N: lovely oranges, apples, honey, chocolate ( medium dark), some spices and roasted nuts it's all embedded in the typical Edradour notes: to me Old house, leather , tobacco, somehow earthy but not as intense as in other Edradour bottles) very balanced.
M/ D: starts sweet honey then apples and vanilla, coffe, notes, milk chocolate..slight sour (sour berries) and saltiness... nice mouthfeel great consistency alcohol perfectly Integrated.
F: Vanilla, old wood, spices ,ginger/pepper medium bitter and dry ( oak) - some berries coming back :) finish medium to long.
For a standard 12 that is constantly available I don't know any better if you like sherry layered whisky. It has some edges of course that not everyone seems to like - I do it's subjective and maybe it's good that it's not so mainstream ;)...for people who haven't tried this it's profile is best described as something between a mild Speyside malt and a Springbank malt - if you don't like this stay away from Springbank ( please stay away from Springbank). And BTW it takes water very well ( not too much) and time will also reward you.
