Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : Ambre à reflets cuivrés.
  • Nose : Riche, intense. Avec force conviction, il va de fruits confits (pêche, mirabelle), en notes cacaotées et animales (cuir, tannerie). Magnifique, ce sherry cask joue la carte de l’équilibre parfait entre le sucré, l’amer, l’acide et le salé. La marmelade, le chocolat noir et le pain grillé apportent élégance et chaleur.
  • Palate : Puissante, ferme. La pomme au four ou la tarte tatin, voilà les deux desserts qu’elle propose. De la gelée de pomme, de la paille et du curry viennent les recouvrir. Elle se prolonge sur les fleurs capiteuses (tilleul, concrète d’iris) et les amandes. Oscille entre jeunesse (orge maltée) et maturité (sherry).
  • Overall : Longue, très fine. La qualité du distillat éclate au grand jour. Dominant les débats, il puise dans le sherry ce dont il a besoin pour gagner en onctuosité et en gourmandise. La gelée de coing, la fleur d’oranger et la confiture de prune sont là pour en témoigner.
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Madeira, Moscatel, Port, Sassicia, Tokaji, etc.), with these new releases revolutionising the distillery’s somewhat outdated image.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.
