Edradour 10, Single Malt Whisky, 70cl
From what was until quite recently the smallest distillery in Scotland, Edradour 10 year old single malt is the flagship whisky of a distillery with a lot of variation and experimentation. Scotland’s little gem produces as much spirit in a year that many of the large distilleries make in a week.
Nose: Medium, great complexity. Thoroughly fruity, sherry, sweetness, alluring vanilla.
Palate: Cloying, seductive murkiness. Rum, barley, toasted almonds. Some may find themselves lost in the mêlée, not quite enough method to the madness.
Finish: Any confusion is arrested: spiced fruitcake with crème anglaise.
