    What the hell do you think you are knocking out those cola casks at Signatory? No comparison with cask # 50 and several other Eddies from the series that I already had.

    The alky-pricked nose is quickly forgotten after the first sip. Then there remains sulfur and the irresistible aroma of fresh mothballs. I recommend disposing of the whisky with a friend you are only so fond of.

    No idea what shady characters are up to mischief in the SV cellars, that a sherry cask whisky is darker than sherry itself and tastes like rat poison.

    I have now 4 open bottles of these excellent Edradour 10y Sherry Casks from Signatory and for me personally this is the best even if it is close to the cask 50 (which is not as dark but much more juicy than 43, 49 & 62)
    Close win for cask 62 nevertheless and money for value I think one of the best options in August 2019!
    If you need samples and want to compare, please write me a personal message!

    Ok, this is nearly September 2019. Whisky boom. This quality for €50 is incredible. I get a very peculiar milk note when sniffing this dram, then spices, tobacco, dark fruits and some smoke (funnily enough). All in all the nose is quite restrained but it's still as dark as the actual colour of the liquid. Taste is full - herbs (yes, a bit of Jägermeister on steroids like SecondDram said), but also again the dark fruits, spices, tobacco and a beautiful smoky finish. I think it's crazy good. Tastes a lot older than 10 years.

    Edit: bottle has been open for 2 weeks now - the milky note has more or less disappeared and when adding a few drops of water it gets a lot fruitier. Rating still the same though!

    Edit 2: had another dram yesterday (bottle open for a month and a half now), the onset has become a LOT sweeter. It's amazing how much this bottle keeps evolving.

    So, lots of hype surrounding these very dark 2009 Edradours! Wonder if it's not just the colour that's great. A few quick notes from a sample: On the nose a very dark impression too with a variety of dried fruits, wood, sage, leather, tobacco, cacao dusting, hazelnut, sultana, sawdust and a sourish yoghurt/milky note.

    In the mouth; dry as expected and the alcohol is prominent too, could use a bit more integration. Again that 'dark' impression with fruits such as apricot, raisin and kiwi. Chocolate pralines, so called cherry bonbons (don't know if that's a thing outside the Netherlands), oak, pistacchio and espresso. Not as layered as the nose, a little bitter and too oaky for my taste.
    The finish is dry and woody, with chocolate and a varnish/polish/whatever chemical note.

    A bit one-dimensional unfortunately, but good value for the original price (~€50). Edradour is pushing out these bottlings at a very rapid pace as I've seen at least 10? of these dark single casks in 2019. I blindly bought a few bottles of casks #49 and #58 last year, but I won't FOMO over these again.

    Based on a sample.

    A spicy, herbal and woody sherry bomb! Sweet and sour at the same time, unfortunately I miss in this bottling the fruity and sweet elements. Honestly, I expected more fruit, with the wooden side also having its charms.

    • Nose
      Deep dark mahogany shimmers in the glass, on the glass wall of my Premium Snifter glue long and viscous "legs". Hazelnuts and a hint of sulfur blend with dark, dried berries and grapes, chips of freshly sawn wood combine with lightly burnt sugar to create a sweet, tart nose. Appearances of sour cherries and plums follow, the alcohol is relatively mild and supple, slightly resinous are herbs and spices to advantage. Tannenreisig and Harz are repeatedly covered with sweet sugar, chocolate and dark sherry aroma slowly stimulate my salivation.
    • Taste
      The initial key is mild, which changes immediately and a brew of spicy oak, pine needles, resin, herbs and spices pours voluminous and pleasantly dry over the tongue. The second sip is harsh and wooden, dark berries and grapes combine with dark chocolate and espresso to an intense "brew". At the same moment a variety of herbs and spices explode on the palate and exude a plump warmth, the taste of this Edradour reminds me more of bittersweet and herbal liqueur. Subtle sharpness sticks to the tongue, tart wood tones run through the palate, chewed hazelnuts and sawdust leave associations with furniture polish and glaze. With each additional sip, the wooden and tart elements increase.
    • Finish
      Herb and dark stick furniture polish and spicy oak tones on the palate, pleasant sharpness in the form of white pepper tickling on the tongue, here and there flare dark, dried fruit flavors and caramelized sugar. Espresso and dark chocolate do the rest ...

    Edradour, 10 years old, barrel 62 from the Un-Chillfiltered Collection by Signatory. A guarantee for great sherry whiskys for an affordable price for some years now, even if it has increased by 20% since June 2018.

    This barrel is more on the spicy side, but it doesn't make it any less exciting. The variety of individual casks also allows such bottling and it deserves my recognition.
    • Nose
      88 88
      In the nose, the slightly sour Edradour note, followed by a spicy component, followed by a sherry note and dark fruits. The second time you smell it, the fruits are in the foreground: raisins, ripe plums, dried apricots, red currants, raspberries. A warm note of sandalwood with vanilla spreads in the glass. At the moment, the seasoning is rather cautious.
    • Taste
      88 88
      First a strong herbal note on the palate, very powerful, with fresh mint and white pepper, rosemary, light bitter tones, astringent. Then the sweetness sets in on the tongue and black currants penetrate to be immediately limited by a slight acidity and spice. Leather, tobacco, wood; This barrel is very complex and exciting and requires a little more time and attention.
    • Finish
      87 87
      The mint dominates in the finish for a long time. The palate looks fresh and herbal notes and light bitter tones remain on the palate before a soft sweetness appears in the back of the mouth.
      An exciting barrel that shows more the spicy side of the ten-year single barrel bottling from Edradour.

    Takes some time in the air to open fully. Charged barrel, however, the depth of the older age is missing. Fuller and darker fruits than Cask No. 6 (2019), but less fruitiness and sweetness.
    • Nose
      Spicy, dark dried fruit, more tart and less sweet, dried oak, sherry
    • Taste
      Tart and medicinal notes reminiscent of smoke, full, earthy, strong and spicy with a lot of oak
    • Finish
      Tart and dry oak

    Very dark, surprisingly dark for such a young age. This is the second time im tasting it and it seems a little different than first.
    Nose: Yup this is all about the heavy sherry,but balanced. plums, prunes, sultana. nutmeg cinnemon, cloves. Christmas cake, old leather, cigarbox

    Taste : arrival is sweet and savoury, old wood, sweet sherry. pungent yet creamy and retaining a nice balance. certainly a sherry bomb which ill admit im a fan off.

    Finish. More dry and bitter than anticipated. Stewed tea, herbal and toasted with aniseeed, fennikel and salt licorice. Cloaked in pungent spices.

    Very nice value
