    Colour: Old gold-Amber.
    Nose: Very smooth and fruity, with light earthy and smoky
    notes, on melon, mango, papaya and passion fruit.
    Taste: Smooth, juicy, intense, rich, complex, slightly smoky,
    spicy and very fruity, on tangerine, melon, grenade and other fruits. The finish
    is medium to long, slightly earthy, quite thick, rich, spicy, slightly oaky and
    very fruity.
    General Impression: Sold only at the Distillery this
    Fettercairn is a tour de force. Matured in a bourbon cask, before being
    re-racked into a sherry oloroso quarter cask, this single malt combines rich and
    complex fruit cocktail flavours with a rich and intense body. They wanted to
    create something different from the traditional sherry and bourbon single casks
    for their visitor centre and this objective has been definitely rich with that
    whisky.
