This is a 16 year Edradour that was finished in a Bordeaux cask. It was a single cask selected by Spec’s liquor store and bottled at 56.1%.
Nose: Overarching mineral notes in a mixture of rum soaked raisins, molasses, apple crisp, and just a hint of rubber. Nice blend of tart and sweet fruit notes throughout.
Palate: Even fruitier here with cranberry muffins, plums, cherries, and almond extract.
Finish: Cranberries and apples with bitter cocoa – dries out fairly quickly.
Rating: 87/100 – I really enjoy these interesting Edradour finishes as their malt takes well to them.
Value for the money: Looks like this retails around $160 which I think is fairly reasonable.
