This is an excellent example how a good sherry cask can make a very young whisky shine. It has lots of power and lots of flavour. – Rating: 87/100

Edradour is infamous for wine cask experiments with very mixed outcome, but this peated expression hits the spot. – Rating: 83/100

The tasting notes may read worse than the whisky actually is, but this is just too immature and drowned by the wine. – Rating: 77/100

A very nice richly sherried expression with many interesting flavours albeit falling behind a bit in the finish. – Rating: 86/100

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

You can feel it is still rather young, but it is a very fine dram with a good variety of smoky flavours. – Rating: 84/100

Rather sweet overall and feeling a bit watery even at 46%, this dram doesn’t really convince me. – Rating: 75/100

A rather basic sherry dram, not bad but not overly impressive either. – Score: 78/100
