This is my first Fettercairn so its quite exciting. I love to try new Whiskies. The distillery is owned by Mackay & White which in turn is owned by Indian businessman Vijay Mallaya. The group also includes Jura and Dalmore so Fettercairn is in good company.
Matured in bourbon barrel (419) for 18 yrs this Highland Single Malt is a cask strength monster. Sold by Signatory it was bottled distilled March '95 and bottled October '13.
Golden straw in the glass with long legs. The nose delivers vanilla, oak, grass, vegetation, honey and pears. Rich and smooth, creamy yet big. Spiced oak, green apples, grassy, honey and green grape skin
The finish is drying, spiced and slightly bitter.
It is another worthy dram that is one for tasting session rather than one to drink in good company.
