My first bottle of 'Scotland's little gem' Edradour. This one is highly rated by Ralfy.
Spicy with cinnamon and dried fruits.
More of the same on the palate, fruit cake, spices, a cereal note and a little oak.
Quite long and drying with dark chocolate
I'm not sure what casks have been used? But I'm guessing a mix of sherry and bourbon casks? Because it has a definte sherried character but isn't over-rich. I tried it with and without water and found water didn't really help it at all.
Overall a solid highland whisky with a rich but not cloying sherry cask influence. It perhaps lacks a little in complexity. Probably not one I'll buy again. I never quite warmed to it all the time I had the bottle open.
