Colour: amber – bronze. Nose: quite vibrant, starting on old rancio, bitter oranges and chestnut honey. Whiffs of peat, quite some liquorice, all kinds of nuts coated with caramel, rum, Smyrna raisins… And finally lots of small, very ripe fruits such as strawberries or raspberries. Hints of parsley and chervil, even fresh mint. Very complex. Old Fitzgerald Bottled Bourbon Whiskey
Mouth: sweet, coating, with quite some roasted nuts, burnt cake, toaste bread and lots of bitter chocolate. Raisins again, rum, and then blueberry pie… Really excellent, even if the palate is a little less complex. A slight smokiness. The finish isn’t too long but balance and very ‘full’. Truckloads of pleasure with this Old Fettercain.
