Now it’s time to review this beauty from Fary Lochan
Reviewed whisky: Fary Lochan efterår batch 3
Some sweet dates and fruity notes from the sherry cask, quite smooth and friendly on the nose despite 48.3% abv. Furthermore it’s oily, some grass and Stinging tobacco that has just burnt.
Creamy and spices at first then a lot of dark red fruits.
After letting the dram sit for a while the light smoke is growing a bit.
Medium long finish with some spices and put out tobacco leafs without the distinct tobacco aroma.
Very pleasant and delicate dram, I like the light smoke and creamy component in it. The dram is very complex and I think the smoked fresh nettles combined with the sherry cask makes it very special.
Fary Lochan distillery knows what they are doing and I hope they continue to innovate!
My rating 90/100
Fary Lochan distillery was founded on the 18th of december 2009.
In 2019, Fary Lochan received the finest seal of approval when it was acknowledged by The Scotch Malt Whisky Society(SMWS).
The whisky was given the rare and exclusive “Premium” label by the SMWS, it’s the first distillery Denmark to receive this label.
Fary Lochan’s single malt whisky is distilled in original Scottish pot stills and only danish malt is used in their whiskies.
They are the first and only distillery in the world to use fresh nettles to smoke their whisky malt.
This Particular whisky is called Efterår which means autumn in english. It’s batch nr 3, this batch was filled 19 november 2013 in hogshead oloroso sherry casks and bottled 19 november 2019.
I have bottle #268 and a total of 535 produced bottles. The Efterår contains 1% smoked barley.
A review of this beauty is coming soon, stay tuned!

Fary Lochan Distillery is first and foremost a whiskey distillery that started in 2009 by Jens-Erik Jørgensen.
Today, the three siblings and their mother is running the distillery. The past years they’ve added more than only whisky to their production.
The development of other delicious products is for example their Gin. They’ve made all of their gin varieties light and fresh, so that they dress for every occasion and gathering.
The Classic Gin includes citrus and cucumber which gives a fresh and pleasant scent and taste that will send you on holiday thoughts at the first tear.
The mild taste allows this gin to be easily drank clean or in a tonic or lemon drink.
I’ll do a review or cocktail-tip about this gin soon!
