    easy drinking party drug
    direct from a coffee cup

    far far away from what makes me love malt

    [March, 2021] After many very old, complex and (of course) excellent drams over the course of the last days I am in the mood for a rather simple and young drink tonight and so I selected this sample...

    ...and it was quite a while ago I had my last Edradour. I never really liked the profile of this distillery which is not a problem with this dram because there is almost no distillery character to discover in this designed "sherrsky". To be honest, I prefer any glass of a good sherry wine over this dram (which is much cheaper, too).
    • Nose
      80 80
      The colour is russetmuscat and the nose offers a dirty modern sherry profile with lots of sour winey notes (which come from the young, unmatured wine used to season the casks) and very few malt-driven aromas, if any at all. This is the trademark nose of a modern "sherrsky" and it is almost irrelevant which spirit is used to extract the sherry out of the wood. Nothing left that I could associate with Edradour which is not a pity because I am not a fan of this distillery's profile anyway. But if you like to sniff high-proof young wine this nose perfectly suits your expectations.
    • Taste
      82 82
      The taste is young wine, young wine, young wine, some wood, young wine, some barley sugars, young wine, young wine and so on... Worthless to invest any efforts to explore this dram, what can you find if nothing is there? Do not get me wrong, this is easy drinkable and far away from "spittoon's stuff". This is just not single malt whisky, it is high-proof young wine (not even sherry, because the wine never saw a solera not even for a minute). By the way, I will finish this sample and I will even enjoy it for its winey taste (I just need to skip the illusion I have a malt whisky in my glass).
    • Finish
      80 80
      The dram arrives without lasting impressions on the palate with neither a warming nor any coating effect, this is a weak mouthfeel (coming from a poor oiliness of the spirit, hence the distillation was either rushed or output-maximised). Correspondently, the finish is of almost no existence and short as a lightning. Just some sweet sherry flavours stay a little bit longer but they do not taste like whisky at all, rather like ordinary low-quality sherry wine. Water does not change a lot, just the alcoholic power is reduced and if you add a bigger splash the dram really smells and tastes like (young) sherry wine.

    I think the 90 points and more ratings are completely ridiculous. This malt is completely overloaded and has nothing whatsoever to do with whisky. Sherry with 46% is more likely. I can also imitate this with neutral alcohol and a bottle of sherry. But that comes to me much cheaper ...

    Bold and dirty, that was not a clean sherry cask. By contrast, every Longrow is a gentleman in a tuxedo ...
    On the plus side: good body, aromatic and good volume.
    Me personally - pure - too dirty and a lot of rubber. Since I like the parallel tasted barrel # 74 from 2005 a tick better. Qualitatively for me both are in par.
    Water leaves the rubber at least slightly recede, the whisky is a little cleaner.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Dense and compact. Dirty, earthy, clear gum note, the other flavors but noticeably covered. Dunnage Warehouse, raisins, black bread, a few fir needles. Dark chocolate. Ordinary depth.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Full and full. Clear gum, dirty. Sweetish, coffee, lots of blockade, caramel, dates, raisins, a hint of ginger.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Here again noticeable rubber and rich sherry aromas. Rather flat and short.

  5. Joschbert scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    The entrance betrays the still small age and is a little too impetuous and keen.
    However, the development towards the exit compensates for it and even brings along a certain complexity. To recognize distillery influences, I know Edradour too little. Great intensity. Absolutely recommended for the issue price. He quickly loses water.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Sour berry notes and hints of wine vinegar. Significantly sherry with sulfurous wood flavors.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Starts with a slight spiciness and some grappa.
      Suddenly dry nutty sherry takes over and brings (undiluted) wonderful coffee notes accompanied by dark fruits.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Dusty oak and lots of dried fruit. Pleasant dryness with Brazil nuts and cherries. A little like sucking an apricot kernel.

  6. Macallan1968 scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Sherry, sherry, sherry without end, with each sip more and better! Very sweet and long finish with Amarena cherries, then a bit nuttier but no bitterness - what a great dram for little money!

  7. LordBellamy scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    with water: he gets along with water, hardly loses, but he remains harsh and inharmonious

    Conclusion: Okay for lovers of dirty sherry malts, but unfortunately the harmony is missing here
    • Nose
      84 84
      strong sherry, toffee, plum, earthy, tobacco, dz. smoke, some flowery soap, toast, some rubber, alcohol is quite strong, seems restless, dirty and harsh
    • Taste
      85 85
      more balanced than the nose, dark sherry, plum, raisin, nuts, wood
    • Finish
      84 84
      medium to short, sherry, wood, soapy at the end, flowery, dry cocoa

  8. Don Cassi scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    The nose starts out very herbaceous and earthy with plum jam and some dark caramel, looks very barrel-dominated, but the whisky is still recognizable.

