    Ok, Edradour from the Ibisico decanter – that now stands for cola dark sherry soups. While a bottling bottled in January 2021 was still in color, this bottling from September 2021 is actually massively dark. Edradour knocks things out at high frequency, the base lists eleven of these sherry bottlings from the Natural Cask Strength series in 2021.

    • Nose
      How could it be otherwise - this is strong sherry. And it's strong alcohol. The sherry isn't sweet though, nor is it overly generic. There is dried fruit and it is the real dried fruit, not the soft version with glucose and preservatives. As a result, the prunes also bring an acidic moment and there are also spicy aromas that leave room for the special Edradour character. Then add some wood. Anyway, the flavor is good.
    • Taste
      Undiluted, the alcohol is too powerful and does not let the aromas through sufficiently. With a few drops of water it becomes more tolerable - but remains strong and has a decent amount of wood that irons out finer aromas. The fruits from the aroma are no longer present, and the slightly sour prunes are also missing. Instead comes bitter chocolate with nuts. What is also missing is the Edradour seasoning.
    • Finish
      It doesn't really stay on the palate for a long time. The chocolate fades away with increasing bitterness, some wood remains.

      Barrels are not good because they make a dark whisky. With this one, at least, the color is stronger than the aromas. It's a tasty whisky, it's also a drinkable whisky that doesn't last very long, which is why you're happy to refill the glass.

      What spoils the experience for me is the price. And it's the thought of better days when Edradour matured the whiskys properly and then had enough casks to compose the Fairy Flag 15 Year Old. Sure, the dark soups sell faster and better...
