What's in a name? Fettercairn '1824' 12 Year Old whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Fettercairn '1824' 12 Year Old whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Aromatic, oily, beeswax, honey. Walnut and hazelnut. Barley.
Palate: Medium, oily, nutty. Spicy. Sweet honey. Crystallized stem ginger. Malty.
Finish: Medium. Winter spice. Cinnamon, ground ginger, walnut. Oak.
1824 was by any measure an awesome whisky. As good as any and absolutely mind-blowing when one looks at the price.

This was my favorite whisky, Why did you ever stop making it.
It was the best in my view.
The rating should be zero now, as it is no longer for sale.
Now got to find another whisky to suit my palette.
