Review #644 | /r/Scotch Review #220 – Edradour 10yr 2006 Signatory Vintage Unchillfiltered Collection First Fill Sherry
The Schtick: This is a release from Signatory Vintage’s UCF line. It is a 10yr Edradour that has been fully matured in First Fill sherry casks (type unknown)
Bottler: Signatory Vintage
ABV: 46% ABV
Age: 10 Years
Nose: Sherry, pepper, tobacco, sweet stewed fruits. Honey, figs, dates, grapes and raspberries. Butter cream and vanilla. Interesting meatiness to it, with lots of melon character.
Taste: Medium, sweet honey. Vanilla, toffee, caramel, faint sulfur. Faint cocoa. Delicious overall, sherry and base spirit blend nicely.
Finish: Short, faintly astringent. Some pepper, nice sherry sweetness but also some bitterness.
Overall: Overall, I really enjoyed this up until the finish which was too short, and a bit bitter / plasticy for my tastes. Would love to see if that wrinkle is worked out at cask strength, but this isn’t too bad at all.
Thanks for reading!
