Edradour Straight From The Cask Port Wood Finish 12 Year
Edradour // Highlands, Scotland
Scotland's smallest distillery is run by a mere three men who produce only 12 casks a week. This bottle is sold only in 500 ml and as such, is not available in the US. The smallest distillery also boasts the industry's smallest pot-still. This particular bottle is aged initially in ex-bourbon casks before finishing its maturation in port pipes. It is bottled at cask strength.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.

"At cask strength it is slow to open but rounds out beautifully after about 10 minutes. Take time to savor the quality and richness of this distillation. A robust aroma of marzipan and baked dark fruits leads to a rich and oily palate with a touch of cocoa and coffee. The fruity finish is lengthy with just a touch of pepper. "
