  1. Edradour Straight from the Cask

    Edradour 2006-17. Aged 10.5 years in a single sherry butt. 59.3 abv. Strong nutty and sherried aromas. With water there is a bit of tropical fruit. Similar to the description here I get cocoa, coffee, and pepper in it with the sherry. Add a little water to bring out more sherry, honey, and red fruits. Unfortunately, on the nose and palate there is also a ton of sulphur in this, more than should be there (maybe low quality casks?). After opening it took months for the sulphur to subside to a more reasonable level. If not for the sulphur this would get a 3.75 / 4. Only available from U. K. distributors [2017-18].

    MB: 12-15% rye (Buffalo Trace #2). Aged 8-9 years. (Sazerac - Buffalo Trace). Though decent, this latest bottle was not what I expect from Blanton's, and seemed most similar to a decent bottle of Elmer (which is half the price), further reducing the rating.

    Aged 6-8 years. Mash Bill: 55% Rye, 35% Corn, and 10% Malt. (Beam Suntory). 2018 single barrel sounds like it has a higher than average age (perhaps 6-8 years) and the proof is equivalent to the cask strength.

    With a low-medium peat level (20 ppm), this very young bourbon-barreled Speyside is an excellent mix of a rich and sweet whisky (as promised), with earthy peat, smoked meats, and a vanilla sweetness. https://youtu.be/72vISN75EUA.
