  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    a successful "debut work", young but round whisky with a few edges that knows how to please. Honestly, I find the sherry notes almost a bit out of place, although I can not say whether they are only responsible for the cardboard notes, or even for the beautiful honey notes. The price is unfortunately rather unacceptable for pure enjoyment.
    • Nose
      sweet notes of honey, a nice spice, bright fruits, green apples, citrus, but also a slightly musty cardboard / wood note, maybe the sherry, which does not show itself so dominant.
    • Taste
      surprisingly strong, fresh, sparkling, citrus notes, a beautiful firmness, tart, astringent, always with the honey notes in the game.
    • Finish
      Here comes again the light cardboard note, musty sherry, but also some pine needles, bitter-sweet, fruity, citrus, sparkling. At the end of the long finish, the sherry shows up.

  3. Don Cassi scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    It is malty, dusty and slightly sweet in the glass, accompanied by hints of nuts and some leather. Discreet pear skin lies in the background.

    Slightly tingling and sweet and sour in the mouth.

    In the finish, a chocolatey oak note spreads over elegant sherry notes and a handful of nuts. A subtle wood spice lays over everything.
    Length: 4/10

    Interesting bottling, which unfortunately cannot quite hold its own with the expectations of the sherry paper form.

    Grade: 2

    I tasted this whisky blindly.

    I struggled with the evaluation.
    The nose gave me the fruity sweetness, blackberry and cherry first came to my mind, placed in a rum pot with a lot of red wine in it.

    The dram felt completely different on the tongue. It got peppery, the alcohol content came through a bit too much, in addition to the sweetness there was oak and a light earthiness.
    The sherry influence is definitely there, the octave part does the rest.
    Nose: 23
    Key: 21
    Finish: 20
    Total package: 20
    = 84
    Conclusion: I wouldn't buy it now, somehow it wasn't really coherent, the nose was still the most interesting there.

  6. ARDBERG scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Too much PX dominated. Otherwise ok for a 3 yo. I am sure this dram would benefit greatly from a higher strength.

    Time was beneficial as well - it trended towards the sweet PX Bunnas, which astucall is not a bad thing - if you like sweet PX...

    Well, could have been better, could have been worse...

    At a New Scottish Distilleries Tasting...

    surprisingly good, I like it with these honey and herbal notes,
    The nose is very complex and there are always new notes
    • Nose
      dark caramel, sherry, slightly dry touch / glue, tart honey (acacia?) but really fat !!!, dark chocolate, browned apple, fresh oak
      later: sweetness, spicy oak, brown herbs, hay, slightly vanilla, light beer
    • Taste
      soft and oily on the palate
      green herbs, herbal drops, menthol, green cold bath (with herbs), caramel comes, malt comes, oak becomes more, spicy
      later: easy hay
    • Finish
      medium to long
      spicy and becomes more, oak, sherry comes, becomes astringent, slightly astringent

    A pretty promising experience for a three-year whisky. I look forward to continuing ...
    • Nose
      Herbal, hay, caramel, coffee cream or coffee filling.
    • Taste
      Gentle, without much burning alcohol. Vanilla, white pepper, pear, radish.
    • Finish
      Short and bland. Tannins.

    The Eden Mill Single Malt 2018 Release is the first in an annual series which will build over the coming years. We thought it was only appropriate to release this whisky on St Andrews Day.

    The 2018 Release represents the ultimate blend of some of the best 'honey' casks our distilling team have chosen.

    The golden-amber expression comes from a mix of golden promise and propino barley strains and represents the ultimate blend of some of the best ‘honey’ casks Eden Mill’s distilling team have chosen.

    Young casks have been selected, varying in both size and style including, four of the finest Olorosso Sherry hogsheads, four outstanding ex-bourbon first fill American standard barrels and a few exceptional octave barrels which previously held Pedro Ximinez sherry.

    The whisky is presented in a premium crisp, white box – perfect for those looking to add to their whisky collection this festive period.

    There will be only 3,200 bottles of this special liquid bottled. We know that demand will be far greater than that but we did not want to compromise on quality for quantity. For that reason we have to limit the numbers purchased to 2 per person.

    We do hope this bottling will be the beginning of an exciting journey for whisky drinkers with Eden Mill Single Malt whisky.
