Edradour 1996 13 Year Old Natural Cask

This Edradour was bottled at the age of 13 years old at cask strength in a beautiful 70cl decanter. No wood finish, but simply Edradour style maturation on a sherry cask.

He has a wonderful old gold to copper color and creates magnificent beads in the glass. This one is off to a good start.

It smells magnificent and spreads a multitude of aromas: raisins, liquorice, orange peel, thyme, marmalade, crème brulée, nuts and some spices. There is a hint of smoke and a whiff of mint. This is a ‘wow’-nose. And it can do with a bit of water too. That only makes this dram more creamy and sweet.

After a fierce, spicy and creamy attack, I got oranges, peach, ginger and again crème brulée on the palate, but also quite a bit of oak. Drying and a little bitter.

The finish too is drying, but packs quite a punch. Wonderful.

I had almost given up hope, but this is without a doubt a great release, by far the best Edradour I’ve tasted. If you must boast an Edradour in your cabinet, let this be the one.

Finally! If at first you don't succeed, try, try again! Added to the wish-list.

Thanks for this set of Adradour reviews Mark, this one brings us in for a nice easy landing after a spot of turbulence along the way :)
