This latest release from the Highlands based distillery, unites both Sherry-matured and Sherry-finished casks, to create a truly refined, balanced yet classic combination of rare Fettercairn and Sherry styles. The hand-selected casks from a small, family run Bodega in Jerez include first fill Oloroso, refill Oloroso and first fill aged Palo Cortado Sherry butts.
Commenting on the launch, Gregg Glass, Master Whisky Maker
at Whyte & Mackay, said: “This one-off Fettercairn 16 Years Old limited
edition was borne from fully-matured Sherry casks combined with hand-selected,
rare and old, Oloroso and Palo Cortado Sherry butts. For me, this was about
retaining the natural beauty and balance of our Fettercairn tropical house
style while elevating the pure beauty and refinement of select, aged Palo
Cortado and Oloroso casks. Combining these elements allow us to share another
aspect and dimension to our truly unique warehouse stocks at Fettercairn.”
Fettercairn 16 Years Old – 2021 Edition, will be available
later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £79.00.
