Whisky Reviews for Edradour 2001
17 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.22 points
- This whisky is being overrated here on WB by the owner of the barrel and his son who both rated it 100 points. Therefore, an average rating of 89+ points is exaggerated. My overall rating for this bottle is 85 points.
- The empty bottle smells fantastic!
Delicate barrel notes.
From the glass it smells powerful, strong, but also fruity and tart.
There are now tart, almost bitter wood aromas, a restrained sweetness.
The fruitiness comes in the mouth.
What a cracker!
Very strong, very intense.
A creamy, aromatic liquid forms.
And again the barrel notes predominate.
Everything quite strong.
A nice malt if you like it strong.
I wish it was a little older.
Fresh and sour, red fruits, strawberry, raspberry, honey, strawberrylemonade, nutty with almonds, some marzipan and after a while there is some nutmeg.
Creamy, chocolate, ‘bonbons’, cherries and a little pepper.
Medium length, again chocolate, creamy, red fruits, cherries.
- Not a fan of this whisky, but what i really don't like is the owner who'se rating all his whiskies with 100 and to me that means trying to cheat the userbase / website.
Therefor this whisky scores a one for me on presentation.
- Bus travel sample of the raccoon
Very balanced body with a nice portnote, which is not superimposed. The finish is slightly bitter with roasted aromas.
- It is nice and dark in the glass, with this typical for Roses whisky whisky.
This is also an excellent Stöffchen ...
The nose nice and sweet; sugared tangerines; Cotton candy; behind it a mixture of beautiful, juicy, red and yellow apples; Strawberry compote; something sweet cherry is hiding
Slightly oily and sweet in the mouth; fruity red; again strawberries, this time less sweet, rather fresh with a light acidity; it gets warm, but not hot; spicy make a few roasted Hasselnüsse wide
In the finish, a nice dark chocolate appears first; the sweet fruits can not be hidden, they are red; towards the end orange marmalade and at the very end he passes away as he came ... in beautiful dark chocolate
