Ballechin Edradour Burgundy matured
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 7 It is young and showing great promise. Keep watching this with interest.
Ballechin Single Malt 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 A big ploughing workhouse. Not a showjumper prancing about but a direct beast that does a job.
Dougie Macleans Caledonia Selection
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 7 A tired sherry cask? Or a tyred one? A rubbery profile which does not release much, apart from dour sulphury notes. Water does not help.
Edradour 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 8 Much more sherried than the previous 10 Years Old distillery bottling. The back-label still lifts (unattributed) phrases from my tasting notes for that edition. The new version is very elegant, but th...
Edradour 2006 Oloroso Sherry Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.20% 8 This begs for water, so add carefully. A wonderful nose.
Edradour Port Cask Matured
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 If the oak hadn't taken the edge off the palate this would have scored higher. Still a very enjoyable dram!
Edradour The Fairy Flag 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 7 Pleasant, complex malt with all the character derived from the sherry cask.
Edradour Straight From the Cask Chateauneuf du Pape Cask Finish 11 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.90% 7 It's a young sherry monster, which could have come from anywhere.
Edradour Straight from the Cask Port Wood Finish 13 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.30% 7 So, no distillery character but a unique sherried dram.
Signatory Edradour 1976
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.10% 7 Still a hint of the typical creaminess. Although its flavours are on the light side, Edradour is quite rich in body. It stands up well to age, but this is not the best '76 I have tasted.
Signatory Edradour Burgundy Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.00% 6 Not to my taste. Only useful as a weapon in hand-to-hand combat.
Signatory Straight from the Cask Edradour 11 Years Old, Madeira Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.60% 7 Bags of cask character, and fine if you find finishes fun.
