Fettercairn 16 Years - 2nd Release

This Fettercairn is the second bottling of the 16 year old. But apart from its age and alcohol strength the 2nd release has nothing in common with the first one: After its maturation in Ex-Bourbon, the Malt was finished in first-fill and refilled Oloroso and Palo Cortado Sherry casks. Palo Cortado is a type of Sherry, that is created when Sherry unintendedly develops into Olorosos during cultivation. It is considered a rare delicacy. Even the design of the bottle is special: The ring around the bottleneck and the engraving on the shoulder of the bottle are showing the speciality of the distillation with the outer cooling. Even today the company carries the unique logo of the white unicorn.
