Whisky Reviews for Fettercairn 2008 TWBa

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.50 points

  1. adriank scored this whisky 82 points Member Senior

    Unfortunately this is the weakest from TWB in my books. Not bad, just somehow not my thing. I guess.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Freshly baked bread, sweet yeast smell, vanilla, overripe melon(?) then becomes something like a papaya-mango combination with sugar. Earth, cream, clotted cream.

      Water: Brings out green fruits, then papaya, maybe quince, something sweet and artificial, cheap blossomy perfume.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Bread, pastry, white pepper, ginger, oak, tropical fruit hint, vanilla, sweat, damp piece of cloth.

      Water: Emphasised sweat , green hints, immature maybe.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Medium to short, but balanced finish.

      I’m sorry we didn’t have a great chemistry.

  2. Dominic did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Despite low ABV, it is quite mouthwarming!
    • Nose
      Lemon balm, mint, fennel (light notes of anise), vanilla, grassy (green foliage), thyme.
    • Taste
      Butter croissant, cereals (sweet), peach, candied ginger, icing on a biscuit.
    • Finish
      Medium long with a bitter touch.
