Review #896 | /r/Scotch Review #301 – Edradour 10yr Super Tuscan Single Cask 2006, Spec’s Selection

The Schtick: This is a release from Edradour, a distillery owned by Signatory Vintage. It is aged in Super Tuscan casks, which is a blend of red wines. It is bottled at cask strength and was selected by Spec’s in Texas.

Distiller: Edradour (Signatory Vintage)

Bottler: Edradour (Signatory Vintage)

ABV: 59.1% ABV

Age: 10 Years

Nose: Honey, cherries, leather, tobacco and a nice nutty sweetness. Stewed fruits, also very bread-y. Rich, sweet toffee, currants and apple pie.

Taste: Medium mouth feel, some heat. Sweet cocoa, currants and toffee. Nutty caramel, lots of pepper in here too.

Finish: Medium but a lot of heat here. Sweet tobacco, clove, pepper and some cocoa.

Overall: I liked this and was really posed to throw a 7 out but the finish was pretty hot, and overall I felt like the earthy character kind of dominated. I’m going to give this a 6, which is still very respectable. I’m loving what Edradour is doing, especially all of these fun finishes.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 6
