Edradour 10 yo (1997/2007), Signatory SftC, 58,1 %

Review #235
This is a single cask whisky, more specific cask number 17 which were a sherry butt, and only 1021 bottles were made. It is from the series “Straight from the Cask”. Nice fruity notes is coming through in the smell. Not only dried fruits but also some fresh fruits. Plums, apples and loads of apricots.

Sweet and fruity in the taste, but sometimes in these Edradours I get some soapy notes, and this is one of those. Soap and some perfume. Sometimes it doesn’t ruin anything, but this time it is really off. The finish is a bit better and the cask strength makes it long, warm and the dried fruits finally comes forward.

Remember that tasting notes are personal and subjective, so maybe you won’t find these notes off.  I can just say that for me, it ruins the whisky… I will give this 75/100 (21/17/19/18).
