On the 15th day of the Drinks by the Dram WhiskyAdvent Calenday 2015, I went back to a nice Fettercairn. She is quite easy to like…
Nose: sweet, clover-honey, a hint of peat, salt, coffee-beans, citrus, blood-oranges, slight malty, white beer with a slice of lime
Finish: gentle, a hint of smoke, sweet, red fruit, cherries, red apples, medium long, medium dry
Conclusion: fairly nice. I could recommend this to someone as a step towards peated whiskies.
More info: matured in ex-Bourbon, finished in ex-Sherry casks for an unknown period. It appears to be a large amount of 14-15 year old Fettercairn, complemented with much younger, heavily peated Fettercairn.
Fior means “true” in Gaelic.
.many thanks to the kind people of Drinks by the Dram to let us review their 2015 advent calendar
