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!
