A thick, spicy single malt from the Fettercairn distillery, plenty of spicy fruitcake notes, distilled in 1992.
The nose is quite light, yet there is a certain richness. There are some sherried peels and sultanas with notes of barley sugar and cereal sweetness. Hints of honey and oily walnut with a rubbed petal note. The palate is medium-bodied with a thick mouthfeel. There are notes of winter fruitcake with all the requisite spice. Notes of aniseed and barley with a good dollop of malt extract. There are hints of sherried peels. The finish is long and dry with peppery oak.

I enjoyed the old 10yo Fettercairn and G&M bottlings are usually reliable so this seemed a safe bet. The body is firm and at full strength,46%,the whisky is perfumey, spicey,finishing dry and slightly bitter. However, reduced, the finish is so bitter and astringent as to become, frankly, unpleasant. Not at all what I expected and I know that £30 could have been better spent!
