My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Pale straw
Nose: Vanilla, pears, kiwi-gooseberry yoghurt, lime, hints of ginger and pepper.
Palate: Gooseberries and pears in honey, vanilla, candied ginger, very mild pepper.
Finish: Medium long, sweet and fruity.
Overall: Another very young Edradour, but this time without cask experimentation. And indeed the spirit does benefit from not fiddling around with it.
Rating: 81/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

Scored blind for the Malt Maniacs Awards 2011 – Re-tasted for notes
Note: On re-tasting I think the 81 may be a notch too low, but the Awards score stands.
