- That's something else. No gentleman !! He definitely fits a cigar because he has power. Seasoning seasoning and seasoning. Campfire smoke and mulled wine. Pepper and cherries with cinnamon. Great dram. My best Scot in 2019
- Spicy and intense, in addition incredibly velvety and creamy. The combination of smoke and red wine barrel gives this ballechin a special character and an idiosyncratic aroma. Tastes and pleases!
Dark copper shines reddish in the glass while a viscous streak has formed on the glass wall. The dark grape aroma rises heavily from my Premium Snifter, a subtle peat and smoke note is added at the beginning, hints of wet tobacco and leather stick to the nose, gradually the smoke and peat note becomes more intense and "intrusive". Dark grapes and berries, grilled strawberries and apricots, a hint of wet herbs and burnt sugar. Zest of old oranges, slightly salty with a pinch of white pepper, tobacco and leather become more intense, the smoky note comes out more and more.
The first sip flows velvety and creamy through the mouth, peppery sharpness and mineral smoke immediately stick to the tongue, sweet fruit notes emerge, as well as hints of salty caramel with wet tobacco leaves and damp leather. Zest from orange and grapefruit peels, sour cherries and an irresistibly gentle smoky note slowly stimulate the saliva. Fruit and sweetness play with smoke and dark, dirty earth tones, plus an alcohol content that is optimal in my opinion.
Velvety and creamy, spicy aromas stick to the palate and stimulate the flow of saliva again. Dark fruit, pleasant mineral smoke, of course, wet leather and wet tobacco leaves also come into their own in the aftertaste. With dried meadow herbs and a muted note of smoke, the aftertaste is sweet and creamy ...
- Great combination of a wine barrel with Edradour smoky distillate, there is smoke, there is tobacco, leather, sweet grapes, plums, candied orange. Very drinkable, that's my vibe
- Agree seconddram and whiskybayer absolutely too.
Especially with the reference to the cigar.
Really a delicious part. Fruity, light to medium smoky.
Well composed. Chapeau Edradour.
