A complex malt, with honey, sherry and vanilla aromas following on to a seductive palate of rum-and-raisin. There are notes of spice, biscuit and toasted nuts on the palate which is long and lingering.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
Edradour distillery is a Highland single malt whisky distillery based in Pitlochry, Perthshire. Edradour is reputed to be the smallest distillery in Scotland.
The name comes from the Scottish Gaelic, Eadar Dhà Dhobhar, which means 'between two rivers". The distillery was founded in 1825, the distillery used to be run by three men but now there are just two.
Only eighteen casks are produced each week; the stills are the smallest in use of any distillery in Scotland. If they were any smaller, they would be deemed by HM Revenue and Customs to be portable, with the implicit capacity for illegal production.
A range of whiskies are available from the distillery. Only the Edradour 10 year is chill-filtered, a process by which the esters and oils are removed, producing a cleaner look to the whisky, which when chilled or has ice added to it does not turn cloudy.Scotland Highland Edradour 0.4
