I have only tried this once and enjoyed it so much I want a bottle. I have enjoyed Edradour 10 yr old for some years and thus trying some more.

I tried this both in Scotland last August and again from a sample I recently obtained from Master of Malt. I like it, but not as much as the 10-year old. I found the 12 to have somewhat of a hot finish, which at 46 ABV vs. 43 for the 10 could be one reason. However, I also am currently trying a bottle of Knob Creek Single Barrel Bourbon which at 60 ABV is a monster, but does not have a hot finish.

A rich tasting whisky with a nice finish. Smooth and not smoky. Highly recommend. A much fuller taste than their 10 year old, but that comes at a higher price. Well worth it.

I bought this on a recommendation from a reliable scotch source. By the way he made it sound this was going to be incredible. For me, it wasn't. There was not much complexity going on. It was just straight-forward, hit your face whisky. The flavors were just not there for me. This is not for everyone.

I'm not usually a sherry/port cask drinker, but this is amazing. Thick & honeyed, with a full flavor, maybe tobacco leaf or leather, and none of the 'dregs' of the cask taste. I will be getting more of this.

First of all I want to point out that this isn't a single cask bottling, it says nothing on the labelling to suggest it is, furthermore I asked someone at the distillery and he confirmed it is not a single cask. That, however, does not detract from the fact that this is an absolutely stunning whisky, there hasn't been anything that has impressed me like this has for a good while. The rustic charm of the distillery comes through in the whisky, that’s not to say that it’s rough or lacks quality in any way, it just has craft produced character. It’s my kind of whisky, big, bold flavour with some considerable complexity, it has pretty big sherry kick yet the spirit is more than capable of standing up to it with a unique sweetness.

Just wonderful. A great stuff.I love scottish songs, i.e Robert Burns tunes and poems. And I think, the master himself would be pleased about your stuff.Great. Keep onRegards from FrankfurtWilfried Schuler

bought a dram of this in the pot still in Glasgow, very easy on the pallet. If you like a darker whisky with a lovely taste, this is one I would recommend

I tried a dram sample and found this to be simply delightful. It's a sweet Whisky that is very accurately described in the tasting notes above. But smooth as velvet and absolutely a treat to enjoy. This would be a perfect drink after any meal. If you like Macallan 12 yr., then you'll love this.

I have had a taste for Edradour since I first visited in 1998 before the ownership change. The products are always drinkable and worth sharing with mates although overpriced when compared to the class of an Ardbeg. BUT READ ON! I looked forward to visiting this distillery once again on a return tour to Scotland. but will never ever again visit or buy their whisky. I had booked to do the tour but my elderly mother , who is blind and ninety years old obviously was clearly unable to do this. However, to my total disgust an overbearing peasant-class sort of person, whom I believe may be the owner, refused her entry to the toilets. This to me, is the most incredible crass behaviour that I have ever experienced as a visitor to Scotland. Was it really YOU Andrew Symington who refused an old lady, blind from Macular Eye Degeneration, entry to your toilets. Did you choose not to see her 'white stick' or do you just have those 50 pound notes across your eyeballs man? I notice that about 25% of your revues are "Terrible". I might suggest that you take a trip to Islay and experience the wonderful service that all the distilleries there provide. I just made a whisky buying trip there last weekend and savoured the hospitality and their product. I absolutely suggest that your Edradour be removed from the itinerary of any visitors to Scotland there are many pleasant places to go - and where the whisky tastes better! NOTE TO THE SCOTTISH TOURISM BOARD: Watch out for this kind of poor product on offer to we International visitors. It leaves a long, lingering bad taste.

Nice but prefer the 10 yr old

I tried quite a lot of Single Malts before and my cabinet is filled with loads of bottles, but I have to say this is, by far - my new favourite. I will try the other Edradours too because I think I found "my brand". Compared to my "old favourite", which is the Redbreast 12, this is a very "manly" Malt, in my opinion it is like malts are supposed to be. I like to compare whiskies which each other, so here it goes: The Malt is very intesinsive and which is, I assume the charackter of Edradour. you have it in the 10 yo old too, but not that much, which I assume comes frome the 46% non-chill filterage. It is very thick in the mouth, like the Aberlour 12 non-chill filtered but not as "fresh" fruity. It is more like old juicy fruits, all together with this sickness and this special aroma, where I ask myself if it is a hint of smoke or not

Sampled at the distillery and quickly became a family favourite. Good, wholesome and traditional stuff, with its own quirky character, just like the distillery - well worth a visit. Nose: Gentle sherry and smooth, lightly spiced oak. Honey and cream, touch of nutmeg and dried Christmas fruits, and a hint of peel. Palate: Well-rounded and quite thick with a rich sherry tone and more dried fruits. Honey and treacle flavours develop, and that toasty butteriness identified above really comes through. Subtle hint of nuts. Finish: Good length, warming with more toasted oak and malty butter notes. Quite dry with more nutmeg and spices, and a hint of heather honey sweetness. A drop of water brings out the sweetness and more of the nutty tones, making almonds and pecans identifiable, nicely complimenting the vanilla.

Not especially complex, certainly not as treacly as sherry cask maturation can be, but everyone who tried it was happy.
