A sherry-bomb celebrating the 10th anniversary of The Whisky Exchange Whisky Show. We love Edradour's big sherried drams, and this one was a must-have as soon as we tried it – we bought the whole cask. It was distilled back in 2005 and matured for 12 years in a very active oloroso sherry butt before bottling in March 2018. The cask has layered on the fruit and spice, with intense sherry notes rolling out of the bottle as soon as you pull the cork. A friendly monster.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting note from Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange

    • Nose

      Raisins dusted with golden caster sugar. Touches of new and well-worn polished leather. The inevitable fruitcake sits in the centre, studded with cherries, and drizzled with orgeat and brown-sugar syrup.

    • Palate

      Thick, chewy and sweet. Sweet fruit on top, samp earth and autumn leaves on the bottom balancing everything out. The brown sugar from the nose is back, with singed raisins and baked apples in tow. Then comes caramel, toffee and buckets of juicy raisins.

    • Finish

      Buttery cinnamon toast and raisin jam.

    • Comment

      Thick and sweet sherry-cask fruit with a touch of savoury earthiness to stop it all becoming too much.
