"Caledonia" is the Latin name the Romans gave the land known as present-day Scotland. Dougie MacLean is a Scottish singer/songwriter who penned a song, a love letter really, to his former homeland entitled "Caledonia." Originally released as a single-barrel that Dougie himself helped to pick, this is now a standard bottling for Edradour. This 12 year old whisky spends its final four years of aging in an ex-sherry cask.

Tasting Notes

"Fruity aromas such as figs and orange marmalade flood your senses, but there is a soy sauce and nutty profile as well. The palate has a rich malty character and almost a mushroom umami quality. That said, the flavors work surprisingly well and are tied together with a dark caramel and coffee-cake background. Peat smoke is mild throughout and the finish is on the dry side of life."
