Whisky Reviews for Edradour 2002

- Different Edradour, very drinkable. Misses some balance but a good dram over all.
- Interesting whisky, the alcohol is strong, but does not destroy the beautiful fruit notes, water is not necessary. If you add some, the whisky changes character and the fruit comes back to make room for sawdust and cereal / oat flakes that were previously subliminal. Chameleonmalt. Nice sherry whisky and always interesting. That's fun
The alcohol tickles the nose, then fruity meaty, cherry, plum, sherry, toffee, caramel, brown cane sugar, but also a bit dry with water:
The fruits step back a bit and give way to a sawdust and cereal touch that was previously only subliminally available
strong onset, but nice dry, then the fruits, again the plum and the cherry, then the sherry, toffee, slightly sour and black tea to the finish out, in between, the herbaceous oak flashes again and again with water:
Here, too, the fruits come back clearly and a slightly bitter sawdust comes out, to cereals and especially oatmeal, but then also the toffee
Long finish, really great, the fruits, especially the sweet cherry are still there, then some black tea, some oak and sawdust.
- Rich taste, quite spicy compared to other sherried whiskies. The addition of water takes some of the spicy edge off by pushing the tobacco and pepper notes off their first-row seats, leaving room for espresso and toffee to shine through. This is a fine cask strength whisky indeed.
(If you're looking for a cask strength sherry bomb that is less spicy and more affordable, give the Aberlour a'bunadh a try.)
Pungent spiciness in the foreground, the sherry not that present at first. Gets rounder after a couple of minutes in the glass. More sherry now as I begin to smell sweet notes, most notably dried dark fruits. I'm inclined to describe the nose as "peppery sweetness".
Intense, there is that pepper again, accompanied by tobacco. Definitely a lot of sherry, too. Plums, ripe fruits.
Long, spicy and slightly bitter (tobacco) with a tad of dark chocolate.
- From the nose far ahead. In terms of taste, my predecessors were more balanced and somewhat more complex. Nothing for newcomers and great "water feature"
This is my fifth sherry decanter and the brightest in color. From the nose but actually the most intensive.
Tropical fruits, mango, passion fruit, a lot of spice, sultanas, dark chocolate, roasted aromas, espresso notes
Already first alcoholic and very strong intense. Chocolate with ripe dates and the aforementioned fruits. Much oak, a bit bitter.
Bitterness, slightly dry, chocolate long finish
- Saulecker and taste very substantial - as usual as in Edradour in general and the decanter in particular, 90 € are no small thing, but you can lie down for such a barrel strength sherry board good conscience.
intense, but very soft and velvety in spite of the strength, nothing bites, chocolate, cocoa, dried fruit, a light rum touch and the Edradour-typical earthy-leathery note
Despite its strength, it is amazingly unsatisfactory, but still contains some water without being watery - very intense, full-bodied, sweet to bittersweet, cocoa, molasses, sugar beet syrup, a hint of plum jam, leather and tobacco
long and strong, first chocolaty, then herbal bitters, camillan and well pepper
