A curious Edradour 10yo, bottled by independent bottler Signatory - who own Edradour.

Nonetheless, it looks interesting - there's no info on the cask type, but at this colour for a 10yo, and with 908 bottles, we're guessing this might be from a sherry butt.
A special bottling of Edradour 12yo. Songwriter Dougie Maclean has selected this single Oloroso cask from 1997 as part of the Homecoming celebrations and named it after his most famous song, Caledonia. This is the first in what will be an ongoing series from Edradour.

A 2000 vintage Edradour, which was aged for 8 years in a hogshead before being transferred to an ex-Sauternes cask for just shy of 5 years. Released as part of the distillery's ongoing Straight From the Cask series of bottlings which use a variety of different wine casks to finish their whiskies.
A single cask 2006 vintage Edradour, selected by The Whisky Exchange in early 2013 and bottled by the distillery at 7 years of age. While visiting the distillery we tried a number of their single casks and were shocked at the depth of flavour they'd manage to get into this dram in such a short amount of time - fresh and zesty with a solid oloroso sherry wood backbone.
A 1976 Edradour from independent bottlers Blackadder. This whisky was distilled a year after Pernod Ricard, the distillery's previous owners, had purchased it. Edradour today is a well visited distillery, both for their excellent whiskies and also due to the very picturesque nature of the buildings.
A 1973 vintage Edradour, released by independent bottlers Gordon & Macphail at 14 years of age as part of their Connoisseurs Choice range. The distillery claims to be the smallest in Scotland and is also one of the most picturesque.
