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.

The best I have found for sipping straight.

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

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

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.

Very good whisky. This one's a keeper!

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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...

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

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.

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!

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!

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,

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.

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

Always a great experience with every glass. But very hard to find one.
13th August 2012
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.
11th July 2012
The inlaws have visited the distillery twice and each time brought me back a bottle. Can't wait til they go again!
