  1. whiskynews did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    whiskyfun.com:

    The lady on the label goes well with the rum cask here, does she not. Colour: white wine. Nose: the rum’s very obvious and I cannot not think of Havana Club. Pineapples, pink grapefruits, bananas, then some mentholy liquorice perhaps, then more proper maltiness, without any of Fettercairn’s usual wackier aromas. No burnt vegetables and no dead animals in this one – no tourists either. With water: amazing that water would favour the malt part, and almost offset the rum’s influence. Barley and paraffin in the front. Mouth (neat): it really is some LOL-rumsky, I’d love to meet the gentlemen who flushed the casks. So, you say he’s Mr…. …. ? Seriously, this is fun, just very unorthodox. Bananas and barley with a little brine and, indeed, cane juice. With water: once again, water almost killed the rum. The malt is nice, having said that, cleaner than other Fettercairns, more citrusy, waxier, just a tad narrow, perhaps. Finish: medium, good, on some kind of lemon bread. Comments: there’s much fun to be had with this little unpretentious baby. Resistance is futile, salud!

    Weird whisky with in the taste 'some' fruits.
    Seams to me a funky wine distillate...
