What's in a name? Edradour 10 Year Old whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Edradour 10 Year Old whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Medium, great complexity. Thoroughly fruity, sherry, sweetness, alluring vanilla.
Palate: Cloying, seductive murkiness. Rum, barley, toasted almonds. Some may find themselves lost in the mêlée, not quite enough method to the madness.
Finish: Any confusion is arrested: spiced fruitcake with crème anglaise.
Overall: An unusual malt.
I was recently introduced to this little beauty, friends brought a bottle for me ( I live in Australia ) WONDERFUL Highland Water !!!

A fantastic distillery to visit. Very friendly guide. Bought a bottle at the distillery and a few since. Scrumptious, full fruity sherry taste. Perfect after a long walk on the beach in mid winter.

Always a great experience with every glass. But very hard to find one.

Toured the distillery recently, after being given a taste by my son. Outstanding, probably the best whiskey I have tasted. Brought a couple of bottles home, nearly knocked them off, so have ordered some more. Rob Saunders

Having worked in Edradour distillery for 5 years,lived in the little cottage over the burn (Ashbrook,"now a shop")I know the time and care that goes into making a truely delicious wee dram enjoyed world wide.

Tell me if I'm wrong, but it seems that most of the other distilleries these days are cashing in on the gotta-have-more-peat craze, to the point that that is all they taste like - PEAT PEAT and more PEAT,
So it's so refreshing to have a malt like Edradour 10 that is just being itself and how lovely that is,

The entry level for the distillery, which is a truly magical place and a really brilliant example of what traditional methods and a sustainable business approach can achieve. persnally, I find the 12 to be more representative of the house style and slightly more complex. This 10 year old however is still a really enjoyable, traditional highland malt. Nose: Powerful fruitiness (prunes, dates, figs). Sherry present but not dominant, nicely balanced with notes of toasted oak and that enticing trail of vanilla. Palate: Very rich and creamy, hint of nuts and heavily sherried fruit coming through. Sweet cereal and toasted oak flavours also apparent, with a good deal of honey and a subtle touch of vanilla. Finish: Long for a ten year old and enjoyably warming, the spice and fruit flavours linger while a trail of heather honey weaves its way in. Great old fashioned stuff!

I'm really enjoying this complex whisky. Easy to drink and fabulous on the nose but still with so much complexity. Distinctive and recognisable as soon as the glass comes up to the nose - tasting notes above are pretty accurate. Yummy!

Lover of Highland Scotch for more then 20 years. Have enjoyed other 10yr,12yr and 18yr highlands. I was given a bottle as a gift and although there are smoother 10yr.single malts out there, Edradour 10yr has just the right amount of bite to let you know you are drinking a scotch with quality. Don't know if the 10yr are from sherry cask, but the color seems to shows it may be. I am one who enjoys the sherry cask quality. The warmness that flows into your chest after allows you to know that even at only 10 yrs the quality that must come from older cask can only be that much better. Looking forward to trying older vintages.

Really enjoyed our visit to the distillery, the guide was brilliant.
One of the best single malts we have tasted.

Back in the year 2000 I was driving through Scotland w/ some friends. On our way up to Inverness (if I remember right) we passed a sign for this distillery. On a whim, we pulled off the road and were acquainted with a real treat.
I brought back a bottle home to the states and have warm memories of that day...

This a truly stunning single malt. Extremely smooth but still packed full flavour. The tasting notes are spot on. Not your classic single malt but still a very, very pleasurable experience.

Love this whisky. Dark, dried fruits providing a deep, mature sweetness. Hints of tobacco and licorice in the finish... pretty complex for a 10 years old. The guys at Edradour are doing it right! Definitely a keeper.
