Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Typically rich and floral for a Fettercairn of antiquity. Lush yet complex enough for primroses to abound.
Palate: Brilliantly fresh and teeming in cut grass and mouth-watering malt. A lovely butterscotch plateau.
Finish: Restrained peppers and more malt. The oak is no more than a shadow.
Comment: Outstanding for any malt this age. As fresh as a daisy and a must to experience. Fettercairn really does come into its own at 30 plus!
8.8
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Delicate peat. Clean with an almondy nuttiness.
Palate: Lightly oily. Minty. Chlorophyll. Starched clothing in a linen press. Perfumy. Orange flower water.
Finish: It wells up in the finish like a surge of memories.
Comment: An elegant, elderly chatelaine.
