What a difference 4 months make! Having tried the Fettercairn in May, let’s see how I find it in October after a flight of official Fettercairn the day before in the shape of the 12, 16, 18 & 22yo.
C: Sure, there is a large oloroso drive, but contrary to my first visit, Fettercairn’s unique distillery character is intact under that lovely clean if wet[ish] cask. Bravo [Mr Walker Jr] for bringing a glossy Fettercairn to the stage. Perhaps it improved a little with time in glass? I’d like to think so.
