About this deal

For at least 10 years he ran parallel experiments in Jamaica and Scotland to improve his rum and whisky production. These experiments included using a wooden still that prevented the wash from scolding and increased the spirit’s alcoholic strength; however, these stills proved grossly inefficient in comparison to other designs of stills such as the Coffey still. By his death in 1845 he was hopelessly indebted, and the distillery never recovered. There is no association between Shand’s distillery and modern Fettercairn. On the nose: Very fruity, light texture, orange leaves, Starburst sweets, some red fruits, bergamot, sherry sweetness is modern and balanced.

Those who have reached great heights through business success or public office are often aware of the eventual eulogising that may follow them. Not one that I would recommend, especially given the price, but if you fancy a challenge, head over to The Whisky Exchange. I prefer the 12 Year Old to be honest.

Fettercairn has recently been Dalmorized. That means they’ve asked The Nose to highlight some of their best whiskies, specifically at high ages. The classic Dalmore recipe of finishing in Gonzalez Byass casks and Port casks has been applied, as well as an overall (steep) increase in price.Perhaps more questionable is the suggestion that at the height of the success of Shand’s distillery with his experimental stills, Nethermill distillery installed Shand’s design of still in 1832: You are responsible for all activities through your account.

Shand’s distillery was also known as Fettercairn Distillery, and the whisky was reasonably well regarded at the time. It appears the current Fettercairn Distillery was previously known as Nethermill, thus confusion was avoided initially. Certainly, Nethermill Distillery is recorded in Fettercairn in 1845 the year of William Shand’s death. 2 Frustratingly, it is also recorded as “Fettercairn Distillery, or Farm of Nethermill” in the Edinburgh Gazette of December 6 1842. Nethermill has infrequently been used as a name under which whisky from Fettercairn distillery has been released. Nose: An aromatic combination of dusty furniture, suede leather and rosewood alongside apricot, peach, clementine and vintage orange liqueur. Running throughout, a funkiness that I’d commonly associate with the OB Fettercairn’s I’ve tasted to date – an odd mixture of chopped herbs and potpourri with creamy coconut. Intriguing, but a little strange and disjointed. The addition of water adds aromas of biscuit crumb, stem ginger and refined brown sugars as well as highlighting the near three decades in cask with increased wood panelling and a touch of polish. On the nose: Burnt sugar, modern seasoned sherry casks, treacle, date puree, raisins, hints of tropical fruits, new sneakers, orange peel.

First established in 1824, Fettercairn whisky was just the second legal distillery to open following the Excise Act of 1823, and it’s seen its own fair share of troubles and obstacles over the years too, namely a fire which meant that the distillery had to be rebuilt and the subsequent financial woes. Finish: long, on earthy, spicy sandalwood, but with a great flash of tropical fruits (passion fruit, pink grapefruit). There is complexity here, but much of that is coming from the wood which is overpowering the spirit. Over-oaked and a little disappointing given the price-point. Score: 5/10 On the nose: Bright and fruity, juicy peach, butter toffee, sponge cake batter, apple and pear with a little grist.Fettercairn is a pure spirit which is crafted by its unique stills and forged through temperate maturation. Within its process, the distillery uses a unique irrigator ring that surrounds the stills which drenches the still to deliver only the purest spirit. In recent years, they have been experimenting with flavours from wood charring, with whisky aged in barrels made from locally sourced oaks.

We all headed for the hotels so that we could freshen up and change for our gala dinner at Amuse by Kevin Dalgleish Restaurant.
