  1. dRambo scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    I was pleasantly surprised - I think PLV is pretty good - charming with nice strong sherry fruit influences - still no juice paint - has something
    • Nose
      85 85
      fragrant orange-sherry fruity with a clear coconut note and wax - quite tasty and round with a soft smoke - unfortunately the nose does not last long
    • Taste
      83 83
      Raisins, oranges, very spicy light oak - pepper and mint - wild honey - rum-nut-nut-chocolate
    • Finish
      83 83
      chocolaty, tobacco, fresh with herbaceous oak - slightly soapy impression rather eco mothballs with lavender - not unbelievable - simply special

    Peculiar whisky. Dry. Slightly smoky. Some sherry, actually not very inviting, but also interesting in a way, since it is very different. Not easy drinking. One still wonders what the master blender had in mind...
    • Nose
      80 80
      On the nose it has a sweetish, young metallic effect. It borrows from Tobermory or Jura with the wet cleaning rags and the yoghurt touch. A bit more malty and grainy over time. A hint of peat, but overall a rather unusual nose with hints of youthful off-notes.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Then strong in the mouth. Spice. Pepper. Dry sherry. Dry smoke and spicy wood. A hint of fruit. But only a little sweetness glides over the palate.
    • Finish
      80 80
      The finish is long on all sorts of dry notes. Rarely had so few sweet notes. Wood. Tobacco. Sherry, everything in the rather brittle version with a shot of peat smoke.

  4. Totoro scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Slightly strange and not without its flaws, but they seem to have used some actual old sherry butts for this bottling, which makes it really interesting from today's perspective.
    • Nose
      87 87
      The kind of sherried whisky you seldom get anymore these days. Reminds me of some Dalmore bottlings, (somewhere between the 15-year-old and the King Alexander III). Ultra-musty sherry, like sniffing the inside of a damp, slightly moldy, old cask. In a damp, slightly moldy, old cellar. Horsehair, grape must, worn leather, dried figs, hazelnuts, aged aceto balsamico, and spices like cumin and cardamom. And there's definitely some peated stock in here as well. There might be some brighter bourbon-matured elements shimmering beneath, but they're tough to make out in the face of the dominant sherry influence.
    • Taste
      83 83
      The sherry strikes first, again with lots of leathery, nutty impressions and some soft smoke. Some zesty citrus follow suit, then wet cardboard and a faintly fusty, floral aspect (violets?). It's thin, but lovers of Scotch from old sherry casks will lap this up.
    • Finish
      83 83
      More quotidian, the low strength handicaps it. Overbrewed Darjeeling and Lapsang Souchong, old saddle leather and salted licorice, with perhaps some smoky, tomato-based BBQ sauce and just a handful of acidic red berries.

  5. Boletus did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Ambiguous feelings are evoked here. For one, we have a nice level of complexity where the balance falls by the wayside. The aroma is very beautiful and complex. On the other hand, rather bitter tones develop in the mouth, which slip off again in an expansively bitter finish. ''Fettercairn'' does not have the most beautiful brandy, but the youthful freshness tries everything against the overpowering bitter oak of the sherry casks. A very difficult single malt to drink!
    • Nose
      Walnuts, dates, dried apricots, gummed malt, morello cherries, fig jam on burnt toast, sandalwood, roasted coffee, vanilla develops with aeration, a hint of marzipan, a small amount of smoke is active in the background
    • Taste
      Malty, a lot of caramel, kumquats, the morello cherries are hiding a bit, gentleman's chocolate, "bear dirt", too long East Frisian black tea mixture, the oak is rough, spices, coriander, nutmeg
    • Finish
      Rather long, but not particularly pleasant, strong bitter oak with light mineral smoke, greasy mouthfeel, malty finish, vanilla forms again, dried apricots, molasses

  6. Ben Bruikman scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    It's been a long time since I drank this whisky; I am therefore glad that I had kept the notes of this beautiful whisky. A beautiful whisky with beautiful fruit tones and a long finish.
    The color is dark gold
    • Nose
      In the nose soft fruitiness of pear and apple with spicy notes of cinnamon and vanilla. A hint of peat with hazelnuts, orange shavings, germer and coriander make the scent spectacular.
    • Taste
      Taste is summed up with powerful notes of dark chocolate, roasted coffee beans and mild smoky peat go together with nutmeg, mint, citrus fruit and truffles.
    • Finish
      The finish is long with notes of Sherry Trifle (traditional fruit dessert), marzipan and pineapple.

