Whisky Reviews for Fettercairn 24-year-old
8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.37 points
- dark oak with coffee, chocolate and caramel
- In the nose at first a pleasant wine must followed by toffee and a very light rosemary in the background. Taste a bit nutty, sherry, “humid” dark oak. Finish not lasting as expected.
- Serge says:
Colour: gold. Nose: definitely old style, even kind
of antique, starting on roasted nuts, caramelised
cereals and Seville oranges but soon to get much
waxier, flintier and even leathery, rather ‘old
Highlands’ in style. Some cooked ham and whiffs
of beef stock and old walnuts that hint at sherry.
It’s complex yet rather delicate globally,
kind of old style once again. Just a little gunpowder.
Mouth: the unusual beefiness strikes first, as well
as notes of orange zests and quite some bitter chocolate.
Goes on with kind of a waxy fruitiness, lemon zests,
liquorice, rosehip tea and just tiny wee hints of
cardboard and bitter wood. A wee smokiness too.
Finish: medium long, a little more on malt and smoky
toffee. Marmalade too. Comments: an old Highlander
in velvet gloves. It’s very good. SGP:452

- I liked aroma a lot. But without water for sure - it spoiled everything this time. Complex malt, needs some time and attention. Not the one to take while chatting with friends.
Honey with hints of liquorice. Ripe pears with some lemon, significant notes of orange peel and notes of cacao. Was strong alcohol notes at the beginning. After a while some interesting tones of vanilla with Riesling wine emerges. Water is not needed there - just spoiled the aroma.
Oily, rich malt. Lots of fruits. Pears are complemented by some peanuts. Some hints of liquorice, cinnamon, almonds and wax. Leather and damp wool.
Spicy, not so long with toffee and coffee, maybe bitter chocolate.
- Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
Nose: Nutty, spicy nose with notes of caramel, toffee popcorn, calves leather, beeswax, granary toast and hints of walnut cake.Palate: Malty and spicy with notes of berry fruits, star anise, a little orange zest, cocoa and coffee beans.Finish: Long and fruity with notes of buttery toffee and malt.
- Really well balanced whisky which is quite easy-drinking, but also offers complexity.
