Review #58: The Single Cask Fettercairn 2011 7 Years Old

This review focuses on an exceptional expression of Fettercairn and it was initially matured in a bourbon hogshead before being transferred to an Oloroso octave for an additional period of maturation then being bottled at a cask strength abv of 65% in 2019.


So, let's dive right into the review!


The Single Cask Fettercairn 2011 7 Years Old (65% abv)


Nose: Deep resonant notes of dried fruits, raisins and figs, followed by walnuts & black pepper. Subtle hints of cigar smoke.   Palate: Rich dried fruits develop, with some sweeter raspberries, strawberries and some suggestion of grapefruit before the heavier sherry oak notes take over.   Finish: A complex finish that changes over time, led by soft oak and burning tobacco.


This expression is available in extremely limited quantities by the dram at The Single Cask.
