What I say
A Sherry Cask matured (producing 323 bottles at 46% likely a Sherry Butt) Edradour bottled under Signatory’s Un-Chillfiltered Collection range. Distilled in 2005 and bottled 2016.
My tasting notes:
- Appearance: Dark ruby/blood orange gold (14/20), medium-fine tears and tapered legs.
- Nose: Sweet and spicy, ginger, dry leather, cinnamon spice, raisins, plum, apple, toffee apple, dried & very sherried fruits, barley sugars.
- Taste: More rounded on the palate than the nose, quite thick, oily and full-bodied, fruity plum, apple, raisin, barley sugars, malty, molasses, toffee apple, dusty oak, cinnamon gobstoppers.
- Finish: Long, spiced raisins, dried fruit and malt extract.
Great nose with a heavy sherry influence but much more balanced on the palate, finishes with a lovely mouth-puckering dried fruits.
