolf Burn") in 2012, the owners managed to produce the first spirit in early 2013.
This is Wolfburn's first small batch limited release. Matured in small 100 litre casks and with a lightly peated spirit, No.128 will give us our first insight into Wolfburn's smokier whisky.
Cask Type: Bourbon
46% ABV / 70cl
