What's in a name? Fettercairn 30 Year Old whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Fettercairn 30 Year Old whiskey, rather than whisky.

Fettercairn 30 Bottling Note

The amazing 30 year old Fettercairn from their redesigned range. It was distilled in 1978 and has a lot of thick Oloroso sherry notes coming through. Just delicious stuff, and it looks great too!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Beeswax and dried herbs, some toffee apple, and a hint of fresh peppermint leaf. Cedar, cigar leaves and butterscotch.

Palate: Pine resin, beeswax and thick barley malt. Spiciness from cinnamon, toasty oak and a touch of something rubbery.

Finish: Good length with more of those pine-y, resinous notes, potpourri and honey.

User Reviews of the Fettercairn 30 Year Old

Add to "What's Jim Murray got against this spirit?"

Still noticing the finish. After posting, a few of those "rubbery" notes came out. Hmmm. Don't like "rubbery" as a description. They're tastier than that.

What's Jim Murray got against this spirit?

Murray gave this a 78 in his latest bible (2013), but I don't get it. I don't pick up all the notes off the nose that the Chaps at the Master of Malt do, but I get the toffee apple, the peppermint hint, also some cereal. The taste is excellent, flavorful, complex. Pine resin? I don't think I would like pine resin, but it doesn't matter because I didn't detect any. Chaps might have mentioned a little of that toffee goodness which seems to accompany a lot of well-aged whiskies. The finish is also delightfully complex---and long. Spiciness. Honeyed. More toffee. This is good stuff. What didn't you like Mr Murray?
