Wolfburn – The Kylver Series 3
This is the third release from Wolfburn’s Kylver Series – each one features a different from from the runic alphabet found on the Kylver stone (one of the earliest forms of alphabet discovered). Emblazoned upon this bottling is the rune meaning thurs, which meant “thorn” to some, while to others it meant “giant”. This limited edition expression shows off a bourbon-cask-lead flavour profile, with a whisper of Sherry sneaking in later on…
Nose: Soft waves of fresh vanilla pod and angelica give it plenty of vanilla notes early on. These are soon joined by waxy fruit and a hint of charred oak cutting through the sweetness.
Finish: Quite long and spicy, with cinnamon and nutmeg lingering on the finish.
