Fettercairn Fasque Review

Fettercairn Fasque My good friend Adrian (@mynameisgone) sent me this sample of Fettercairn Fasque.

I hadn't and still haven't tried a lot of whisky from this distillery over the years, a stable mate of Jura and Dalmore this highland dram is a bit of a forgotten brother in some ways.

Named for a country estate near to the distillery, Fasque is the unpeated regular bottling from Fettercairn. It is bottled at 42%, is NAS and is perfectly drinkable, it's nothing spectacular but also not a "bad" whisky. I'm sure there are many drams i would have before it on a night of choice, but i certainly wouldn't refuse one if offered.

Fancy trying it yourself? it's a decent price at just over £30 over at The Whisky Exchange

Thanks to Adrian (@mynameisgone) from Whisky Chronicle for the samples.
