A revitalised Fettercairn, focusing on the distillery's fruity character. Matured in ex-bourbon casks for 12 years, this is packed with tropical flavour without losing the distillery's weightiness and gentle gingery spice.Tasting Notes (2)
- Milk Chocolate
Tasting notes from Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Candied lemon and pineapple, butter icing and a hint of mint. A touch of meatiness sits right at the back, giving the dram some weight. The sweetness builds and orchard fruit develops along with vanilla, milk chocolate and some green leaves. A thread of fruitiness runs through the middle.
Soft and rounded, with gentle spice, milk chocolate and sweet cream leading. Fresh pineapple notes are balanced by fresh oak, with damp oak and damp leaves following. Cinnamon, candied ginger and nutmeg develop, along with a touch of creamy coffee.
Vanilla cream, chocolate and coffee fade to leave menthol and crunchy apples.
Tropical fruit is in at the moment, and this is on point. It's lighter and fruitier than older releases and harks back to the longer-aged expressions of years gone by.
Aged in American White Oak ex-bourbon barrels, Fettercairn 12 Year Old is the colour of sunlight and amber honey, with vanilla, pear and soft spices on the nose and refreshing nectarine, tropical fruit and roasted coffee to taste. To finish, memorable flavours of sultanas and black toffee.

Have just taken a delivery of this as the last time I had this I had covid so missed out the full taste experience. Still love it second time round. Unless I am mistaken this has a touch of the 'bourbon' about it and is very easy on the palate.
Very good whisky
Unreal whisky for the price
Really interesting an enjoyable single malt. Loads of tropical fruit, coconut and vanilla coming from 12 years aged exclusively in ex bourbon casks! Highly recommended!
I had never heard of this brand before, but found Fettercairn 12 in the Great Portland St shop last month. I've had a few drams now and really enjoy the fruity spice from this whisky. Very easy to drink and enjoy - I shall be buying this again!
