Fettercairn Fasque Single Malt Whisky 70cl at Tesco instore for £16.25

7
Found 8th Aug 2017
Found this on clearance at £16.25 in Tesco Dunfermline, doesn't seem to be available on Tesco's website. Thought it had to be worth a punt at this price for a single malt! Seems to get favorable reviews. Bottled at 42%.

Fettercairn Fasque Bottling Note
From the Fettercairn distillery at the foothills of the Cairngorm Mountains comes the Fettercairn Fasque, which is named after a country estate that is also rather close to the distillery. It's an unpeated expression from the Highland distillery.

With a name like that I hope you cleared the shelf
Thats a buy price . . .
Oddly, Tesco did a clearance a couple of years ago, of several whiskies, this one included, at a similar price. Then they started to stock it again within very little time.

Off to the big T we go. 🏻
I purchased this last time it dropped at Big T.
It's extremely fruity, so much so that I would probably sideline it as a Christmas tipple. It is also sweet, the colouring is indicative of the caramels and hint of char which lies beneath its fruitcake qualities.
It's a nice whisky, but very much an occasional dram rather than part of your regular line-up.
A bit like eating Christmas pud. (And don't tell me you just eat it at Xmas, I've seen you buy a cheeky individual one in September.).

Thanks for your assessment! I probably won't get around to trying this for a long time, I'm trying to get through my open bottles before starting anymore I'll save it for Christmas 2024

Beuatiful whiskey, they always put it on sale because I guess for some reason nobody wants to buy anything other than crap like JD
