Even with the boom in craft distilleries, Edradour is still amongst the smallest in Scotland. Located in Perthshire in the Southern Highlands, the Edradour is described as a traditional farm distillery on its own website. The Edradour 10 Year Old is just that - a 10 year old unpeated Edradour bottled at 40% ABV. This whisky was featured on Day 10 of KWM Whisky Advent, in 2019.
Evan’s Tasting Note
Nose: Interesting. Quite a bit of sherry cask influence it seems. Dried fruits, a dash of spice, rum raisin pie, hot cross buns, and a touch of anise liqueur (Ouzo or Pernod? You make the call).
Palate: I would love to see this same bottled at 46%, but for now, I am happy to take what I can get. Hot chocolate, cinnamon buns with raisins, caramelized brown sugar, peaches and cream, and the touch of anise again.
Finish: Rich and full, but not over the top on the finish. Warming for sure, and pleasant. Nutty with some black licorice and fruit on the fade.
Comment: I would love to see this same bottled at 46%, but this is a very approachable introduction to the distillery. Fairly rich and mouth-filling considering it is bottled at the bare-minimum 40% ABV. Not too surprising though – Edradour might not be the first name that comes to mind when it comes to big, sherried whisky but they are certainly capable of it.
