Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : or soutenu.
  • Nose : vif, dynamique. Tout commence par une ode à l’orge maltée et aux agrumes très mûrs (citron, pamplemousse). Puis, place à des notes de vanille, de musc et à de délicieux parfums floraux parmi lesquels : du muguet, du lilas blanc, de la rose et de l’aubépine. Finement boisé (chêne), il évolue sur les épices douces (cannelle) et sur la noix verte. L’ensemble possède un charme fou.
  • Palate : tendue, accomplie. La qualité du boisé éclate au grand jour. On est effectivement en présence d’un fût majeur qui a libéré juste ce qu’il faut d’épices et de vanille pour que s’exprime pleinement le tempérament fruité d’Edradour. Des poires, des pommes et des reines-claudes viennent enrober et adoucir un distillat plein d’ardeur et de personnalité.
  • Overall : longue, intense. Soutenue par une très agréable amertume maltée, elle prolonge à l’infini les parfums floraux et les saveurs fruitées du nez et de la bouche. Il émane de cet Edradour une beauté naturelle sans artifice ainsi qu’une sensation de grande maturité et de fraîcheur. La rétro olfaction est mentholée et le verre vide laiteux et réglissé (verte).
The brand

The brand

The Edradour distillery is known most of all for the individual style of its single malt, which is exported throughout the world. Interestingly, the distillery’s owner Andrew Symington, has begun working on special finishes, each one more innovative than the last (Burgundy, Chardonnay, Châteauneuf-du-pape, Madeira, Moscatel, Port, Sassicia, Tokaji, etc.), with these new releases revolutionising the distillery’s somewhat outdated image. Under the directorship of Iain Henderson, the former director of Laphraoig, at the end of 2002 Edradour began producing a second, very peaty, single malt called Ballechin, the name of a former distillery in the region.

The distillery

Since 2005, with the opening of the Kilchoman micro-distillery on the isle of Islay, Edradour is probably no longer the smallest distillery in Scotland. Tucked away on the edge of a small valley, among the hills over the town of Pitlochry, this distillery resembles a charming little village with its red shutters, landscaped garden and gently splashing stream. Purchased in 2002 by Andrew Symington, the founder of Signatory Vintage, Edradour has become more than just a tourist attraction. This distillery-farm concentrates all the operations involved in the production of whisky in a single room, from the mill to the still, which is the smallest size authorized by the British Customs and Excise department. Very traditional, Eradour receives 100,000 visitors a year, who are literally transported to the 19th century in this remarkable time capsule.

Merchant

Although the independent bottler Signatory Vintage cannot claim to be one of the oldest in Scotland, it has managed to build up an extremely solid reputation amongst the great malt connoisseurs. The creator of the famous range The Prestonfield and many other well-known ranges, it is best known for its un-chillfiltered and cask strength bottlings that offer amateurs the chance to enjoy their whisky in its most natural form. It was also one of the first independent bottlers to acquire a distillery and now offers a growing number of expressions of one of the most artisan single malts available.

The line

Baptised ‘Artist’, this new range makes no bones about proclaiming its identity. Cosmopolitan and contemporary, it draws its inspiration from the style that gave the Italian bottlings of the 60s and 70s their cult following. From the choice of whiskies (distillery, ageing process, age, strength, bottling procedure) to the design of the bottle and choice of label, every detail has been carefully considered. This range offers a fine presentation of both the whiskies and the artist whose works have been selected for the back labels.
