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.

They are the first and only distillery in the world to use fresh nettles to smoke their whisky malt.
