    Tasty and extremely voluminous! This dark Edradour is an extremely intense sherry board, but shows more of its wooden and bitter side. although sweetness flashes again and again I miss the dark fruity sherry flavors. A delicious and tasty malt, rich and voluminous.

    • Nose
      The Edradour mahogany-colored shimmers cloudy and rust-brown in the Premium Snifter. Extremely long and oily "legs" stick to the glass wall, and a sticky streak decorates the upper area of my nose glass. At the first nosing there is minimally a hint of sulfur, dark fermented grapes and berries mix with burnt sugar and a musty vaulted cellar. Sweetness rises, rubbing off of dried orange peel follows, menthol freshness ripples through the nose while sulphurated raisins exude their tart bouquet. Juniper and lovage follow the dark sherry aromas, the nose looks a little "meaty", more and more spices and herbs appear. Tart wood tones and cold espresso appear minimally, gradually the salivation starts ...
    • Taste
      Spices and tart wood tones mix with pine needles and resin at the first sip, a load of white pepper spreads suddenly over his tongue and heats the palate. My flow of saliva is almost unchecked, zests of old oranges fall into espresso, dark chocolate with chilli melts in my mouth. Tart, almost bitter wooden elements swim under the tongue, menthol and eucalyptus refresh the inside of the cheeks. The next sip flows creamy over the tongue, chubby warmth lines the palate again, the initially subtle heat sparks more and more, pepper and chilli massage the tongue, spices and herbs exude their dark aroma, a chewed juniper berry spreads on the palate, minimally burnt wood tones appear, at the same time hints of fly ash are distributed in the mouth.
    • Finish
      Dark wood tones rest oily and greasy in connection with an extreme spice note on the palate. There is a slightly smoky mouthfeel, tart wood notes mix with pine needles and resin. This dominant spice note, from which juniper and lovage are released, still sticks to the palate and tongue. Slightly rotten wood elements follow, the mouthfeel becomes increasingly greasy and creamy, sulphurised raisins end in caramelized sugar and a hint of dark chocolate. The intense aromas only slowly fade away after what feels like an eternity.

    Sulphur bomb, yuck, yuck. Don't be deceived by the color, this one is nasty.

    Boxing Day

    Only a few months ago I tried sister cask #395 which I dubbed Christmas Dram. Thanks to a friend in Budapest, Hungary, I was able to secure a sample of cask #354 that was bottled just a month prior to this one.

    Sister cask indeed, so it comes as no surprise that this one reminds me of Christmas as well. Christmas cake, walnuts, chocolate… the works. Again a delicious nose, let’s keep this one for second Christmas Day or – as the English speaking folks so eloquently put it – Boxing Day.

    I think this one is just a tad better on the palate. Next to some bittersweet marmalade of blood oranges and candied sugar, I also get fresh fig and candied ginger. Quite good!

    The finish is feisty on nutmeg, candied ginger and even cloves, which not only makes it last long, but also supports the fruitiness until the death.

    This is one to put on the table on 26th December, then. Delicious. Thank you, András.

    OK. This is not the nice sweet Edradour you would expect. It looks a bit peaty, but I find it difficult to attribute this clearly to the fire. The barrel is idiosyncratic and brings special notes. And maybe suggests the peat. In any case, unexpectedly and honestly, I have my problems with the soapy note.
    • Nose
      The nose is surprisingly different from other bottlings in the range, sweet and sherry-heavy, but spicier with a hint of peat ... Or barrel? Smoke.
    • Taste
      In the mouth, it becomes slanted. Spicy, very soapy, sherry and barrel. To be honest, almost a little bad marks.
    • Finish
      Tart, spicy, oak on the finish, here too the soapy note.

    This particular cask seems to have an interesting smokiness in the background. It is most notable in the finish accompanied by tartness. On the nose, it's more understated as it blends into the roasted malty aromas.
    I'd be curious to know whether some Ballechin spirits got mixes in at some time (my guess). Or did the some come from the cask/previous content?

  10. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Great part. Had to stick to me hard, otherwise I would have shot the sample away too quickly.
    • Nose

      Holla the forest fairy ... cool.
      Maggi and soup stock cubes. Really meaty and with gravy. Juniper berries and a dry smoky note. Some tobacco and menthol. Here I am again with a pinch of snuff. Tart leather. I'll let it stand…
      With a little time in the glass, the colleague gets dirty. Rust remover spray, oil, earth and dirty herbs. But there is also a sugary sweetness. Has something sugared raisins. Just got some burnt cherry pie. Wonderful ... I have to try it now.
    • Taste
      Very spicy, pithy start. Ashy, dry smoke. Again the herbs and juniper berries. Tastes dirty and greasy. The gravy is then included again. In it some cherries and rosemary. The tobacco is more in the background. There is also a sweetish wax note. Roasted malt and a subtle dark beer taste. Class …
    • Finish
      Medium to long. First dry, spicy and with ashy smoke. Then comes the sweet wax and covers the mouth.
