Whisky Reviews for Edradour 2006 vW

  1. didi1893 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A very aromatic and strong malt. Dark berries, caramel, chocolate, tobacco, leather, spices and many other delicious flavors give this malt its original but very fine character. A rather wintry and Christmas whisky. Tastes and pleases me well!

    • Nose
      The malt gleams in the glass like an amber color, oily drops pull their way back into the glass on the glass wall. Intensive toasted aromas and dried caramel rise up, nuts and an oily spice blend. Dark and dried raisins and dates turn into sweet berries and sweet caramel in no time. A subtle fresh peppermint note is in the air, overripe apricots and tangerines come to bear. The apricots are getting sweeter and more intense, sugar and strawberry jam come to my mind. Milk chocolate and caramelized sugar mix with hazelnuts and a fine spicy wood note. Through the creamy and sweet nose flashes again and again an intense alcohol note, the fresh mint note harmonizes perfectly with the sweet and fruity nose. Slowly my salivation is stimulated ...
    • Taste
      Spicy and slightly tart woody tones are mixed with sweet fruit and caramel at the first sip. Suddenly, a fiery and peppery pungency develops on the palate and heats the tongue and lips neatly. My salivation is almost unbraked. Slowly the sharpness fades away and the timid leather aromas and dark caramel are free. The second sip is initially milder and fruity. Caramel and sweet berries show up just before peppers and chili peppers again. It tingles and crackles in the mouth, on the tongue dancing pearls. Leather and almost burned caramel come to light again, chubby warmth fills the entire mouth. Tart aromas and sweet berries play together, a subtle hint of sulfur sticks to the palate. Milk chocolate and nuts mix to a creamy mouthfeel, a subtle spicy note lies in the background. Creamy and tart wood elements rest on the palate.
    • Finish
      With this creamy and oily note, the taste goes into the aftertaste. Fine tart wood tones stick to the palate, slightly rancid hazelnuts and again this unusual spicy note follow. Cedar wood, dry tobacco and a touch of leather exude a little humidor atmosphere. Will the apricots and mandarins come to the end again? I'm not sure ...

    A perfect example of a young sherry monster that still has balance. Very quaffable and lush. This is a real powerhouse of a dram and it can take some water. The water accentuated the sweetness and dried fruits on the nose but also brings out the more spicy and bitter tones on the palate. So be careful (it’s very drinkable at cask strength anyway).
    All in all a lovely sherry monster!

    Fantastic whisky. Strong and bold. Recognizable Edradour and a sherry bomb. Thoroughly enjoyed this.

    Blind tasting!

    Nose: cereals (Kelloggs with honey), dark fruits, lime
    A slight bitterness resonates, becoming stronger over time.

    Taste: Explosive onset. bitter orange marmalade with chili, dark chocolate, hazelnut

    Finish: Medium long. Cocoa, orange, cinnamon. As in the nose and on the tongue nice and bitter

    Hm, seems to me to be young, wild and strong. The bitterness is certainly not for everyone. I find nice :)
    Glen-Diver, 8yo, 58%, ex-Sherry
    Quite delicious. 84 points from me.

    BLIND TASTING

    N: Cherry wine notes, exotic, coconut, tonka bean, vanilla, a pot of sweet spices, I feel like in the South Seas. Madness is this nose nice
    G: Very strong, fermented fruit, very sweet but surprisingly strong. Dark chocolate, walnut and a little peppery.
    A: vanilla, nut, oak flavor. getting bitter. Nice finish

    Conclusion: beautiful sherry whisky, especially the nose I like outstanding, top section again. Difficult to locate, but should be n Speysider again? about 18 years 53%

    He is already really far for the 9 years. Like Glenburgie, it delivers what you expect. Unfortunately, I somehow have an Edradour allergy. Although the soapy note is very restrained, I think I feel it. But I have to admit that I do not know if I imagine that. At other bottlings of Edradour that was at least stronger. That's a pity. Edradour already has interesting bottlings to offer. Unfortunately, the distillery is not for me.
    • Nose
      He too needs water. Then come blackcurrants. Walnut. Strawberry. Cherries preserved in rum. Modriges wood. Balsamic.
    • Taste
      Cola. Very cute. Dried dates. Plum jam with cinnamon. Grape juice. Unfortunately, in the end, I feared the soapy touch of Edradour.
    • Finish
      Nutty. Clove. White coffee.

  8. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Beautiful, strong young, very spicy, sherry whisky. A decent bitterness, oak, which makes him look a little older than he is.

    This Edradour is another very tasty Whisky from "Van Wees" in "The Ultimate" series. This cask strength is a real enjoyer and stays in the mouth for a long time. As with my other reviews, I leave the smell, the taste and the recognisability of ingredients, to the other person's opinion. After all, it is a different experience for each of us. Cheers!
