 香りはアルコール感とややグレープフルーツの皮の香り、そして最も強く主張してくるのはクッキー。これは味わいにも強く見て取れます。口に含むと上顎が心地の良い(熱すぎない)温かさに包まれます。フェッターケアンのハウススタイルでもあるナッツ(このボトルの場合はアーモンドとクルミ)を素直に感じることができ、他にも、温めて湯気のたったミルク、チョコレート、冬に食べるミカン、スパイスも感じます。舌を優しく包む粘性のようなものは、クッキーを食べたときに感じるあのオイリーさです。飲んでいて気持ちがホッとする感じは、冬の寒い日にココアを飲んだ時に似ています。

 甘さとアルコール感とスパイシーさ、この三つが絶妙な(均等な)バランスを持っていて、余韻は、その全てが均一に同時進行で、何も損なわれること無く、一定で、ゆっくりとした速度で続きます。これは見事です。

 堪能していて頭に浮かぶ景色は、稲刈りを終えた田んぼの、秋の晴れた昼下がりです。陽にあたった温かい藁と、土の香り、頭に浮かぶ景色は地元会津の風景です。ここでもホッとする気持ちにさせてくれます。このボトルを季節に例えるなら、秋から冬にかけてでしょう。ちょっと切なくなる季節です。

 このボトルをいただく前日にも、何故かフェッターケアンばかりを飲む機会があって(OMCやTWA)、しかし個人的にはこのボトルがダントツですね。刺激に溢れるウイスキーは多々ありますが、飲んでいて心がとても安らぐウイスキーって、最近飲んでなかったな~なんて思いました。真冬に、こたつに入ってぬくぬくと飲んだら、一発KOです!絶品!ご馳走様でした!

Color
Old gold
Nose

Very complex fantastic nose. Cinnamon, various kinds of nuts (peanuts, hazelnuts, nutmeg, cocos) and overripe soft exotic fruits. Vanilla, honey and yeast. Superb!

Taste

Bold, rich, aromatic and complex. More oaky than on the nose with dried apricots, spices and peanut butter.

Finish

Long, aromatic and satisfying. Very pleasant.

Comments

Highly recommended, absolutely fantastic stuff. Unbelievable good quality of bottlings from this distillery in 2009 (Old Train Line, Whisky-Faessle, The Perfect Dram and this one).
