Fettercairn 30 Year Old
70cl, 43.3% abv
A 30 year old bottling for the latest reincarnation of Fettercairn. This 1978 vintage joins the groundswell that this delightful distillery is experiencing. It was distilled in 1978 and has a lot of thick Oloroso Sherry notes coming through. It's terrific stuff, and it is superbly presented.
Nose: Dried herbs, some toffee apple and a touch of beeswax. Cedar and butterscotch.
Palate: Pine resin, beeswax and barley malt. Spiciness from cinnamon, roasted oak.
Finish: Good length with pine resinous notes.
