  1. SwiftyMcVeigh scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Tasted in the 1920 Blenders glass.
    Delicious, fruity whisky.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Preserved apples and apple jam. A ripe banana. Forest honey, vanilla and spices. Over time, lemon too.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Lemon cake. Apples. Ginger heat that sits on the tongue and vanilla. In addition, honey sweetness and oak seasoning.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium length. Gets dry easily. The fruit notes together with the oak spice remain.

    Banana

    Fettercairn is one such distillery that doesn't often appear on my radar, but still occasionally delivers gems (we have bottled a Fettercairn with MMM for a reason). I remember being able to enjoy the first Warehouse No 2 release. Wondering if this Batch 2 is also to my liking.

    Fresh nose on apples, honey, vanilla, and a single slice of lime. Overripe banana. Very fruity, but at the same time very light. Doesn't bother in the least. Some late coconut milk.

    The body is a bit on the light side. Vanilla and banana are noticed first, followed by honey and something that reminds me of lemon pie. Now the first wood spices appear, which ensures a good balance.

    The finish is medium-long and fruity (again that banana), but then gently becomes dry.

    Fine malt, though. And fairly priced. About 65 EUR.

    It's very correct, but you can largely skip it anyway.
    • Nose
      Very fruity and nicely caramelized, floral nose. Shortbread.
    • Taste
      Mouth on the same spirit as the nose, with more vanilla and much spicier (spicy).
    • Finish
      Generic, slightly woody vanilla melted wax finish. Notes of ginger.

  5. Gortheryn scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Reminds me of blossom honey on the nose, maybe summer honey.
    Wonderfully fresh and spicy on the palate at the same time.
    Now for the summer, in my eyes, a wonderful dram.

  7. lincolnimp scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    It has mango and a little banana on the nose with a spicy palate mixed in with apple, very faint lemon zest and icing sugar.
    A bit rough and ready but interesting all the same and the finish is pretty decent and steals the show.

    Tropical fruits, buttery, sweet with a pleasant spiciness. No real weaknesses and very drinkable

  17. SeWuWhisky scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Banana and ice candy are very dominant, a slightly herbal note in the background and a little honey. Nice, complex with a little sweetness
    Mouthfeel: unfortunately a slight astringency that only lingers briefly in the mouth. Otherwise relatively mild and dry.
    Taste: Chocolate, sweetness, the fruit is more reminiscent of apples and fruit gums. Oak and spicy notes also come through.
    Finish: oak notes alternate with a slight sweetness, fruit notes also come through again and again. Long and beautifully dominant finish. Unfortunately the barrel notes / tannins are too strong for my taste
