  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    In store sample.

    This last run of Signatory bottlings came down in price, which is a breath of fresh air. Old Fettercairn always interests me, and this one is only ok. The palate is actually really great, but sandwiched between mediocrity. I was hopeful, because at just over $250 cdn, it’s a very fair price.

      Fairly simple, but pleasant nose. Salted caramel, biscuit and cereal notes. A bit dusty with suggestive hints of straw/cardboard.

      Wonderfully viscous mouthfeel. Toffee, vanilla bean, slightly waxy, milkfuls candy, lemon shortbread, salted caramel, and a little dusty. Awesome palate.

      It starts on salted caramel, and lemon shortbread, but reverts back to its old tricks with some notes of burlap, grain, vanilla. Actually, I sampled a fairly assertive glen scotia after this, and on the way home i could taste the husky burlap note. Almost reminiscent of cork taint, although I’m sure it’s not.
