This week I’ll be trying a couple expressions from what is called the smallest distillery in Scotland. I’ll begin with their standard bottling of the Edradour 10 Year Old.
The nose, which I find rather closed, reveals mostly woodsmoke, dades and sweet sherry (oloroso?) and something brings soap in a tin to my mind. Complex, to be sure, but I’m not crazy about it.
The whisky is quite oily, but the soapy character returns, accompanied by ginger, sherry and some feisty spices. But also some sulphure that is a bit off-putting. The fruitiness doesn’t quite come through. I’m still not very crazy about this one.
The finish is medium to long, but reveals nothing new. I’m not crazy about it.
I can be short in my conclusion: an unusual malt, surely, but I’m not… you get the picture.
