Whisky Reviews for Edradour 2005

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.41 points

  1. Gris scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Notes from whiskynotes.be:

    Nose: very rich, not unlike some of the best GlenDronach casks. Entirely on Cherry Heering, raisins and dates. Great hints of leather chairs, cedar wood, a little pipe tobacco. Whiffs of jamón ibérico and roasted almonds. An overt sherry bomb, clean and intense. Mouth: quite strong, with a chewy mouthfeel and massive flavours. Leafy, almost earthy sherry with plenty of spices, balanced by the fruity sweetness. Blackberry jam and blackcurrants, caramelized apples, cooked plums and flashes of oranges. Ginger and caraway seed. Tobacco and leather again. Great sherry flavours coupled to the power of a big American rye. Drying herbs and liquorice towards the end. Finish: long, spicy and chocolaty, with walnuts, cinnamon and drying oak.

    A real sherry bomb, nothing delicate about this. One of the better examples of this style I’ve had lately, and the best Edradour ever for me. You can get it from The Whisky Exchange.