    In the mouth it is beautifully full and fruity with a slightly sour note, which continues in the finish and is supported by dark wood and chocolate notes. This is followed by some pepper and nutmeg.
    Length: 5/10

    Nice, sherry dominated but not too complex malt with good PLV.

    Grade: 2+

    Once again an extremely dark Edradour, young and drowned in sherry, interchangeable and yet somehow tasty and tasty, just one of these many dark soups from Signatory or Edradour ....

    22/22/22/22 (88P)
    • Nose
      Light copper with a reddish shimmer in the glass, oily streaks on the glass wall, from the premium snifter there is a clumsy intense orange aroma with dried berries. Caramelized sugar and grapes, dates and plums, dried fruits end in a minimal hint of sulfur. Velvety vineyard peach and pleasant muff and mold, hints of leather and tobacco, crumbs of dark chocolate, cherries and hazelnuts ...
    • Taste
      Sweetness flashes briefly, then acidic fruit flavors pour over the tongue, followed by vineyard peach and leather, tobacco and rotten wooden elements, sulphurised raisins, rubber grind and metallic youth. Dark sherry dominates the taste, minimally peppery pungency on the tongue, dark chocolate and lukewarm espresso exude their bitter note.
    • Finish
      Sweet and fruity, musty with hints of sulfur and decayed wood, hazelnuts and dark chocolate. The aftertaste is remembered for a long time, hazelnuts and wet leaves stick to the tongue, chocolate and raisins ...

  10. Silversoul scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Still have to see a distillery presenting a 10 years old with this character, taste and transparency, doesn't get 89 for being a youngster, but a very tasty one, Edradour is getting on my top favorite sherry bombs.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Dry sherry on the nose, greasy, heavy and creamy, roasted walnuts. Cherries on the background.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Big arrival, oxidized oak compounds, dark forest berries, the youth holds the sherry not being to boring or flat. Lacks a bit of complex tertiary aromas but it is still outstanding.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Fresh, creamy, lingers with no harm, moreish.

    Beautiful sherry bomb, for fans of the distillery determines a great droplet. The distillery character does not catch me completely, mainly because of the strange echoing sound. PLV: good to good
    • Nose
      88 88
      Beautiful ripe sherry notes, dates, tobacco, light sweetness, nutty flavors. Active small barrel.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Pleasant mouthfeel, the alcohol is still well integrated despite the dilution to 46%.
      Tobacco, vanilla sweetness, dark fruit flavors, dates, plums, dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium long, not particularly intense on the palate, some oak, sweetness and nutty elements remain.

    Solid sherry part. Alcohol not perfectly integrated. Otherwise the typical aromas, not too complex but extremely tasty. coffee on the finish.
    Better than the new "black editions"

  15. wncvirus scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nose: sherry, a dose of fruit and a slightly bitter touch

    Taste: Light taste without any depth. Of course, full sherry dominance with the addition of sheep and coffee. Sometimes, raisins and a slight bitterness appear in the background

    Rating 87|100 A short finish with a slight odor.

  16. grinface scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Not bad at all. Bread and berries and also some dirty notes. The finish has chocolate an orange. Full review (in German): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2019/12/23/alles-die-gleiche-suppe/

    Short Comparison between Cask 80 (WID: 131913) and Cask 49 (WID: 136409)

    At the Cask 80, the sherry has the command. The red fruits are rather fresh. In addition I have a certain artificial sweetness in it. Something like cocktail cherries. The so often perceived by me soapy notes at Edradour are more floral notes.
    Cask 49, on the other hand, is taking a different route. Pretty harsh. Lots of tobacco, coffee, black bread, and oak. After the first sip then some fruits mix and it comes through a bit of sweetness. From time to time I even have something like incense.

    Two quite different malts.
    Cask 80 is clearly marked by Sherry and Caks 49 clearly by the wood.

    Cask 80 is more in the easy direction. Not a bad malt. For me, but nothing for hypen. But I'm not that much a fan of relatively young sherry bombs anyway.

    The Cask 49 is significantly heavier, heartier and far less fruity. For me, this is a bit too dull. There is something missing the finesse. That too is nothing that I need as a big bottle.

  18. domani scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Sweet and full of sherry flavors. Do not be surprised, he's pretty much overrun with sherry. The older bottlings I like better, is also no whisky for me to experiment with water - 04.10.2019
    • Nose
      First, the typical soy-aromatic Edradour note, large portion of sherry, roasted malt, pumpernickel, roasted pine nuts, dried wood, brown sugar, purple grapes
    • Taste
      Creamy, block malty, ginger, dried fruit, raisin, blackberry, leather, woody-aromatic, with roasted aromas at the end
    • Finish

  19. Pauci scored this whisky 71 points Expert Senior

    This is no longer whisky. Sherry with 46% turns is better. No wood and no malty and nothing else except sherry.
    If you feel like it, then you can drink it, but it has nothing to do with whisky at all.
