Edradour 12 yo (bottled 2009), Caledonia Selection, 46 %

Review #234
This expression is from Oloroso sherry casks. It shows in the color which is very beautiful, and the smell where some dried fruits is coming through. Some hints of coffee and dark chocolate as well. You know that bitterness from some dark chocolates with high cocoa concentration? Some of that as well.

Sweet fruity and nutty notes at first in the taste. Then I get some soap notes… A bit strange, but not outright bad. Some sweet sugar notes as well. I am glad they kept this at 46 %, as it makes the finish long and warm.

Not the best sherry whisky, but decent. I kept thinking about cake throughout the tasting of this, so this would probably go great with a bowl of vanilla ice cream! I will give this 83/100 (20/20/22/21).
