  1. bennythemonster scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Old Fettercairn 1975 - 2009, 34 years; 57.2% alc.
    Bottler: Whisky-Fässle
    Extension: Ex-Bourbon barrel
    Region: Highlands, Scotland
    ...
    Nose: Mild honey, but quite a bit. Vanilla and toffee, sweet cream in a wooden bowl. Slightly dry. Fruity with peach, but loses itself in the honey. The flavors change nicely.

    Palate: Much more intense than the nose, really strong vanilla and also the honey is clearly present. Whipped cream and butter crumble, with peach compote. The oak brings spices, including some cinnamon.

    Finish: Long and very beautiful, much spicier than on the palate. With malt and tidy oak.

    Conclusion: Rarely found and then very expensive - rightly so.

    With water he becomes even more complex. The aromatic variety becomes even bigger. Taste and finish become a little gentler and softer. The fruits increases again. An outstanding Fettercairn
    • Nose
      Honey sweet, fruits (peaches, aprikots), complex, well balanced, lightly malty, diskreetly wood notes, a little bit vanilla, intensely, never sharply or spritty
    • Taste
      Fat, butter notes, honey sweet, fruit increase, creamy, full mouth feeling, very well integrated alcohol
    • Finish
      Powerful beginning, again a fruit increase, honey sweet, lightly malty, discreetly wood notes, long finish
