  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 79 points Super Administrator

    Based in Pitlochry and owned by independent bottler Signatory Vintage, Edradour remains one of the smallest distilleries in Scotland. Rich honey sweetness, heather and a diffuse flowery scent encounter the nose on first contact. Very nice, but obviously young. Something bothers me on the palate. It is neither the sweet maltiness, paired with oranges and spices, nor the soft and creamy character. There is something sharp and herbaceous that is hard to pin down. The finish is fairly short with honey and bitter nuts. Not a bad malt, but slightly disjointed.

    uuh. one of the worst whiskies I ever had. plastic, fake fruit esther & something I couldn't place my finger on (paper/cardboard...?). The only whisky related drinks I found more unpleaseant were some new spirits, and hey, they don't pretend to be whiskies.

    Got this as a presant off my wife, i've always wanted it and was gutted to find it very ordinary. A lovely distillery but not a lovely malt
    • Nose
      Floral and fruity and light on the body
    • Taste
      A warming taste with little bits of honey and almonds
    • Finish
      A little sweet and a little short

  4. Saftkenner scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    In terms of price, but still to wean off. This bottle is unlikely to make anyone a whisky lover. On the surface, these three words strike: sour, bitter, out-of-round.
    • Nose
      79 79
      Quite unbalanced sherry nose, very tart and slightly spicy. Cranberries, red wine, anise, cloves, blood orange, fermented pomegranate, damp leaves lying on the ground in autumn.
    • Taste
      79 79
      Watery and still spicy alcohol. Sour and bitter. The taste is otherwise an aromatic reflection of the nose.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Medium-length finish with clear tannins, some ash and grapefruit.

  8. tester1277 scored this whisky 78 points Expert Junior

    Very inconspicuous malt, something for beginners, as nothing really stands out.
    • Nose
      Sweet pleasant fruit, something
    • Taste
      creamy, soft, sweet
    • Finish
      long, dry, slightly bitter flavor

  9. The_Osprey scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Edradour 10yo, 40%. Aroma has bubblegum, Jasmine, floral yet fruity, woody bubblegum. Lavender. All sorts of esters really. Some sherry notes too. A full range suggesting fruits and flowers. Taste is soft up front. Medium weight and a balance of casks with a slight sherry dominance. Breathy and spicy over time. Nice cask quality. Not a huge amount if complexity but pleasant enough all the way through. Light background old bitter woodiness like one or two old third-use casks sneaked in among the good casks. Light impressions of gin randomly appear. Largely decent. Sort of a weird profile but on the whole I think 3.5/84 is a fair score.
