What they say

An indie Edradour, aged in a single cask from April 2005 to February 2016. This was bottled by Signatory as part of their wonderful Un-Chillfiltered Collection, with 323 bottles produced.

Official tasting notes:

  • Nose: Toffee apples, Sherried spices, dark sugar and barley.
  • Palate: Oily and mouth coating, with creamy vanilla and dusty oak. Raisins and fresh plums pop up too.
  • Finish: More oak with a little hint of dried fruit.

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.

Overall

Great nose with a heavy sherry influence but much more balanced on the palate, finishes with a lovely mouth-puckering dried fruits.

Score 85/100
