    Rich, warm, a good friend for a cold after dinner
    The sherry dominates but in a "classy" way.

    A nice sweet rammer.

    After the 2006 edition (1 vd 3) I had to try these. You want to have this open, now, 1 of these whiskys.

    Very nice sherry-casked whisky. Very powerfull but very tasty.
    • Nose
      87 87
      A lot of chocolate, and strong alcohol as well. Red fruit, leather, furniture wax. Nuts, cappuccino. Sherrycask influences are unmistakable.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Dtrong, full-bodied, pungent, a little sour as well. Pure chocolate, red fruit, coffee, cappuccino.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Still strong and pungent, long finish. Lots of coffee tones, bitter chocolate, nuts.

    • Nose
      Sour fruit, sherry, brown sugar.
    • Taste
      Heavy but not unpleasant. Pretty sour after sweet of the sherry and some wood.
    • Finish
      Medium and dry with pepper.

  6. OKoster scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    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!
