On the nose, Wolfburn Love Potion reveals a tantalising composition of fragrances. An abundance of vanilla meets the sweet scent of grape sugar, reminiscent of a sumptuous gift basket full of fruit. These flavours invite you to linger and arouse curiosity about what is yet to come.


The flavour of this Scotch is just as rich as the aroma. A clear woody note characterises the first impression, followed by flavours of pear and quince. The sticky sweetness of the whisky is accompanied by a subtle maltiness that gives it depth. Despite its youthfulness, this single malt is pleasant to drink.


The finish of the Love Potion is medium-long and leaves a hint of tannins and spice on the tongue. Vanilla and white pepper round off the flavour experience and leave a warm, spicy aftertaste.


The Wolfburn Love Potion is like a sugar basket full of fruit in a bottle. Its pleasant woody flavour paired with a spicy kick makes it an exciting single malt. Although it may seem a little young, it is still easy to drink. However, it lacks complexity and depth. Plus points as always for the natural colour and the fact that it is not chill-filtered.
