Oloroso Sherry Cask #240
- Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
- Distillery Bottling
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.

Tasting Notes by Billy A
Nose: Coco Shreddies, fruit leather, brown sugar and brown toast. Lots of cereal notes, with roasted grains and crushed barley the predominant note. Some darker leathery notes sit behind that, with polished boots and freshly turned earth.
Palate: Fresher than suggested by the nose, with sweetness and spice – spiced fruit cake, black liquorice, demerara syrup, caraway and rum-soaked raisins. The grain from the nose is still here, but less intense, with unsweetened flapjacks and oatcakes sitting under the sweetness from the sherry casks.
Finish: Liquorice, raisins and old wood, with some tingling spice and lingering green leaves.
Comment: A much sweeter whisky than the nose suggests, with some fresh and youthful notes balancing some of the older wood imparted by the oloroso cask. Great fruit, spice and weight, with darker flavours providing support for the lighter, more fragrant notes.

Excellent, I suggest for those sherry heads that like the thick oily character that is Edradour. On my 3rd bottle here in the States
Incredible for such a young dram. Hints of raisins and vanilla.
