Fettercairn 22 Year Old

This latest launch follows on from the recent release of Fettercairn 16 Year Old, and takes their core range up to six whiskies, ranging from 12 to 50 Years Old.

Fettercairn 22 Year Old, is said to deliver notes of banana, citrus fruit, plum, raisin, fig and gingerbread.  Followed by notes of spiced pear, caramelised orange, coffee, liquorice, Morello cherry, plum and treacle on the palate.

Commenting on the news, Kirsteen Beeston, Head of International Malts at Whyte and Mackay, said: “In adding a further expression to the core range, we have significantly enhanced the flavour experience on offer at Fettercairn.  We’ve also expanded consumer choice and demonstrated the exceptional quality of our aged stock at Fettercairn.  Growing from four to six expressions reflects feedback we have received on the core range and the clear need to bridge the gap between the 12 and 28 Years Old. We are working hard to create a range of whiskies which honour the approach at Fettercairn, but also provide whisky drinkers with single malts showcasing the special character which sits at its heart.”

Fettercairn 22 Year Old, will initially be available exclusively from The Whisky Shop, before being available from other specialist retailers in August, for a RRP of £200.00.
