Fettercairn 24-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Image courtesy Whyte & Mackay. This single malt has notes of honey and vanilla on the nose at first, followed by a buildup of allspice, ginger, and cinnamon spices. Brown sugar and molasses sweetness hide in the background. The taste is syrupy and smooth at first, with a peppery bite that comes in and dominates along with clove and allspice notes. The finish is short with a lingering touch of clove that lasts on the tongue. (October, 2013)
