limited release of 1450 bottles

Packaging: In original box
Volume on Label: 70cl

Kylver#2 is created from three different casks: a second-fill 500 litre ex-Oloroso sherry butt, and two 200 litre ex-bourbon barrels. The Oloroso sherry butt was found to be highly active and despite being second fill, had achieved a level of maturity normally expected from eight to ten years of laying down. Wolfburn speculate that the butt was probably only briefly used on its inital fill for a short finishing period, therefore leaving the cask still very fresh, but eitherway finding a fully mature cask after just four years is unusual. Given the barrel sizes used, this unexpected sherry butt therefore forms the heart of Kylver#2.

Nose: Both pineapple and coconut come across stongly. Ginger spicing takes in dried fruits and a hint of earthiness and soil. Resting moves the aroma away from tropically-led notes towards pear drop sweets.

Taste: Controlled and restrained sherry underpins a more herbaceous delivery which is both fresh and sappy. Dried figs and very well balanced vanilla. The idiosyncratic Wolfburn spirit is discernible throughout and never lost amongst flavours which grow in complexity in the glass over time.

Finish: Long, warming and emphasising ginger and oak spices.

Takes the sherry chromosomes of Wolfburn Aurora and uses a fortuitous butt to sequence a different type of release which is even more impressive. On the one hand this is tremendously drinkable, on the other its a dram to sit, rest and allow to develop further - such is the great balance of this whisky. Whilst Wolfburn once again effortlessly fill their own shoes, you can leave me with the Kylver and I'll fill my boots.
