  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 79 points 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

    This one has actually improved over the years, it seems to me. I guess the batches vary heavily.

      The aroma is sweet and quite complex, you can take a long breath and constantly open new notes. At the beginning of the tree, vanilla, sweet. When you take a deep breath, chocolate, coffee, spices, and smoked meats appear. Sometimes it seems to me that I smell tobacco, then this feeling disappears and I cannot recover it.

      The taste is a little sweet but tart. Sun dried fruits, nuts, wood ... a little paint or varnish.

      Aftertaste long warm and sweet right after sip. Coffee with milk and sugar. A little later, a palpable bitterness appears in the center of the tongue, as if from wormwood, gradually it conquers the sweetness and fills the entire mouth. This bitterness spoils the overall impression a bit.

    I like! I'm a bit baffled by the poor ratings ... (78 on average ?!?)

  7. dongolzo81 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Blind tasting:
    Nose: sweet, coffee, dark caramel, baking plums, dates, everything a little fleeting
    Flavor: initially very mild, then delayed intensive seasoning with nuts, clear sherry barrel,
    Finish: medium length with nice sweetness and balanced spice
    Since my wife gave me the tip that it wasn't a Speysider, I bet on Edradour
    Conclusion: balanced, complex good drop with slight weakness on the nose, 85/100

  8. Kovalyoff scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    Horror. The best example of when there is a nose, but there is no taste, or rather, it is simply terrible.
    Nose: Sivuha ... Real moonshine ...
    Let stand.
    Smoked, prunes, mash (wine) ...
    Taste: trash, right away ... I tried the moonshine better, but it's Single Molt ...
    Finish: sweet sherry, but without a foundation ...
