Edradour 10 Bottling Note

Edradour is one of Scotland's smallest distilleries and at the heart of the range, this 10 year old Eastern Highlander is a rather unique single malt, a decidedly rum-like dram with a thick mouthfeel. The distillery’s methods of production remain virtually unchanged in the last 150 years, and we can see why. If it ain’t broke and all that. This single malt’s decade of ageing was spent in a combination of Oloroso sherry and bourbon casks. This is one sherry monster and we love it.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

Edradour 10 Year Old Reviews

Don’t tell anyone.

It’s the equivalent of drinking a McEwan’s treacle toffee. Hold it on your tongue and the depth of flavours reveal themselves in a scintillating symphony.
This dark seductress is thankfully very underpaid.

20th November 2020


This is a Fantastic Malt never lasts for long , had the Pleasure of visiting the distillery twice in the 80s as a coach driver & was well looked after .

17th November 2020

Don't Tell Anyone

Doing tell anyone how good this stuff is otherwise it will increase in price or it will become as rare as rocking horse shit

A drink to savour

Wonderful: I recently drank the last of my Edradour 10 Distellery Edition whisky: smooth, delicious and heartwarming. A drink to saour. Certainly helped me get through the last and current lockdown with mental and physical health intact.

14th November 2020


Delicious bottle did not last long hence looking for you on line, fortunate enough to have visited distillery, keep safe.

17th October 2020

Great value as well

Smooth and long on the palate. Neat, on the pasture lands of central Texas at sunset cannot be beat.

11th October 2020

Wonderfully different

This is completely unique to anything I've tasted before. Needs a chance to breath but lovely deep and rich flavours. Fruit cake and caramel notes, dark and delicious. This tastes more like a 15 year old.

21st September 2020

Loved it

Stunning, smooth as a silk codpiece

20th September 2020


This is the first Edradour I've tried - I love a fine malt whisky. Absolutely excellent. It was recommeneded by a whisky shop in Kelso, Scotland. He really knew his Whiskeys. Will try others. Well done.

26th August 2020

The spicy taste of Edradour..

I have only had one small bottle of Edradour, in 2004. The taste was spicy, strong, wonderful. I can tell you nothing about the nose, because my sense of smell isn't fully working.
But my sense of taste told me the whiskey was a find, and I love it. I plan on getting a bottle, soon.

6th August 2020


This whiskey simply defies it's age. It is smoother and more mellow than many twice it's age. One for the permanent collection...

4th August 2020


creamy spicy dried fruits.. a bit of medium sherry(lol) yes, just a bit.... Fabulous stuff this for the money.. i hesitate to review this as it will become harder to find..


6th June 2020

Top whisky

Only whisky I drink now. Nothing else comes close imo.

22nd May 2020

Strange and unpleasant

Good on the nose but the taste leaves a lot to wish for. Some dark choclate but also a strange and unpleasent taste of sour red wine. Not very well done, and unbalanced.

4th May 2020

One of the best, this side of heaven.

While sitting in the garden, in the sun, and sipping this beautiful, golden colored Scotch, it was like heaven, I hope to do this again, ciao. My next bottle of Scotch I buy will be EDRADOUR aged 10 years, ciao

19th April 2020

Almost impossible to buy in South Africa. If you see it, buy it!

When Scottish poet Stuart Patterson visited Grahamstown South Africa I shared a bottle amongst friends. Liquid poetry. Had to close up the bottle with just a little left to save for my son. Stuart promised to write a poem called ‘A tot for ma boy’. Unforgettable even; unforgettable whisky.

24th March 2020

Its so damn smooth, has an old whiskey taste...mmmm..nice bread notes, sweetness, spice but certainly has a nutmeg spice punch...I find its overpowering at times and other times just perfect. I'm halfway through the bottle and actually enjoy the

MMMMM but mabey not for nutmeg lovers

21st January 2020

Well done.

Dried fruit on the nose. A little bit of water really helps it open up. Delivery is a little dry then sweetness kicks in at mid palate. Finish is medium length and clean. Nice complexity for a fairly young malt. Well done.

26th December 2019

Great Whisky, Interesting Chemistry

Delicious whisky. For those who find it soapy, does cilantro taste soapy to you? Could be your genetics for certain aldehyde smell receptors. The change this whisky undergoes after sitting for a bit tells me it's full of volatile aldehydes.

14th December 2019

Buy one and try one!

My go to best! Has been for 20+ years. Keep up the good work lads.

31st August 2019

An interesting whiskey

I actually liked the interesting taste of this whiskey. There were some tastes in this 10 year old I couldn't place .. and couldn't care, I just liked it.
I then went and bought the slightly more expensive 12 year Edradour Caledonia looking for a still nicer whiskey .. a mistake .. I was real disappointed with that, too smokey and too little sherry tones, this 10 year was FAR more pleasing to my palate.

