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.
