- The color is a force. For a 10 year old this Edradour is the absolute blast. Intense and powerful sherry dominate the nose, the sherry fades in contrast to the nose slightly in the taste. Nevertheless, it is a great whisky with many sherry flavors. A really great whisky, I like it very much.
Fine intense sherry. The high alcohol content easily bites the nose. Dark fruits mingle with a hint of chocolate. Heavy, intense sherry gods dominate. Some marzipan and dates are added. Again this fruity intense sherry with fine sweetness.
Strong woody aromas mingle with some sherry. Slightly bitter wood becomes more intense and ends in a peppery fireworks with a touch of fruit. After the decay of the pepper and the slight pungency now noticeable fruit flavors noticeable. An indefinable spice for me lies in the background.
Fiery and warming, the finish is set. Slightly bitter wood flavors. Again this indefinable seasoning with some fruit and marzipan. Medium finish with an aroma of espresso ends the finish.
- For a 10-year-old there is an awful lot of influence! Almost reminiscent of the 15-year-old GlenDronach revival - only a little complexity in the sherry notes is missing to the top rating.
Much, much darker sherry. Raisins, prunes and prunes and more than just a hint of sulfur, but retires after a few moments in the glass. Over time sweeter with marzipan, dates and red grapes. Always present is a woody note that is very intense for 10 years and a hard-to-define basic character that can best be described with gingerbread spice.
First intensive spices: cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg and sandalwood. Then marzipan, overripe banana, red grapes and many red berry fruits. The seasoning turns into ginger over time.
Tart oak, sweet licorice and a lot of caramel sound medium long. The palate is a creamy bitterness like a good espresso.
is my first Edradour and I must say… I’m a fan! For 10 years, this comes across
as very mature. The cask is dominant of course, but it checks all the right
boxes for the perfect Christmas dram, while not being too heavy, even for
warmer times of the year.
sweetness, raisins, sultanas, dried plums; pretty much a slew of Christmas
spice in a fruit cake… drenched in brandy, with chocolate sauce on top. This
reminds of the 18yo Allardice by Glendronach. Toffee, caramel sugar, and overripe
bananas. There is a savory component to it, that I cannot quite place. A touch
of curry spice perhaps.
and sweet. Winey notes of grapes and plums. Mild licorice, oak tannins, and a
touch of eucalyptus. Mango chutney and cranberry jam.
Licorice and caramel linger in front of a backdrop devoid of bitterness.
- Nose: Nice musty , soft and creamy, caramel, raisins, dried fruits, strawberry jam and cooked plums
Mouth: Dry and fruity with a good spiciness. Notes of nutmeg and ginger. A little boiled banana, a kind of coconut, red grapes and a hint of raisins are confirmed.
Finish: Beautifully long, warm and slightly dry and a little bit tart at the end.
