Whisky Review #71 Edradour 10yo ‘Straight From The Cask’ 57.3%

Finally time for another review, and this time i’ve tried whisky from what I believe to be Scotlands smallest distillery, Edradour, located in the south of the highland region. This specific bottling was drawn from a single sherry butt(#530) that gave 984 bottles in total.

Distilled: 2001, Bottled: 2012

Nose: Sweet, honey, baked red apples and Bounty(coconuts and chocolate). With water it becomes a little more dusty, and the coconut disappears. More red fruits and vanilla with time.

Palate:  BIG, rich, malty with a wild burst of alcohol. Quite spicy, not as sweet as expected.. dries the palate in the finish. Water brings out caramel sauce and vanilla icecream. Delicious stuff indeed. The finish is loong, warm and spicy. Almost sugarcaney?

Very much a lively whisky! Straight forward, clean and honest.

86/100 points
