Edradour 10 Year Single Malt Scotch
Edradour is one of the few Single Malt Whiskies from a traditional farm distillery still in production today. The methods of production remain virtually unchanged in the last 150 years and are only just capable of commercial quantities. Indeed Edradour Distillery makes as much whisky in a year as most distilleries produce in a week. A rare pleasure for a fortunate few.
The ten year old is aged in a combination of Oloroso Sherry and Bourbon casks. The nose shows hints of dried fruits, big Oloroso influence and almonds. On the palate, spicy Christmas cake, sweet golden syrup with a touch of honeyed almonds. A distinctive, old fashioned, rich mouth feel coming from the small copper farm stills. The finish is oaky, with soft spices, mellow and warming. Bottled at 40% abv.
