  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

    A solid standard bottling I always buy again. The latest bottlings are a bit darker then a few years back.

  7. Burch scored this whisky 79 points Member Senior

    Notes from 4/6/14:
    I counted ten times on the bottle they note Edradour as Scotland's smallest distillery.
    Nose: High-toned Champagne-like aroma but with a deeper sherry aroma.
    Palate: Thick and bold, distinct sweet coconut against a musky sherry - bit of an odd combo. Balance of flavors a bit off here.
    Finish: Like the palate but with better balance. Nice length.
    Water doesn't do any favors.

  8. Whisky Hamster scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    Still seems to undergo strong batch variations. Had my horror stories with Edradours over time (interestingly less so with Ballechins!), but a recent bottle of 10 I tried was pretty solid. Nothing to write home about but not worse than other entry level bottlings.