25th December 2018

1st on my list

Sheer luxury. The finish is fabulous. My personal favourite.

25th July 2018

The right kind of whisky for peoplekind.

Just tried this again two years after opening the bottle. Immaculate. No gas, no decanting...straight up looong oxidation and this baby’s singing. If I review this bottle again as is I’ll add two points at least for shelf life and its chrysalis-like ability when opened and shelved. BUY ON SPOT.

2nd July 2018

Makes you think 2x about spending $100+ for an 18yr.

Had a bottle of bottlers' Signatory Edradour. Hooked. The smallest working distillery in Scotland, handcrafted; the gourmet single estate small batch quality is on par with any Single Malt or Cognac at 10x its price.

16th February 2018

Quite unique

This is a whisky I have never seen here in the states but when I went to Scotland I tried it and really enjoyed it and my local shop here in Cali just happened to get it so I had to grab a bottle. In Scotland this was bottled at 40% but this bottle is 43%. It seems darker than I remember it being with way more sherry influence. Very sweet and sherried , some vanilla and maybe coconut which does give it a rum like character. Pretty smooth ,not soapy at all and natural color. I think I overpaid for it at $75 but it's worth it once. If it was cheaper I would buy again. The Sugarbear

14th February 2018

You absolutely must experience this.

If you make your way to the highlands you must visit Pitlochry to tour the Edradour distillery. There is no better way to really know a whisky than to see and smell it being made, and taste it with the maker.

29th January 2018

The best!

Been drinking this for 20 years, have tried so many others even at twice the price doesn't touch the rich smoothness is Edradour!!

10th January 2018

La piccola Edradour.....dal Grande sapore.

Mhmhmhmh ottimo assaporarlo lentamente dopo averlo lasciato riposare nel bicchiere, melodia di sapori....ottimo.

7th January 2018

Highly recommend!!

My go to favorite day in and day out. Has uniqueness and quality that outshines most 12 and 15 yr competitors.

5th January 2018

good craich!

Let it sit for a bit after pouring, and add a drop or two of water. (But no more than that!)

19th November 2017


Very good to start. Let it sit to breathe. When it opens up it is pure delight. This made a whisky drinker out of me.

4th February 2017

easy drinking with a smooth flavour

I visited the distillery last years after the edinburgh festival in august fell in love with the area and the 10 year single malt

31st January 2017


I can't believe this is a ten year old - truly sumptuous sherry into chocolate with a spicy finish. Needs a half hour in the glass and a drop of water.

27th January 2017

Favorite Whiskey

When visiting Scotland, I was introduced to this Scotch in Edinburgh. Very complex flavor for a 10yr, with a great after taste. It's hard to find bold flavors from Scotch without a bitter after taste, this is smooth, earthy, with hints of vanilla, and a great after taste. My father and I enjoyed drinking this on our train ride from Glasgow to Fort William, while enjoying scenic views of the highlands. Would definitely buy again, and have already. It's not soapy at all!! Stop watering down your whiskey, and enjoy the complex flavors of this well priced scotch.

4th December 2016

It's great

Really intresting whisky with toffifee, sherry, dried fruit and a little sweet on the nose. Medium body with sherry, sweet/sour taste of fruit, banana, spice and rum.

27th November 2016


Bought from the village at the bottom of the hill from the distillery, sweetness on the nose, left in the glass for a while with a dash of water opens it up no end, increases the sweetness and the fruits.

24th November 2016

A good value

This whisky is an excellent value; a nice, light taste at a good price. Several reviewers have faulted the taste but can't imagine they were referring to the same product I'm drinking; I see no issue with the flavor or quality of this whisky. I recommend it.

27th September 2016


Fruity, sweet, fresh biscuit, unique. I love it.

7th July 2016


This tastes like Play-Doh. Definitely unusual stuff.

8th May 2016

Surprisingly Smooth

I got this as a gift and what a wonderful surprise! Fruity to the nose with vanilla and spice on the palette. A clean finish...delightful! I'll continue to buy this single malt and Asher with my friends. Stands up nicely to my favorite cigar!

8th May 2016

Very good value

This is a souls value and very drinkable

6th February 2016

It's all a matter of personal taste

I bought this on a whim for my friend as a Christmas gift. Four of us tasted it, 2 scotch drinkers and 2 non scotch drinkers. We all found it to be very drinkable. Later we went to this forum and read the reviews. We did not understand the bad reviews especially the ones describing it as "soapy." To each his own. It's always a matter of personal taste. I will be buying a bottle for myself.

Robert Andrew Harkness, B.A., J.D., D.A.G.

Properly sipped, a delightful whisky for relaxing before a warm hearth.

2nd January 2016


Drinkable but it feels wrong, it just taste weird... Is not bad in the regular sense but it just feels wrong.

1st January 2016

Wonderfully smooth

Found this particular delight at the Bath Tasting Rooms. On the advice of the barman, I tried it. Bought a bottle and have done so several times since. I love it.