  7. The_Osprey scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Fettercairn Fior 42%.

    A double measure at home on a very rainy day.

    Very dark orange brown.

    Aroma is clean and cohesive. Whisky-infused marmalade to start. Spiced stewed red apple. Burnt fig biscuits. The oak intermingles with burnt, biscuity and fruit impressions. Maybe chocolate-covered dark cherry with some marzipan. Much later on there are some spent coffee grounds, chicory powder.

    Taste is soft up front, initially sits on the palate with the impact of water, only gaining salt and oak when swallowed. Faint cherry. The breathy building finish is the best aspect. I guess there is a 'juicy’ impression deriving from the combination of the low ABV and some fruity sherry cask flavours, but I would describe the flavour as more spicy and oaky really. Faintly peppery linger.

    When I bought this I think I had it in my head that this might be peaty … you know: Fior=Fire, but actually it turns out that this is a sherried Fettercairn. It doesn't have as much sherry character as the colour would suggest though. There must be caramel in this! In any case there's no doubt that this is a solid, enjoyable, clean and well-constructed whisky. Good - coming in above average for me. 3.5/84

  8. Roland7 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Clear associations with winter! Smoke, burnt rubber, firewood, burnt wood, coffee, creme brulee, spices, laurel, grapefruit, cough syrup. Very mineral.

  9. ErrHaBe scored this whisky 25 points Expert Junior

    I must have gotten a disaster batch apparently. The whisky is simply not drinkable for me:

    A penetrating metallic bitterness, underlaid with a bit of forest fruit and vanilla, both in the nose and in the mouth. In addition, there is an uncomfortable rubber note that gives the whole thing the rest.

    I can't understand how you can fill and sell something like that.

  10. Calmar scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A strange but harmonious combination of industrial and creamy notes, metal and sweetness, dense, juicy, rather minimalistic, without unnecessary details.
    • Nose
      Open, damp, damp wood with biting mineral-metallic shades, machine oil, metal shavings, oiled steel tools, welding spray, sweet creamy shades.
    • Taste
      Dense, rich, oak, strong mineral tones, industrial notes, machine oil, toffee, fudge, pepper wave, sweet creamy motives.
    • Finish
      Spicy, invigorating, mineral-metallic notes, oak, creamy tones.

    The nose is pleasing and surprisingly different, at least initially. Unfortunately in the mouth and especially weak in the finish.

    Still easy going. So overall it is ok for the price, nothing more.

    Beautiful mineral Sherrynase, but then relatively bitter-spicy with a hint of peat smoke. Unusual, but not wrong.

  19. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Well, he does not make me nervous. In addition, always a false note, which may be reminiscent of rubber.
    • Nose
      Forest honey, fermented grapes, pepper and occasionally subtle smoke.
    • Taste
      Mon Cheri, walnut, (ver) burnt almonds, again the pepper.
    • Finish
      Some sherry fruit and dark chocolate.

  22. ChrisSym scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    I had not expected the original filling of Fettercairn with this smokiness. But this is so well integrated that it makes the whisky really fun, even if the departure is rather restrained.
    • Nose
      The first impression is fruit paired with a fine hint of smoke, but all very mild first. I find strawberries, ripe pears and honey. Some oak flavor. With a little time and warmth, everything is stronger, very harmonious. I really like the smoke. Add some caramel and roasted nuts. Slightly herbal.
    • Taste
      Something watery on the tongue, but directly with great complex notes. The smoke is also present here with peppery notes and oak. The fruit is now more subtle, but the Nussigkeit comes with bitter almonds through more intense. Very dark cocoa.
    • Finish
      The departure less pronounced. Medium length with bitter notes, becoming dry on the palate and again the nuttiness. In fact, the smoke stays behind with me in the end.

