Reviews for Edradour 10 Year Old 2008 (cask 165) - Un-Chillfiltered Collection (Signatory)
A fantastic value and quality version of a great malt
This Signatory (a sister company, under the same ownership as Edradour) version is an outrageously worthwhile edition of this distillery's product. At first it looks like an upgraded version of the official 10 year-old aimed at more deeply-involved whisky fans, but it's actually a fully sherried version (the official 10 is a combination of sherried and unsherried casks, the 12 Caledonia is sherry finished, admittedly for a good few years).

It's much like the much more expensive cask-strength editions in the decanter-style bottle. With the Signatory you lose little against those versions other than in volume and attractiveness of the bottle, as this edition is still unchill-filtered and single-cask (not 2-3 casks mixed together like many of Signatory's other products - not complaining about those, however).

This is Edradour and also Scotch at its finest, and an absolute flavour bomb. It competes with heavily sherried malts such as GlenDronach, in my opinion its quality is represented rather better than another natural rival Glenfarclas, but it also has a lot of Mortlach's heavy mouthfeel as another frame of reference. There's simply nothing like it, and I'd recommend this as an entry to the distillery's output. The cask-strength bourbon or virgin oak editions generally aren't as expensive as the cask-strength sherried, so one of those might compliment this bottle in giving an impression of both 'sides' of this distillery. Hope this helps.
