What they say:

Distilled 24.10.2002 at Edradour Distillery and bottled 30.06.2014 after 11 years maturation in Sherry Butt number
1206, producing 932 bottles at outturn diluted to 46% ABV.

What I say:

Edradour has always been one of my favourite distilleries to visit as you get a feel for how distilling transitioned from a farming sideline to make use of surplus grain to a mass-production industry. At Edradour most work is done by hand and their small stills produce small batches so this whisky is really quite a rarity.


Blood red ruby and copper (12/20) medium tears leave long thick legs


Balsamic vinegar, strawberry, dried fruits, cherry, plum, raisin, spiced with cinnamon, clove and nutmeg, nutty walnut and malty cereal barley add body along with tannic leather, rich toffee and heavy, well-spiced gingerbread.


Like the nose fruit and spice dominate, strawberries and black pepper, quite Jammy and sweet/thick, orange marmalade with candied peel, red wine poached pears, brandy soaked fruit pudding and preserves, nutty and chocolatey with cocoa dusted pecan and almonds


Medium length, crystal malt and candied almonds


A deliciously festive expression full of Christmas fruit and spices, a nice balance of malt, chocolate and nut make this one hit all the right notes for us to really love it.

Score: 86/100

Don’t take my word for it:
