    A mix of high cocoa content dark chocolate orange stick and semi-dried dark fruits..

      I'm afraid this whisky need some water, and more air. But let's sniff it neat first. A faint hint of red berry floating above a bed of slab sugar, neither was prominent. With time, there's mint, lime zest and ground nutmeg, with buttered white bread at the back. All good and solid, and gave a calm, soothing feeling. Let it breathed longer, there came dried apricot, dried mango...
      Water revealed more pencil shave, wood and old books.
      Only a strong sniff would uncover the beautiful flowery aroma underneath.

      Neat: one could feel the strength of the ABV but it's pleasantly not astringent. Nimm2 candy spoke out loud, coupled with semi-dried, moist dark fruits. Quite good a combination. When these're finished, there came caramel and flake of heavily toasted bread.
      With water: rounder, the dark fruits disappeared, but sweeten lime juice appeared, somehow spoiled by the oaky bitterness. Nice but not intriguing overall.

      The finish was long, and was a combination of dark roasted coffee and petal infused water.

    A decent Edradour but not as good as a 2 year younger bottle that I tasted recently, which is disappointing.

    This seemed to be missing a few of the darker, fruitier notes and was not quite as well balanced.

    It did have a quite different oily, slightly waxy vibe (which I enjoyed) instead of the sticky jam of the 10 year old, but otherwise it did share a lot of obvious dna in its dark chocolate and oak tannins.

    Honestly, I don't think I'm quite there with Edradour.

    Ballechin clicked immediately, but I'm still finding this standard distillery expression a bit hit and miss as to whether it will fully connect with what my palate is currently aligned to.

    I'll give them a break and come back to them in a few weeks. I can't count the amount of whiskies I've not liked and eventually revisited, only to discover it's my new favourite thing ever.

    And it's not even as though I didn't like this, it was just comaratively not nearly as fun as my last Edradour.
