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.
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.
Appearance / Color
Nose / Aroma / Smell
On the nose we found lots of butterscotch and honey notes followed by toasted oak, medjool, and warm brioche.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
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.
The finish is long and blooms with a nice baking spice at the end.
