  1. Malzbrenner scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    In the glass a 13-year-old Fettercairn from the Signatory Vintage series, bottled with 43% vol. And distilled in 2006. The color is in the range of a white wine.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Green and yellow fruits spread on the nose, almost with tropical hints, to which a restrained sweetness fits. Medium-ripe pineapple, green banana, green mango, water apple, nashi pear, a hint of vanilla and liquorice. A weak menthol note gives the whisky a pleasant freshness, with the flavors appearing very soft and reserved. Becoming more and more inviting over time.
    • Taste
      84 84
      The fruity impression continues on the palate before a spicy mint briefly takes over. However, this only lasts for a short time and the half-ripe fruits return. White pepper, green apple, green banana, bitter notes, light spice, white chocolate. With a little water it is much more pleasing and with additional herbal notes.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Medium-length finish with distinct spice and light bitter almond, menthol, quince, green pear and a fresh spiciness. With a little water much more pleasing and one point better.

      spicy - white pepper, all the fruits from the nose plus more tropical / citrus notes, some mint in there as well, however arrival is lacking and the mouth is very short, with some time more green fruits - unripe mango and bananas, with water: more dry, tannic, woody,
    • Finish
      84 84
      same goes for finish, short, with some pepper and lemon zest, with water: oaky, dry, leathery, white pepper, frozen raspberries,

  3. TomAndIngrid scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    From a blind tasting in December. Good PLV and ok with water. More like a summer whisky.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Nose with nice, sweet fruit aromas, after a few seconds it becomes very alcoholic.
    • Taste
      79 79
      Exotic fruits accompanied by light malt aromas, followed by very strong alcohol. You can influence this positively with water.
    • Finish
      76 76
      Mighty burning alcohol.

  4. Helgo scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Top PLV. Real summer whisky that is straightforward and dangerous to drink. Classic EX-Bourbon notes, tropical fruits, medium-long finish 46% would have been nice, but also such a well-rounded package for 35 €
