Distillery Tasting Notes:
At a strength of 46% abv and unchillfiltered, Edradour Caledonia 12 year old retains maximum flavor with great depth and body. Initial maturation in ex-bourbon casks followed by an Oloroso sherry barrel finish of 4-5 years. An old fashioned whisky for those looking for how whisky used to be made.
Nose: Rich and creamy with honey sweetness. Fresh figs and dates, soft sherry, hints of oak. Manuka honey notes, polished leather and hints of tobacco. Dark chocolate and orange marmalade, toasted nuts.
Palate: Mouth coating, rich and robust, stewed red berries, treacle toffee, splashes of sherry, caramel and toasted almonds. Freshly toasted bread and salted butter.
Finish: Coats the back palate, cocoa, think spiced hot chocolate with fairy floss.
