Fettercairn 16 year old, 46.4%

Price: $91 Issue: Fall 2020 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

A 2020 addition to the Fettercairn stable, this expression was distilled using chocolate
malt, and matured in first-fill bourbon casks before a finishing in sherry and port
casks. The nose is slightly meaty, with raisins, black treacle, white pepper, and dark
chocolate. Smooth on the substantial palate, with drinking chocolate, plums, black
pepper, cinnamon, and a savory note. Ginger, chile, instant coffee, and pipe tobacco
in the finish. £70
