Edradour 2003 Ruby Port Matured really gave me a touch of strawberries, like many had promised based on their reviews. I was a bit skeptical about it but yes, I really did spot 'em.

This Edradour's been finished in Ruby Port casks and that's why it really does give you a big blast of red fruit flavors. bottled 8 and a half years

For me Edradour 2003 Ruby Port was one those drams that you have to leave alone for quite a bit. At first it felt a bit too sharp and tangy for my taste but after 30 minutes in the nosing glass, everything felt fine.

Nice work by one of the smallest distilleries in Scotland!

Nose: Fermented red fruits jelly, raspberry being the main berry that comes to mind.

Palate: Thick with very small amount of dryness. Spices and red berries take over your senses and yes, a wee bit of dried strawberries in the mix!

Finish: Exotic and fruity, sweet wine and hints of spices. Bit dry.

Balance: For the ones who are looking for thick and fruity whisky experience. Exotic dram.

Greetings from the Pacific Northwest to Finland! I have a bottle of the Edradour '99 unchillfiltered. It's not as good as I had hoped, but it is unique, to be sure. A bit "flat" in my estimation. My friends who visit the house and are given a dram absolutely love it, but they are not experienced connosrs. It has a strong maple flavor to it, almost like pancake syrup. Not much depth;however, it is improving with age. I need to just leave it alone in my cabinet for another few months and then go back to it. Nice review, Rantavahti! I always find your tasting notes to be helpful and interesting.

Thank you very much for your input rigmorole, nice to hear that my reviews are helpful. Now reading this one, I spotted an error ("bottled 8 and a half years" missing the word "after" behind "bottled"). I hope I didn't mislead you with that one...

This Ruby Port matured does resemble the '99 unchillfiltered that you described. My Ruby Port has been in the cabinet quite many months and it has improved with time, though lacking in depth...
