Michael Jackson

Nose
Delicate peat. Clean with an almondy nuttiness.
Palate
Lightly oily. Minty. Chlorophyll. Starched clothing in a linen press. Perfumy. Orange flower water.
Finish
It wells up in the finish like a surge of memories.
Comment
An elegant, elderly chatelaine.

Jim Murray

Nose
Typically rich and floral for a Fettercairn of antiquity. Lush yet complex enough for primroses to abound.
Palate
Brilliantly fresh and teeming in cut grass and mouth-watering malt. A lovely butterscotch plateau.
Finish
Restrained peppers and more malt. The oak is no more than a shadow.
Comment
Outstanding for any malt this age. As fresh as a daisy and a must to experience. Fettercairn really does come into its own at 30 plus!
