Wolfburn's core bottlings of Northland and Aurora are soon to be bolstered with the new peated expression Morven. I forveien eller at Alchemists from Thurso presenterer vi med 'Wolfburn No.128' - their first small batch whiskey. Matured in smaller casks from a lightly peated spirit, No.128 provides us with our first proper look at a smoker Wolfburn.
The lighted peated spirit of 128 has been matured in slightly unusual 100 liters (close to the size of a Quarter Cask) first-fill ex-bourbon casks. Smaller casks usually mature at a faster rate given the higher level of contact between liquid and wood. Men der er potentielle nedsider til dette med en højere sats af fordampning af ånd og muligvis for meget træpåvirkning hvis venstre unchecked.
A recent cask sampling by Wolfburn found that a standard 1st fill ex-bourbon cask filled in 2013 had evaporated at a rate of about 2.5% a year and was sitting at 58% ABV (from an original fill strength of 63.5%), whereas an Octave (very small at around 46 liters) had evaporated at over 8% a year and the ABV had dropped markedly down to 49% in only 3 years.
