Cadenheads Fettercairn 11yo 56.7% ABV


Cadenhead Fettercairn 11yo 2007 single malt is bottled uncoloured and without chill filtering. It is bottled at 56.7% ABV.

Appearance: Very light gold/diluted apple juice/white wine.
A thin swirl mark forms but a nice thick film too. Plenty of thick legs slowly seep down the glass.
Some teardrops form after a while.

Nose: A biscuit sweetness, wheaty like a box lemon meringue biscuit base. Stewed red apple and pear drop barley.
White chocolate and raisins. There’s also a faint wisp of sweet smoke now.

Palate: A lovely oily mouthfeel, buttery and mellow but with a black pepper spice touch. Warms the chest nicely.
The spice element increases with every sip, turning almost chill-like and slightly drying.
There’s a contrasting vanilla and honey sweetness.

Finish: Medium to long. The black pepper spice and visit sweetness linger longest.
Lemon sherbets and strawberry.

Overall: A lovely example of a cask-strength whisky. All the lovely sweet notes, but with a decent dose of spice.
