First Batch First Release!

Serge Valentin (85)

The very first official whisky by Thurso's Wolfburn Distillery! Some trustworthy sources say they've bottled no less than 62.000 bottles of this new baby, that'll be out a little later this month. It's a 3 years old, obviously. We already tried a 20 month old last year, and found it good. Colour: white wine. Nose: Very fresh, with white asparagus and green apples (not the other way 'round), then a welcome touch of ink, 'new magazine', a smidgen of curry and caraway, and damp chalk. That's all very nice, it seems that there's some texture. That was the case with the 20 mo, but that one was ex-Islay cask. No roughness in this genuine whisky. Mouth: there's an unexpected smokiness in the arrival, some branches and grass, a touch of blond tobacco, a little pepper, traces of soot, and again, maybe, some sweet white asparagus (which I simply adore). At the fruit department, rather plums than pears. Ripe greengages, I'd say. Very nice texture, slightly oily. Finish: medium, fresh, with fresh almonds and more greengages. Rather pink grapefruits in the aftertaste. Comments: thank you Alexander aus Aarau in der Schweiz! I find this little baby extremely good, and am so pleased that they didn't decide to bury it under various heavy oaks and wines. The natural ones will win! Worth a very high score in my book, despite its very young age
