    NOSE: fresh forest fruits, blueberries and plums. A dash of oats. sultanas in the background. Maple syrup and milk chocolate. Cherries. Oranges too. Later, light nutmeg also appears.

    TASTE: blueberries and raisins. Honey and sweet cherries. A touch of cardboard. It is followed by vanilla and a hint of orange. Light oak. Milk chocolate and spices such as light pepper and cinnamon, pinch of ginger.

    FINISH: Fairly long, slightly drying but this seems to go away suddenly? A little oak and with the same spices as in the taste. Dark chocolate too.

    The result is once again a very special, one-off creation that will never be repeated. The challenge was to fine-tune the balance of barrel influence that would yield the unique profile I was looking for. A unique drinking experience that defines Fettercairn, with accentuated taste characteristics.
    great whisky highly recommended.

    Fruity and dry, really a beautiful nose, oily dram full of mango, melon, passion fruit and other soft fruit, here and there some vanilla and marzipan.... In terms of nose we give this bottle 89/100 points. The 16-year-old smells old-fashioned. Craftwork in terms of nose, the aftertaste a little too short, experts say 85.
