Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 47%
After many years in the wilderness, things have been looking up for Fettercairn distillery - although this pretty Highland distillery remains very much in the shadow of sister distillery Dalmore, there are positive signs of recovery under Whyte & Mackay's new owners Emperador.
Fettercairn's ambitious 2018 relaunch included the release of this well-received prestige Fettercairn 22-year-old edition. Bottled at a refreshing 47%, this bourbon-matured old Fettercairn is a fruity dram with well-balanced vanilla, caramel and peppery spice.