30th November 2015

High Quality Craft Scotch

This scotch has character. I liken it to the Macallan 12 Year Sherry Oak: very sweet, very sherry-forward. As to the gents who commented on a 'soap' taste that sounds like bollocks to me. This is a high quality dram and you'll love it if you're a fan of the sherry genre, or as one bloke mentioned below, a nice change of pace if youre a peat fan. 5 stars from David in Nashville, TN, USA.

26th November 2015

Very nice

This is a very nice whisky. Smooth, fruity, very drinkable. As for those reviewers who say this tastes like soap, please post exactly which soap you are using. I believe I'll try it.

26th July 2015

Disgusting and vile

Went over to Spec's in Montgomery and was recommended, but its quite awful. So many better scotch's to choose from...

19th April 2015


Had this In a bar and loved it. Bought a bottle at a liquor store on the way home. I might as well have bought a bar of soap because that's what I got. Instead it was in a $55 bottle.

24th March 2015


I'm a drinker not a writer however WOW.....a wonderful sweet fruity nose. Not so flowery as to deny it's scotch heritage. Robust delightful smooth palate. You're right "seductive, almost coy for a single malt".This is a great malt to serve to a non single malt drinking good friend. Being 70yrs. young myself I like to think age is important" WRONG", 10yrs and wonderful. Robert in Canada.

19th March 2015


Smells delicious - but once you drink the stuff it gives way to an overpowering taste of soap. Is that normal here, or have I got a bad batch?

1st March 2015

Smooth as silk- TX

The best I have found for sipping straight.

21st February 2015


I suppose to each their own on this one. I imagine good friends and a memorable distillery tour can make this seem worthy of top marks and preserving a particular personal experience, but something doesn't add up when standing on its own. It took a very long time to open up with a neat pour. Eventually I got the sherried and vanilla nose, but the syrupy palate is soapy, confusing, and a little too hot for being just 40%. The finish - while reminiscent of spice and custard, unfortunately trailed into a thick, numbing, cough syrupy aftertaste. If you're into Highland whisky, I'd recommend looking at tasting notes for Dalmore, Old Pulteney, or Clynelish in the same price range.

16th February 2015

South Africa - The Great Karroo

I am staying in centre of the Great Karroo. Semi desert with very little water.After a hard days work on my farm in temperatures rising to 45 degrees centigrade, nothing beats this whiskey as a sundowner. Got a bottle from my daughter residing in Ireland.Great stuff!

29th December 2014

Interesting change

Considering that my go-to Scotch is Lagavulin 16 yr, this made for a nice change of pace. I am getting to like it very much. I was quite surprised to find it here in Montana, to be sure, but I am glad of it. Nice, very nice.

17th December 2014

mr james reid

I got one in a prize and I thought it was a beautiful dram but I cant find it in any shops

8th December 2014

Tastes like a bar of soap

This whisky is truly disgusting. I can't understand the good reviews - it tastes of chemicals and like a bar of soap. What a disappointment after reading all the positive reviews. £35 wasted.

29th November 2014

Bloody marvellous

For the money this is a cracking dram- I have a large selection of malts including some 3 digit bottles and this is a bottle I buy again and again

19th November 2014

Happy in Maui

Was not familiar with Edradour but it was in Costco-Maui of all places and took a flyer. Lighter overall on the palate, but makes up for it in lovely nose all the way to finish. Very pleasant dram. Not enough depth for 5 stars, and would be 3, but overall complexity/enjoyment push to 4.

16th November 2014

I Like It!

Very good whisky. This one's a keeper!

23rd October 2014

Edradour whiskey

Can I buy Edradour 15year old plus 2glasses ?

17th October 2014

Great whisky!!

Wonderful, clean and pure single malt highly recommended. Just to say what fantastic customer service i have received from Master of Malt. 10/10 :-)

11th September 2014


Best daily wee dram (strictly for medicinal purposes ;-)found to date for the price point! Good stuff.

18th June 2014

Inexpensive and Delicious

A terrific whiskey. A sweetness that doesn't over power the overall taste. Highly enjoyable.

2nd June 2014

Got a bottle from a friend

who poured me a glass and told me "Their 10 drinks like some other companies'18. I made that bottle last as long as I could- amazing stuff particularly for the price.

1st June 2014


Superb...What more can I say ....It's just superb

21st March 2014

Excellent single malt!

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.

8th November 2013


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.

29th October 2013

When the "stars align" great things can happen...

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...

2nd August 2013

Roger T. - Edradour 10 old

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

20th June 2013

Mike M. Edradour 10 year old USA

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.

27th May 2013

Lovely, full flavour

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!

1st May 2013

George - Edradour 10

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!

18th April 2013

Hand Made

A great malt very different but I love it.

11th March 2013


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,

4th March 2013

Ted Scott.

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.

25th December 2012


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

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.
