    Not bad Mister Specht! The color promises the full sherry droning, the nose flattens off a bit, the taste of the dark soup is "interesting" and very peculiar. Dark fruit notes, furniture polish and a lot of pepper and salt provide variety, the aftertaste sticks in the mouth for an extremely long time and stimulates the salivation again even after minutes ... Tastes great!
    Edit: Actually I wanted to give this bottling 89 points, the longer the aftertaste lingers in the mouth, but the result is an extremely greasy base note which forces me to deduct points. Decent 88 points ...

    • Nose
      Black as night, stale cola, mahogany, the color in the Premium Snifter suggests an extremely active or wet barrel. While a multitude of oily streaks and syrupy "legs" adhere to the glass wall, furniture polish with dark hazelnuts rises timidly. Sulphurized raisins play with sweet caramel, grated dark chocolate are combined with orange juice and a few drops of cherry juice, hints of spicy wood and dried mint, meadow herbs and a hint of Christmas spices, the alcohol is wonderfully gently integrated.
    • Taste
      The Edradour flows thinly over the tongue, tart wood tones and echoes of furniture polish are added, suddenly a load of pepper explodes on the tongue and stimulates the flow of saliva. Dark, dried berries combine with chocolate and salty caramel, mint refreshes the palate powerfully while mandarins and oranges come into their own. Slowly the sharpness fades, herbs and toffee appear creamy, mentholic freshness burns a bit on the palate and stimulates the flow of saliva again.
    • Finish
      Raisins and oranges stick creamy on the palate, menthol and mint still refresh the entire mouth, hazelnuts and salted peanuts appear slightly greasy and buttery. With a touch of furniture polish, the aftertaste ends slowly and greasy ...

    There's not much left for Edradour, which I personally don't think is bad, that's really a sherry board, which is what you expect with the color, so you get what you buy and do it properly, no missing notes, it's fun to drink.
    • Nose
      The color is not misleading, it comes in bold sherry, raisins, chocolate, everything very dense, you can almost taste it, some wood, a slight minty overtone, sweet, the deeper you smell into it, the spicier and woodier it becomes, and above it is a beautiful one creamy sherry note, gets better and better in the glass over time
    • Taste
      oily, also here directly sherry, raisins, sweet, espresso, slightly nutty, dark, also here mint and thus freshness, good mouthfeel, the 46% is completely enough, you have to smack your lips
    • Finish
      Sweet, sticky, cotton candy, nuts, grape peel, such as mint, medium length, after the brilliant start a little thin on the back

    Christmas pudding in a bottle, anyone? Spicy: Nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, gingerbread...and of course there's a full, round body wrapped in sherry. Yummy...

    Not the most intensely sherried (even if it is a 'sherry bomb') of the Signatory Edradour sherry bombs, but this one has that lovely spicy goodness well built in. What a bargain! Would I have loved to see this at the age of 20 years? YYEEESSSS....

    Understandably, this Edradour cannot quite match the intensity of the bottlings of the same age. The fruity sweetness also comes through very nicely in the nose with 46%. A little thick in the glass.
    • Nose
      Full and set, a lot of sweet and spicy molasses with a fine note of dark vinegar or Worcestershire sauce, dark dried fruits, oak, nice floral-fruity and musty with Christmas spices
    • Taste
      Strong, tart, spicy and oily, brown sugar with lots of dark dried fruits and roasted aromas, fruity sherry, oak
    • Finish
      Tart spices, sweet, light dryness, oak
