Fettercairn Warehouse 2 Batch No.001


1st March 2021
Fettercairn launches a creative small batch series which pays homage the maturing stock in its 14 dunnage warehouses and launches with Fettercairn Warehouse 2 Batch No.001.

Fettercairn Warehouse 2 Batch No.001Fettercairn distillery today launched The Warehouse Collection, the first ever collection of small batch single malt whiskies from the Highland distillery. The Warehouse Collection aims to pay homage to the 14 dunnage warehouses where Fettercairn single malt whisky comes of age, and no doubt we will find a few treasures as each batch in the collection is rolled out going forward.

The Warehouse Collection launches with Fettercairn Warehouse 2 Batch No.001, which has been crafted using a creative mix of five different cask styles. Hand selected first fill American and European oak casks; filled with spirit that flowed from the Fettercairn stills in 2010 and has since been maturing in Fettercairn Warehouse 2. These casks each impart their own influence on the spirit and include unseasoned casks and sherry seasoned butts from Vasyma, sherry barrels from Tevasa, ex-bourbon barrels and Port Pipes.

Non-chill filtered and bottled at a flavoursome 49.7% ABV, there are only 3,600 bottles available in this Fettercairn Warehouse 2 Batch No.001.

Whisky Maker, Gregg Glass said: "For some time, Iíve wanted to share the secrets and treasures which lie within our unique dunnage warehouses at Fettercairn. We've had the opportunity to create something quite special with this new collection that celebrates the treasure trove of beautiful casks we have at Fettercairn. Iím looking forward to whisky drinkers discovering these for themselves. The collection means we can also continue to build on the long history of experimentation and exploration at Fettercairn, which sits firmly at the heart of the series, whilst also starting to reveal what might come next from the distillery."

I haven't had the chance to taste the Fettercairn Warehouse 2 Batch No.001 yet so I cant comment on its quality but I will certainly update you when I get the chance to taste it meanwhile the official tasting note is below to give you and idea of what you will find in the bottle.

With a RRP of £55 Fettercairn Warehouse 2 Batch No.001 is initially available from today from The Whisky Shop followed by wider UK distribution from mid-March from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt
 

Fettercairn Warehouse 2 Batch No.001 Review


Producer's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Light, elegant and truly refined as enticing floral notes of fleshy honey dew melon, Doyenne du Comice pear, cape gooseberries and freshly baked brioche covered in Scottish heather honey. In the background ginger spice, creamy caramel, Madagascan vanilla pod and poached peaches.

Taste: The alluring aromas are immediately transferred onto the palate as creamy coffee latte, tangy grapefruit segments, spicy apple tart laced with cinnamon and Turkish Delight take centre stage. However with a small edition of cool still water this helps to release another layer of exuberance with warming flavours of Devonshire fudge, vanilla cake, maple syrup and fresh clementines. A compelling whisky of genuine charm.
