Edradour 12 Caledonia- The time has arrived for celebration and renewal and I have just
the right beverage to make that happen. I suggest avoiding the tragically deluded hipster
bartender at the local pub and instead purchase this groovy whisky and share a dram with a
friend. Edradour is a tiny traditional distillery that makes old school your new passion . Located
in the north country , AKA Caledonia , this whitewashed group of vintage buildings makes
sunset colored creamy single malt magic. There is a zesty intensity with floral notes and
dried fruit in the middle of the dram and the finish has some mysterious spice with
a lengthy warming glow. Now pour a glass by the fireplace and avoid the empty headed
wing nuts and bar flies this season. You made it through the year with flying colors and next
year is going to be stellar ! Regardless of how and when you celebrate, make this
beauty part of the evening and buy a second bottle for gifting. I rate this small batch wonder a
sparkling 8 on the snob scale and wish all the best to you and your loved ones, cheers, salute,
L’chaim, mabuhay, and skoal.
Edradour 10- A wee nip indeed! This diminutive single malt arrived via my daughter Cait , who bought it as a gift while spending a semester at the University of Edinborough. The small vessel is representative of her student budget, and that made it all the more special. This whisky presents a mellow, almost gentle nose, with a subtle hint of sweetness. There is nothing truly remarkable about this scotch but a golden dose of honey flavor and for me, a nostalgic taste that I will recommend to my followers. Also notable, is that this Highland distillery is the smallest in all of Scotland and that alone makes it desirable. Now…. where is it written in stone that size matters ? I rate it at 7+.
