Tasting Notes: Fettercairn – Fasque


Fettercairn Fasque

Fettercairn distillery is owned by whisky giants Whyte & Mackay and is based at the foot of the Grampian Hills in the Highlands. Whilst the majority of their whisky goes off for blending, the distillery does offer a handful of single malt whiskies. The spirit itself comes from a fairly unique still which is cooled by the river water that flows by the distillery. The Fasque offering is an unpeated dram from the Fettercairn “estate bottling”.

ABV: 42%



M: Mulled wine spices and a whole bunch of sherried goodness.



M: Sweet at first with candied orange before some dark chocolate flavours and bitterness take over.



M: Quite harsh on the way down but it mellows out to reveal lasting Christmas pudding flavours. A little bit of heartburn from time to time here.



M: It’s a cheap and cheerful dram that has a festive flavoured feel and is available at a price that makes for a good present or just bit of a bargain for your whisky collection. Not groundbreaking but certainly ticking the “winter warmer” boxes at a price that’s hard to beat and a little something different to the standard UK supermarket fodder.
