Fettercairn 1992 - Connoisseurs Choice (Gordon and MacPhail)

Fettercairn 1992 Bottling Note

A thick, spicy single malt from the Fettercairn distillery, plenty of spicy fruitcake notes, distilled in 1992.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

Reviews for Fettercairn 1992 - Connoisseurs Choice (Gordon and MacPhail)
Not to my taste
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!
