  1. wisekyofcourse scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    nose:
    on heavy sherry, crushed dry nuts, fine and peppery spices, characteristic rianço with noble moss, black fruits (and not only for the color of the juice!)
    mouth:
    honey, caramelized, toasted, cooked fruit on fig, dried white grapes, candied cherry, all macerated
    dark chocolate, spices on nutmeg, turmeric, a woody return soaked with shavings, a little leather, the peel of grape skins, sherry already intense in view of the 10 years, slight bitterness on the sweet almond in return
    final:
    long, monolithic on the same scents with woody, toasted, sherry, macerated fruits, mold that remains on the tongue, grainy, spices very present. simple but very effective for a classic sherry butt!

    Sherry through and through (I personally don't like the musty notes of this malt).
    In the taste then again full sherry pot. For me, however, it tends to turn into a rather sour coffee grounds note.
    If you are into sherry bombs, this is the right place, there is also enough to discover ... if it weren't for the price. Get a sample first.
    The malt isn't bad, but it doesn't knock me off my feet either - I'm a little torn; Sample is enough for me in this case.
    [86 - 82 = good whisky -> get a second bottle? Perhaps...]
    • Nose
      86 86
      Sherry aromas are immediately present: raisins, dark plums, brown sugar, forest berries and earthy notes of moist, mossy forest floor.
      musty notes from musty wine cellars (some like to call it Edradour "funk").
      leathery, damp tobacco and old, glazed solid wood cabinet; Maggiekraut and similar spices also appear - but with a little delay.
      Over time, even vanilla, caramel and toffee.
      It looks sweet on the nose, but not sweet as well as "heavy" and "massive".
    • Taste
      87 87
      very gentle to the touch, almost viscous. Spice builds up with a delay and brings the typical sherry aromas from the nose with it.
      Something dark fruity is present, but the sherry irons this fruit component away very quickly - a shame.
      [Yes, it's a sherry butt, what should you expect ... nevertheless, a few more fruit components from the distillate could still be left]
      It looks a bit less sweeter than on the nose, although it settles down quite quickly and the dull sherry aromas take over.
      At the same time it turns into a bitter dark chocolate.
      The tongue is overloaded with oak tannins.
      Second sip: even more sherry aromas spread, I add something nutty and bring even more bitterness (walnut skin). There is also an orange liqueur, which also has bitter tannins.
      Third sip: the sherry aromas and the dark chocolate moment tipping over into a sour coffee pomace aroma
      (It's not a bad grade for me now, but personally I still don't find it exhilarating).
    • Finish
      84 84
      Sherry and oak tannins stick to the tongue for a long time. It gets a little drier at the back.
      Sherry flavors stay in the mouth for a very long time; The nutty aromas and dark chocolate also come to the fore more and more.

    These Edradours are usually good, but some are great. This fits the latter category ror me. A great sherry bomb, that works well, if you can get past the initial soy-beefstock-maggi-funk.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Typical Edradour “funk“ - damp leaves, chocolate, and beef stock. Where does Andrew Symington get all these sherry casks? Is there such a thing as blue berry honey? Bold brew coffee? It certainly ticks a lot of boxes here. Nice!
    • Taste
      91 91
      Sweet and savoury, salted caramel, black forrest fruit, and chocolate sauce. Orange liqueurs mingles with melted caramel - Interesting mix of fruity and sweet.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Medium-long. Sweet aromatised tea, reminding me of a berry infusion. Then at last some tannin-inducing mint chocolate.
