Wolfburn Aurora 70cl 46% vol. It is aged in three different types of casks, quarter cask, first-fill bourbon barrels and first-filled sherry barrels. An expression that is sweet with a spicy touch with memories of sherry in the form of raisins and currants accompanied by fresh barley, almonds and nuts.
The distillery is located in Thurso, the northernmost city of the British mainland, with records dating back to the Viking era, when it was under the dominion of the Orcadian Norse and was an important gateway to Scandinavia and the Northern Islands The area is bordered to the north and east by a spectacular coastal landscape and hosts colonies of seabirds of international importance.
The history of the current distillery is relatively short when compared to the most historic distilleries in Scotland that can date from 1779. Everything and be based on a distillery with a respectable trajectory (1822 - 1877) , the current Wolfburn begins to take shape in May 2011, when one of the people responsible for the Wolfburn team went to locate the site of the old distillery in Thurso, Caithness. After 150 years of abandonment, what he found was a barely perceptible pile of stones, but one thing remained intact from the almost disappeared distillery; Water. The cold, transparent waters that fed the distillery kept flowing as they always had, and if the Wolf Burn was still there, the whiskey could be too.
Wolfburn, everything and being, as we have already said, young man, manages to print to his whiskeys great personality and complexity, being the most important factors to take into account the calm process of distillation and the strict use of barrels, always of the highest quality and almost always of first filling. They also use barrels that have previously aged malt whiskey from Islay, giving the whiskey a layer of complexity in the form of distant notes of smoked peat.
Style: Single Malt.
Aging: 40% of whiskey ages in quarter cask of second filling, 40% in barrels of ex-bourbon of first filling and 20% in barrels of first filling of odorous.

Finish: Medium persistence, with memories of spiced sherry.
Aurora is the second expression of one of the youngest distilleries in Scotland, which already has followers thanks to its characteristic personality. A whiskey that is presumed young when you analyze the distillery but in no case shows such characteristics during the sensory analysis.
