  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    The spices take the lead on the palate, which I usually don't gravitate towards, but it somehow works.
    • Nose
      Mush banana, raw sugar and a tinge of yoghurt, but also breakfast cereals like oats and cornflakes. Rather a breakfast-y first impression, followed by whiff of ripe apple, apricots and pear skin.
    • Taste
      Oak spices and cumin after an initial sweetness, mostly raisins and a tinge of sugar-y strawberries. A whisper of tobacco and menthol too, as well as ginger, breakfast tea and a whisper of orange liqueur.
    • Finish
      Not unlike the taste, spicy and sweet notes linger for quite a while.

    This whisky was a great dram. Relatively sweet on the nose a bit of syrup, apple and a hint of spice.

    On the Palate you get more of the syrup and spice - excellently balanced and you wouldn’t guess it was 49% abv

    The Finish was medium, slightly fruity with honey.

    Quite nice. All the different casks work really well together, it’s very well balanced and it has the Fettercairn character all over it. A great addition to the range!
    • Nose
      Pears, acacia honey and oats. Vanilla too. Quickly followed by apricots and fresh oranges. A hint of Earl Grey tea. Caramel fudge and cinnamon.
    • Taste
      Acacia honey again. Sweet raisins and vanilla. Followed by a hint of oranges. Red apples. Early Grey tea and a touch of maple syrup too. Some lovely spices, such as black pepper, cinnamon and a touch of ginger.
    • Finish
      Rather long with the same spices as on the palate, honey and raisins.

      Goes from tangy to smooth once it's aired for a bit. I get creamy coffee, spice, buttery scones, ginger raisins, some pear
