Notes from Spirits Corner: We humans, we are a people of contrasts, in each of us lies the darkness as well as the possibility to accomplish the most wonderful. The series "Spirits of Humanity" is at the beginning and wants to take us on a journey through different flavors with which we can do good things almost casually. Hardly any whisky would come to mind as much as Fettercairn's. Not only does the distillery have a unicorn in the logo, but it is also a fairly old distillery spared from any hype, it may stand for the polar opposite like the mythical creature, symbolizing the process of change of the people. The drop from the Highlands, which found its way to us in cask strength, does not hide its straw-yellow hue behind sugar couleur, no, it boasts the bright color of its eighteen-year-old age, which makes it appear almost transparent in the glass, depending on the perspective. Mythical creatures are not easy to grasp. Once the drop is released from the bottle, it flatters the nose slightly tingling with notes of creamy blossom honey and gentle pear. One is seduced right after the first smell to rush into it and let it romp in the mouth. Who does this will be surprised, because he hits with his full body and the whole 58.1% Vol. If this is the case, please do not be put off, it tastes like untamed freedom. With the second sip you are already more open and will guess the finer flavors here as well. At first you will probably feel reminded of spicy herbs, but it has more to taste, for example, the sensational honey aroma which was just in the nose and wants to accompany us now, long beyond the strong and warm finish. Or the delicate caramel vanilla note that dares to cautiously from the background. He offers so much to explore, you should take the opportunity, because when you last had the opportunity to look at a unicorn up close?
