    Fettercairn 12yo

    Posted by Carlee Wilson

    Enjoy Fettercairn 12yo Single Malt with our A La Carte Menu through November

    Since Sir Alexander Ramsay established the distillery in 1824, Fettercairn been going to extraordinary lengths to capture the purest expression of it’s whisky’s character.

    Located in the foothills of Scotland’s Cairngorms, they don’t just use crystal clear mountain water as an ingredient, but drench the stills with it too, cooling the copper so only the finest vapours rise.

    Fettercairn 12yo spends its entire maturation in American ex-bourbon oak before it's bottled at 40% ABV.

    Tasting Notes

    COLOUR: Sunlight, amber honey

    NOSE: Vanilla and pear with soft spices

    PALATE: Refreshing nectarine and tropical fruit, with subtle roasted coffee, clove, and ginger

    FINISH: A memorable finish of sultanas and black toffee

    OUR THOUGHTS: This whisky is a delightfully fresh and floral malt with a very easy-going initial palate warmth. Hidden devilishly behind this quaffable dram is a quite complex flavour profile that would delight any discerning single malt connoisseur. This lighter, fruitier style of whisky is appealing to a younger demographic and effectively creating a distinct shift in the way we perceive whisky. Millennials are reconsidering whisky, a drink they once ruled out for consumption. And long-serving devout whisky lovers? They're simply relishing in the brilliance that comes with the diversity of this unique spirit.

     

    Brian and the team hope they can welcome you soon to share in this delectable dram...here's our current A La Carte menu for those needing further persuasion! Cheers!
