Character Goatson

A fine single barrel release of Edradour’s signature Single Malt aged in an ex-Bourbon barrel and finished for up to five years in Oloroso Sherry wood.

Located in Perthshire, Edradour Distillery calls themselves the "smallest distillery in Scotland." The entire production is run by two men who can produce a maximum of only eighteen casks per week. That’s a small fraction of what the larger distilleries crank out. But they still manage to produce no less than 30 different Single Malts. Basically, Edradour is a small-batch distiller where two Whiskey-loving blokes spend their days tinkering and experimenting with their Highland Single Malt Spirit to make a bunch of small-batch wonderfulness.

Dougie MacLean is a Scottish singer-songwriter from Perthshire — quite near where the Edradour Distillery sits. One of his most famous songs is called "Caledonia" and it has been called the unofficial national anthem of Scotland. Edradour Caledonia 12 Year Old is a special single barrel release of Single Malt in partnership with the singern. It was initially matured in an ex-Bourbon Barrel and finished between four and five years in an Oloroso Sherry cask. It’s bottled at a perfect 46% ABV in its natural color without chill-filtration.

Smartass Corner:
Caledonia was the Roman Latin name used by the empire to refer to the land that lay north of the River Forth. This is the region we call the Highlands today.

On the nose we found lots of butterscotch and honey notes followed by toasted oak, medjool, and warm brioche.

The palate is rich, soft, and velvety on the tongue with notes of melted butter, honeyed biscuits, juicy blackberry, more fig, sultana, marzipan, and toffee pudding.

Finish
The finish is long and blooms with a nice baking spice at the end.

Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
