    The 58% has to be diluted, then it's a great Edradour whisky

      Sweet, vanilla, oak
    • Finish

      Strong oak, warming, long-lasting too much alcoholic for my taste

  2. Whisky-Ex scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Tasting notes from an online tasting with 16 participants
    Pear, spices, almonds, vanilla and coconut
    Flowery on the nose, taste of caramel and chocolate
    it definitely has boom
    Nose: Sponge Cake with Banana?
    Creme brulee, yummy
    Taste, tongue a little narcotized, but soft, warm caramel notes with delicate spice flares up, a hint of toffee
    very nice whisky and amazing out of the house
    it's already delicious:
    with water it becomes flat
    Reverberation, becoming sweeter, but ending dry, spicy notes show up again, ending dry
    nice volume
    loses with water
    I like it better without water, it becomes a bit bitter with water and loses its complexity:

    Manufacturer information: Typical Edradour with vanilla, mandarin and coconut.

    I find the flavors. However, alcohol dominates. A few drops of water help miracles. Unfortunately, some depth is missing.
