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)
Fettercairn 12 Year Old
- 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.

A very good dram, right in my wheelhouse. Sadly I cannot get this in Canada
My husband's absolute favourite
Refreshing whisky, with all the right tastes.
Delicious dram with so much going on. Loads of tropical fruit and just a hint of fresh rhubarb at the end.
This is a cracking whisky. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I usually raise an eyebrow at tasting notes, but the mention of pineapple was spot-on.
