Fettercairn 16 Year Old 2023 Limited EditionIts that time of year once again, Fettercairn distillery located at the foothills of Cairngorm mountains in the Highland of Scotland has unveiled their 4th annual release in their unique Fettercairn 16 Year Old single malt series.

For the Fettercairn 16 Year Old 2023 release, the whisky makers at Fettercairn have explored the distillery's extensive stock reserves to present a whisky that has undergone maturation in first-fill ex-Port Pipes and ex-Bourbon casks.

This release, the Fettercairn 16 Year Old 2023 edition, serves as a testament to the craftsmanship and creativity of the Fettercairn distillers. It showcases a meticulously balanced spirit that is said to highlight the enchanting tropical characteristics unique to the distillery's style.

Bottled at 46.4% ABV (non-chill filtered), Fettercairn 16 Year Old is said to present with a rich, golden amber, in natural colour. To smell, warm aromas of tropical fruit are layered with berry fruits, rich cacao, sugared almonds and floral top notes.

To taste, expect to enjoy seasonal blackberries and raspberries which interweave with natural vanilla and caramel notes. Soft plum is balanced with fresh baked ginger cake and cherries while aged oak spice accentuates the tropical house characteristics.

First launched in 2020, each annual limited-edition release has enjoyed expert experimentation in creation, through a range of finishes and malts under the careful watch of award-winning Master Whisky Maker Gregg Glass and the talented team at Fettercairn. So each annual release of the Fettercairn 16 really is unique and so far pretty outstanding drams, hopefully this is as good as its predecessors.

The 70cl offering of Fettercairn 16 Year Old 2023 has a RRP of 82, there is also a 1 litre bottle which will be available in travel retail shops. You will find the 70cl bottle available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, and Master of Malt
