As little as I know about Craigellachie (my last review), I know even less about Fettercairn. I this may be the first time I’ve tasted it. With that in mind, I will not allow my impression of this to bias me towards trying an OB in the future.

This expression is reviewed in my usual manner in a Highland whisky glass, allowing it to settle after which I take my nosing and tasting notes, followed by the addition of a few drops of water, waiting, then nosing and tasting.

Nose: 21/25

Rich, baking spices. Something sweet and something savoury. Green apple in the background. Decent nose.

Taste: 19/25

Slightly spirity. The overwhelming flavour is vegetal. Coffee. Not really sure what is supposed to be going on here. Water dampens the vegetal notes a little. But it is no better.

Finish: 20/25

Astringent on the finish. Slightly peppery.

Balance: 18/25

The nose and the palate do not match. The flavour is unbalanced.

Score: 78/100

As I move through the samples in this set, I begin to lose hope….

As I mentioned above, Fettercairn may produce some good stuff, but it did not find its way into this batch.
