Distilled at Fettercairn distillery in the Highlands.

This 12 Years Old represents the entry-level age statement expression of the recently revised Fettercairn range.

My tasting notes:

  • Appearance: Amontillado (10/20), medium-large legs, medium tears.
  • Nose: Soft toffee or fudge, citrus, clementine and nectarine, vanilla, brioche.
  • Taste: Fruity, pineapple, apple, orange, pear, apricot, soft buttery fudge, vanilla, cinnamon spice and cereal malt.
  • Finish: Medium, soft, buttery.


Quite light and nondescript.

Score 72/100