  23. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    On the nose, slightly salty. Wet barley (not common). After a while, sweet traces of sherry. On the palate, wood and spices, mellow and sweet but not fruity. Final, spicy, citrus, a little lack of roundness. Enthusiasm 3/5

  27. wbarchive_104650 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    The nose is still quite good, compared to the absolutely meaningless taste. The finish does not tear it out then.
    • Nose
      At first it smells like cheap, sprightly alcohol. Luckily, this alcoholic touch disappears with a bit of time in the glass. Then comes a very light smoky note, as I actually know from Loch Lomond. With a cereal note and something artificial.
    • Taste
      Again, it starts somehow cheap. Pretty watery the whole thing without any significant flavor .. there is not much. Even with the second sip is not much. Maybe there's something chocolaty about it
    • Finish
      Pretty short. A bit of oak and pepper, ready.

  28. rottendon scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    I might like that, well, he could be a bit stronger, but he's definitely interesting and different than expected. Sweet stuff, I'll give it to you. Notes from an online chat tasting.
    • Nose
      Some smoke and a slightly acidic fruit note at the beginning, the whole backed with vanilla. Gentle aromas. After some time, I can understand both old wood and brandy, but in a positive way. Overall, fuller, fuller and more interesting. Tobacco and pickled plum, I think both are also quite appropriate. The fresh fruity is completely gone, but now I have some herbs and a hint of menthol. When warming a lot of plum jam with star anise and liqueur.
    • Taste
      Slightly thin, which takes a few seconds in the mouth, then it is quite dry with tobacco, herbs and some beet syrup as a contrast. A hint of oak to the rear. Also here, apparently, some smoke.
    • Finish
      Not even so short, warms up significantly, then at first is the very restrained sweetness to make room for rotting wood and tobacco again. The burden, which remains in the mouth at the end and slightly corky ashy, reminds again of smoke.

  29. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    I like it, stuffy stuff, apparently gotten good sherry keg and the smoky little corner fits in well. With ~ 40 € no bargain for NAS, but taste justified.
    • Nose
      Dusty, dead wood, almost a bit smoky (especially at the beginning, is weak), plus vanilla, schrumpliger red apple, caramel, also has something of brandy ... is then softer, rounder, a bit earthy
    • Taste
      quite strong, full-bodied, dark chocolate, wood, spicy (in the direction of pepper / nutmeg, a bit spicy), warm, earthy, mossy, and here too I form some sweetish smoke
    • Finish
      medium, the wood and the spices sound, coffee and a hint of licorice

  30. TheWhiskyAgent scored this whisky 76 points Expert Junior

    The nose starts quite floral with some Vanilla and a little Lemon. Dried Apricots and some classic Sherry notes. Then I get a salty breeze on a rocky beach, on the east coast of Scotland. The arrival is rather oaky and sweet-ish, a lot more simple then the nose would suggest. I also find some malt cookies (if that exists) in there. With water it gets a tad fruitier, some Oranges and a few Pears on the nose. Taste wise it gets a little sour and less sweet in the process. The feel of the oak has almost disappeared. The finish is medium long and a little drying. Could be better composed, if the owners would really care. Oh well…

    Well. You do not need to say so much anymore.
    • Nose

    • Taste
      Sweet, slightly acidic, citrus, cherry, cheap brandy, some dusty nutmeg pepper. At least halfway strong for 42%.
    • Finish
      Still the best here, some sherry oak, nice dry with citrus notes, but also a few berry / cherry flavors

    65% 15yo

    20% 14yo

    15% 5yo HP. What’s HP?
    N: Not a great deal, with or without water added - but then those plastic distillery tour cups are pretty useless. Light, sweetish fruits & sweet syrups on opening up - but no figs [a la ‘Fasque’]
    T: A dry, complex mix of all sorts.
    F: Spirity with clear touches of peat ash.
    C: Ever done plate spinning? Bit of a juggle but i find it a touch better than the Fasque WB. Let’s try a single cask WB.

