About this single cask Fettercairn
Spiritfilled's second release in the series is an exciting one. We procured the cask from a private seller who has held the cask for over 30 years. With an outturn of 98 bottles, and at a cask strength of 48.6%, this whisky is an absolute winner. We didn't need to change anything about the profile of this single malt, it's been maturing in an ex-Bourbon hogshead since the filling in July 1989. You may also be interested in our third release, a 15 year old single cask Glenrothes.
About Spiritfilled's Mythical Beast, The Dryad
Deep in the beautiful forested green glens and groves of the Highlands stands a mighty oak. Strong and silent, it hides a secret, hidden in its core: a tree nymph, beautiful, shy and unique. The Dryad is deserving of our respect, with hidden strengths and beneficial supernatural powers, deeply connected to its Celtic roots, with an air of ancient timelessness. Our whisky reflects the smooth flowing power of this mythical being, in touch with Nature and the spirit of Scotland, housed in oak, flavoured with a hint of mystery and a timeless mystical quality.
