What they say:

A 10 year old single malt from the Fettercairn distillery, matured in a refill hogshead from summer 2005 to autumn 2015. It comes to us from the Douglas Laing Provenance range, which celebrates the seasons of whisky production.


Opens fresh & fragrant on the nose, carrying a ripe white fruit quality plus crushed sugar


Sweet throughout, with attractive vanilla in an American Cream Soda style


Medium long, still fresh & lingers with a citrus sherbet zesty zing

What I say:

Dram#2 from The Dram Team Incredible Indies tasting set was this 10 year old Fettercairn, distilled in 2005 and bottled 2015.


Very light straw gold (1/20) loose medium tears leave fine legs


light, lemon juice, grassy hay, peach melba, something solventy & estery, white grapes, pear flesh


like the nose – bit more depth of sugar & honey but also a sour/bitterness, pear drops and sparkling white wine, crisp green apples, slightly creamy with hints of vanilla


Medium, tart white fruit, sparkling wine


Very fresh and refreshing, almost a little too tart for my palate, fizzy lemonade!

Score: 81/100