  37. ScottFrench scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    A flattering nose, promising and very interesting. Unfortunately the reduction did not serve this Fettercairn Fior. The mouth is fairly monolithic, not very intense, and the final, too much alcohol. Too bad, it was announced though not bad ...
    • Nose
      Nice notes of cereals and dried fruits (hazelnut, cashews, pistachio). Pretty bold and sweet, with a dominant Sherry: plum, prune, apricot, orange and almond paste. It is very nice and not complex at first sight. There is also a hint of vanilla, milk chocolate and mint. We then go on with a salty side, spicy (cinnamon) and a little smoked. It's more complex than it seemed at first! A small shadow on the board: I find a hint of turnip, yes, turnip, which aches me a little in this plethora of smells ...
    • Taste
      Very light in the mouth. Light texture. We find the notes of coffee, cocoa, caramel, chocolate, orange, almond, pistachio and cinnamon, all in a very precise way. Unfortunately, alcohol is a bit too much despite the 42%. The fruity side takes second place, unbalancing the whole.
    • Finish
      Quite long, but tasteful not very interesting. We have the markers sherry, orange type, chocolate, coffee, but very lightly. By cons, alcohol is present ...

    "Combination of various vintages". (Official Tasting Notes)
    • Nose
      "Rich and enticing. Bold Highland nuances of crushed pear and toffee apple with intriguing spicy notes of cinnamon, vanilla and gooseberries drawn you in. Then a veil of tangy peat smoke, freshly baked bread and hazelnuts suddenly emerge, but is quickly tempered by orange rind, ginger and coriander." (Official Tasting Notes)
    • Taste
      Bold and positive. Mysterious, complex and heart-warming with its many attractive flavours of dark bitter chocolate, rich roasted coffee beans, citrus fruits and truffles. Each flavour combines in perfect harmony, then a charming 'spritzer' or prickle on the tongue of peat smoke, nutmeg and fresh mint arouse the senses. Rather intriguing but delightfully different. By holding this delectable malt long in the mouth you will capture the last remaining whispers of sherry trifle, marzipan and ripe pineapple." (Official Tasting Notes)

      Although she matured in ex-bourbon barrels and finishes in a sherry barrel, the smell most reminds me of the red wine barrels. Fruit-fruity aroma, with such a foggy peat-like veil, chocolate.

    Fior means pure or true in Gaelic, and this no-age-statement bottling

    launched in summer 2010 is something of a rebirth for the much-maligned

    Fettercairn distillery. Described by the producers as tasting of dark

    chocolate, coffee beans and peat smoke, with nutmeg, mint, citrus fruits

    and truffle. The finish is said to be of sherry trifle, marzipan and

    pineapple.

    For me personally, a disappointing whisky. Thought this one would be great, but unfortunately not for me.

    Wow, a really complex whisky, fresh citrus fruits with dark chocolate and also peated, incredible. A really long finish, warming with sweet toffee, smoke and spicy wood. It`s worth the money.

  62. Lafroy scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    Too strongly diluted as far as I´m concerned.
    • Nose
      Old oak, freshly burned coffee, minor hints of sherry, dark grapes, dryness, a little bit of spiciness, some black pepper and a very delicate leather.
    • Taste
      Too much water made it flat. It starts with pepper and oak, turns towards unpleasant sourness, a little bit of bitterness, spirit, salt, chili and dryness.
    • Finish
      Relatively short, rather flat, dry with hot and pepper notes.
