Price of Edradour 10

Postby Admiral » Tue Dec 14, 2004 1:18 pm

Edradour 10 is not ordinarly imported into Australia, so it's not available at the usual outlets.

However, one store has done a special import and picked up quite a few bottles from various distilleries that we would never ordinarily see here.

One of them is the Edradour 10. I've tasted the new bottling very recently, and I thought it was quite pleasant. Very caramel-ish, but a nice enough dram. Certainly very different to the 10yo version I tasted at the distillery when I was there four years ago, but of course it has changed hands recently.

Notwithstanding how good, bad, or different this bottling is, they are charging just over $100 for it!!! :shock:

To put this in context for you:

Ardbeg 10 - $70
Laphroaig 10 - $80
Glenmorangie 10 - $65
Talisker 10 - $65
Aberlour 10 - $55

Any idea why this is so expensive? Is it similarly priced in the UK or other countries?

Cheers,
Admiral

Between £ 25 - 35 for the 10YO here. Never tried it though. Little distillery, big price.

It's not available in this part of Canada however the last time we had Edradour here it was with the paper label with the multi colored picture of the distillery on it so that indicates how long ago it was, it was expensive then in comparison to others.

You were right, Frodo, it is $85. That is a lot, especially considering it is a hum drum chillfiltered 40% OB.

Signatory owns the distillery now so we also have several ridiculously priced older bottlings. '73 30yo 43% $900, '73 30yo single cask CS $1000, '93 burgundy finish CS for $150 for 500mL, '93 port finish CS $150 for 500mL, '91 CS $150 for 500mL.

I still like it however. I wouldn't quite pay the C$85 for it, but I think it's good.

We don't have any Edradour out here although from the posts it seems we're not missing much.

Hi Admiral,

in Europe, there are a lot of Edradour bottlings, especially since Signatory took over.

They had a special series for Maison du Whisky in Paris, called 'Straight from the Cask'. It is exactly what is says. Packed in wooden boxes, small 500 ml dumpy bottles, packed as if it were marketed by perfume people, very attractive and authentic looks.

Check their site at:

http://www.whisky.fr/index.php

In case you need explanations in french, mayby the french/belgium/canadian members here can help you out...

Oh, sipping too much Bowmore, you'd better click on that Union Jack if you want it in English :oops:

I tasted one of these Edradour bottlings and must say, they are worth the price as they are here in Europe.

yes, i bought the Edradour Port Finish of those signatory releases. They are all finished except the "original Cask Strength"and they are all on cask strength. Its a good dram, but nothing to get over-excited about IMO. also i dont like 50CL bottlings at all. its just too few whisky.
