Nose
Fresh, "green". Pronounced garden mint?
Palate
Herbal. Spicy. Lightly syrupy.
Finish
Sawn wood. Dry. Drying.
Comment
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.

Jim Murray

77
Nose
A perfectly-shaped layer of honey. A hint of lavender and peppermint add to the complexity.
Palate
Fat and explosive on the palate, the spiced oiliness is infused with acacia honey richness which gives way to biscuity maltiness.
Finish
Dries fast as the oak takes hold, though a sweetness lingers.
Comment
Past its best with one or two off-key notes, but otherwise still holds out well.
