Fettercairn 30-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Image courtesy Whyte & Mackay. This single malt comes from a blend of Spanish oak and ex-Bourbon casks, and the nose is vibrant, tropical, and luscious with passion fruit, mango, orange peel, hints of cardamom, ginger, and figs. The taste is fruity and tangy with grapefruit, papaya, and mango tropical notes. Cinnamon, ginger, and cardamom add complexity with hints of honey and brown sugar to hold it all together. The finish is long and tropical with good fruity notes of papaya and mango, along with hints of spice. Excellent! (October, 2013)
