Fettercairn 12 Year Old
One of four new Fettercairn expressions to be launched in August 2018, the Fettercairn 12 Year Old was intended to embody the distillery’s floral and exotic fruit-driven character. It was matured in American oak ex-Bourbon casks and bottled at 40% ABV.
Nose: Refreshing nectarine, white flowers and milk chocolate emerge initially. Black toffee and subtle roasted coffee provide darker notes underneath
Palate: Tropical fruit and sticky Jamaican ginger cake add a sweet and spicy depth which a flicker of bitter herbs and vanilla complement.
Finish: Orchard fruits and soft spices linger.
What some of our whisky enthusiast friends have said about Fettercairn 12 Year Old
Quote 1 “A friend recommended this to me, raving about tropical fruit notes like melon and pineapple. I was doubtful but gave it a go. Absolutely loved it, and pineapple is spot-on as a descriptor. Smooth and light and fruity whisky. I thought it got even better with a small splash of water. I’ll definitely be buying this again.”
