Fettercairn 40 Year Old
70cl, 40% abv
An earnest 40 year old for the relaunched Fettercairn single malt with only 463 bottles being produced. Aged in Apostoles palo cortado sherry casks, this 1969 expression has recently been repackaged in a very contemporary outfit.
Nose: Chocolate, dried apricot and musty orange. Hints of cocoa, espresso, nutmeg and poached fruits.
Palate: Good, deep body. Hints of dark fruits, honey, caraway, chocolate oranges, a tobacco sweetness, peppered malt.
Finish: Long, oaky and bittersweet with dark chocolate and cedar-wood.
