      A sherry nose to kneel down.

      sweet, Edradour's baby puke is almost gone, felt alcohol at most 48%, but a few drops of water still fit.

      The sherry sticks to the mouth for a long time, slight bitterness, How does it develop in the glass? No idea, already empty, is far too easy to drink.

    The bottler chose an excellent cask for this bottling. Here you get exactly what you would expect from a typical independent single cask bottling from Edradour. And what you love about them. Even though it was very drinkable with the relatively high alcohol content and actually doesn't need any water, it tasted much better with a few drops of water.

    • Nose
      Sherry, sherry and sherry! Even the high alcohol content can only be perceived in the background as a slightly cooling sensation in the nose behind this lush sherry aroma. Dark fruits such as overripe cherries, plums and (black)berries come with the sherry. Then I find nuts like roasted almonds, pistachios and marzipan. The feeling in the nose is not necessarily sweet, but rather an interplay between a slight sweetness and sour impressions. After a few minutes, a subtle spice is added - the barrel also makes itself felt.
    • Taste
      The impression of the nose is repeated on the tongue. I can't decide whether the start is more on the sweet or the sour side. Over time, the mouthfeel will definitely become significantly drier. The sherry is heavy on the tongue, I find the above mentioned fruits again, as well as now, stronger than in the nose, dried fruits like raisins and dates.
    • Finish
      The oak intensifies, bringing slightly bitter aromas of roasted coffee and baked cocoa. This feeling lingers throughout the long finish with a hint of sherry.

      With water:
      The sherry's veil lifts significantly. The aromas no longer seem so tightly packed and compressed. The impression on the nose becomes slightly lighter and sweeter. I no longer find mostly the ripe, dark fruits, but also candied fruits and apricots. It also changes its character in this direction on the tongue. The mouthfeel is simply more harmonious.

    Nose on brown sugar, plum over time the strawberry jam comes discreetly.
    Mouth in the vein, with wood coming and the alcohol that is felt, lack of finesse but it's still good

    The Dutch bottler van Wees released a whole series of single casks of Edradour in 2020, all of them at cask strength. Let’s put these head-to-head. This is a 9 years old from 2010, a single 1st fill sherry butt, at a strength of 56.8%!

    This is another one of those sherry bombs on the nose, but with a twist. While the obligatory dark fruit like raisins and plums (and to lesser extent cherries) are present, the nose of this Edradour is dominated by origin chocolate and freshly roasted coffee. The hint of rubber and menthol add an extra dimension. This nose is absolutely great.

    Good arrival, nicely sour versus sweet and spicy. Quite green, if you know what I mean. My only criticism: it burns. The alcohol is very present and not as well integrated it was in the sister casks (especially cask #391). Nevertheless, you can enjoy this without water and it’s quite good if you like this style. I do.

    The finish is medium long, dark & sweet and suddenly shows some molded wood.

    Another great Christmas dram, tasted in full summer for crying out loud.

    You get what to expect. The current Sherry monsters of the Edradour brand from van Wees also taste like the Sherry monsters from two or three years ago. As a reminder, I found the eight year old 2008 version (ID: 83779) a bit more harmonious. In order not to be misunderstood: This is a very good sherry malt and if you like the "Edradour sweetness", you will also love this variant.

    _With a little water_ the 2010 loses noticeably less heat, becomes rounder, "friendlier". Nevertheless, the sweetness remains dominant, the spicy aromas subside somewhat. Overall, very well adjustable with water to personal taste!

      At first smell unmistakably a "Sherry Monster Edradour"! Slightly artificial rubber sweetness - a small rubber dinghy in the lake in the late afternoon sun, in which four children drenched in sun milk romp - naturally, sherry flavors, a good portion of menthol. A tart note with marjoram and some damp barrel wood. The relationship to the 2008 Edradour by van Wees (ID: 83779) is really unmistakable. After a lot of time in the open glass, some cherry and plum come back. You get exactly what you can expect from these Edradour single cask sherry monsters. Which is by no means bad if you like it.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Ok, the 56.6% are already extremely present and heated. Behind it is the Edradour rubber sweetness. Half an hour of open breathing in the glass is also a blessing for the development of aromas in the mouth. Then the sherry, cherry and plum notes come through. The alcohol in the 2008 van Wees Edradour (ID: 83779) seemed a little better integrated. Whining at a high level. The barrel wort is of course also present, marjoram and lovage. Sherry monsters.
    • Finish
      89 89
      The medium length finish is expected at least on the spicy side. The barrel wort is captured well by the sweet aromas and complemented by the herbal notes. You get what to expect.
