Fettercairn Distillery 12 Year Old PX Sherry Cask Edition

12 Year Old Pedro Ximénez Sherry Cask Edition – 40% vol

Not only have I been lucky to have sampled some wonderful whiskies on a tweet tasting with the Whisky Wire and Fettercairn Distillery but I also managed to visit the distillery too Fettercairn Distillery Visit  Again, if you are in the area it’s really well worth your time.

As I had to dash off, I took my samples home with me.

On the nose, little hints of orange. There’s quite a sweet dried fruity freshness to this, a drizzle of honey…with a little chocolate and raisin on the nose too. It is fragrant…and inviting.

The palate is slightly less sweet than the nose suggested. It’s just a little thinner than I was expecting, which I’m judging against what I normally drink… Hints of orange still there though, and are more subdued than the hint on the nose. The lovely fruitiness coats the palate deliciously… It’s a pleasant and easy drinking whisky, even for a cask strength lover!!
