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.
