  1. Glenjasper scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Great sherry bomb! And that for EUR 65.00.

    Very cute. The 59% are very well integrated in the only 9 year old whisky. Cherry, blackberry, blueberry, ripe raspberry, light oak. Dark chocolate and sherry again.

    Tried it with the 21 year old Glendronach. Ok, the 12 years difference was clearly noticeable and the complexity is a little lacking. But I don't know which whisky I would prefer.

    If there was still some smoke, I would have bought all the bottles.

    A great sherry bomb! Granted, the barrel is much more dominant than the distillery character, but that's the case with almost all sherry bombs, and yet we love them. What makes this malt special in my eyes are unexpected bright flavors that gradually reveal themselves behind the classic sherry flavors. Whether it has a slight sharpness in the finish, it is nevertheless round, complex and balanced.

      Intense, multi-layered and balanced. First, very dark, dry and spicy sherry aromas of dried figs, dates, prunes, blueberries, roasted nuts and cocoa. Over time, sweet and lighter flavors such as kiwi, lime freshly baked ciabatta and sliced cucumber reveal themselves behind it.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Sweetly round and astringent. Lots of dried fruit and fresh bread, memories of Christmas stollen are awakened. There are also fresh red fruits such as cherries, red grapes and raspberries. Plus bourbon vanilla, some shoe polish and earthy aromas. The oak wort underlines but is not dominant.
    • Finish
      90 90
      The finish is long, sweet and velvety but accompanied by a slight sharpness. In the end, dark fruits remain and at the very end the oak comes through and is stronger than expected.

    Simply great, more 'rough' than many sherried malts (in a good way).
    • Nose
      91 91
      Ashy, cooked fruits. Spiciness. Subdued marzipan and pastry (pie crust dough).
    • Taste
      91 91
      Powerful ripe, cooked, red fruits accompanied by nuttiness. Some more fresh fruits in te background, oranges.
    • Finish
      90 90
      The nuttiness coninues with the red ripe fruits. Oak becomes more prominent as the fresh notes subside.
      Fairly long.

    What a delicious edradour!

    Admittedly; somewhat skeptical beforehand; wouldn't it just be the hype about the color? with an excess of sherry tones? It won't be that good anyway .. Oops .. so it is.

    Even compared to the # 393, which unexpectedly won over these (subtle differences). Especially on the nose and finish.

    Also compared to an edradour 2009 vw .. that was not a fair match ..
    • Nose
      Dried fruits, plums, cherries, some chocolate with rosemary. Marzipan. The alcohol disappears in the harmony, a nice rough harmony.
    • Taste
      Beautifully smooth and round, dried fruit with cherries still leading the way. Nuts come in between. Orange, cloves in the background.
    • Finish
      Long gradual finish, a subtle dance of red fruits and nuts. Also here the fresh fruit (orange) comes into play. What a pleasure!

  5. Whiskyblower scored this whisky 96 points Expert Senior

    Great sherry barrel. after the alcohol is gone, a crazy sweetness. Almost like liqueur. Light wood taste. Dark, ripe, sweet fruit. Terrific sherry aroma for under € 70. I'm still going to be an Edradour fan

    One of the whiskys that taste just right, really good, but do not invite you to discover them.
    • Nose
      Hmm, as I like it, a lot darker, heavier, luscious, sweet sherry, both a bit too dominant and intense, because the smoke in the middle part hardly has any space. Alcohol, however, is well integrated and a well-rounded affair, therefore a tasty, if not mega complex, whisky.
    • Taste
      Like the nose. Alcohol is not as strong here as one would expect in terms of percentages and age. Another nice sherry sweetness and the smoke is not very present.

  7. 11insomnium scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Strongly sherry-charged barrel. Full and intense even after adding water. Great value for € 67.
    • Nose
      Sweet, brown sugar, full and dark dried fruits, lots of flowery and fruity sherry, spicy, oak
    • Taste
      Sweet, fruity, sherry, strong and spicy, oak, dry, dark chocolate
    • Finish
      Mainly dry oak, but still sweet

  9. wncvirus scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Lots of sherry, chocolate, milk elements
    Taste: Very intense flavor. red fruit, light oak, cherries. Pretty cool. despite the 59% alcohol really well hidden.
    Rating: 90 | 100. Medium long fruity finish. Interesting whisky because is only 9 years old and aroma is very strong !
