Edradour 10yo SFTC Sauternes Matured 2008-2018

Sauternes matured whiskies are my new addiction. It just works very well with scotch. So when I saw this bottling of Edradour Straight From the Cask, there was no doubt that I would get one.

It’s bottled at a whopping 61.4% ABV, but it goes down very smoothly:

Tasting notes


Nose

Broth, yellow raisins, watery spices, Galia melon, pine, fresh cuttings

Palate

Pudding, yellow raisins, spicy wood, vanilla

Finish

Dry, warming and fatty, fungi, broth, savoury and sweet, cantaloupe, pencil shavings, grapes, tobacco

A wonderful palate of exotic and intriguing flavours, which are both sweet and savoury. This definitely confirms my recent love of whiskies with a sauternes-twist!
