Distillery – Edradour

Bottler – The Ultimate Whisky Company

Brand – The Ultimate Whisky Company

Selection – N/A

ABV – 59%

Age – 9 Years

Nose – Super jammy and dark with fruit, dates, dark chocolate, apricot, cooked apple, dried strawberries, bran flakes
Taste – Raisin bran cereal, dark honey, red apple, plum, sour cherry
Finish – Chocolate-y, jammy, a touch warm, spice and oak definitely smack a bit but not super overwhelming

Score: 6
Would I buy a bottle? Yes, was retailing around $70

Thoughts: Really a nice pour.  Super dark and Edradour has a bit of a reputation for being over sherried, but I think this actually had a nice balance between all the fruit and malt.  Both are heavy, but both are distinct.  A touch hot though that bring it back down but given the cost, it was a hell of a value.
