Fettercairn 16 Year Old – 2nd Release: 2021
This is the Fettercairn Distillery’s second release of its 16 year old single malt Scotch whisky, and this time, the team has gone for a distinctly sherried styling. Whisky matured and finished in three different types of sherry casks has been used for this expression, including first-fill Oloroso, refill Oloroso, and first-fill Palo Cortado sherry butts. The complex sherried notes work wonderfully with Fettercairn’s top-quality spirit, resulting in a whisky that ought to really impress.
Nose: Orange oils, dried cherries and sugared almonds, cedar.
Palate: More dried fruit (with sultanas and prunes this time), followed by oily walnuts and a hint of dark chocolate.
Finish: Salted caramel, aromatic oak, a hint of coffee.
