Review #90 - Edradour 10 year Old 2003 Sauternes Cask Matured 46%
Nose: Ripe plum. Toasted bread. Vanilla caramel, dried pear. Palate: Bright and sweet. Apricot, vanilla, and more pear-like flavours abound. They quickly transition to the finish. Finish: Here's where it's interesting. Oaky, tannic, slightly spicy, and long lasting. Rum raisins, something resinous, pear skins, almonds. Final thoughts: Very nicely balanced Sauternes cask finished malt. The sweetness of the sips is backed up by such an interesting finish. Edradour hits it hard again, as usual. Would I buy this: I would, depending on price. This is quite delicious. Would I order this in a bar: Yes, big yes. Would I drink this if someone gave me a glass: Definitely. Verdict: I like it. Thumbs up.
