Review #893 – Edradour 8yr 2007 Grand Arome Rum Cask Finish

Review #893 | /r/Scotch Review #300 – Edradour 8yr 2007 Grand Arome Rum Cask Finish

The Schtick: This is a release from Edradour, who is owned by Sigantory Vintage. It is matured in Grand Arome rum casks (can’t say I’ve run into these before).

Distiller: Edradour

Bottler: Edradour (Signatory Vintage)

ABV: 46% ABV

Age: 8 Years

Nose: Bredy, sweet. Loads of apples, and pears. Honey, lots of rich toffee. Some souring here, faintly lactic. Almost like cheese, if that isn’t too out there. Orange peel, lemon bread.

Taste: Think to medium mouth feel. No real heat. Vanilla, apples and pears. Mildly lactic and sour. Faintly chalky, lots of cream here with some brown sugar and pepper.

Finish: Short to medium in length, with faint pepper and sweet bread-y fruits. Lots of cream, honey and apples.

Overall: Super bread-y and really, really unique. Not super remarkable, though, at least to my palate. The chalky, lactic, sour notes really degrade from what I was hoping to see from those casks.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 5
