Bought – Justminiatures, 13th November 2013
You’d think from the lack of reviews for Edradour in the Whisky Bible, and from Ralfy on YouTube, that malt from the smallest distillery in Scotland wasn’t worth whisky spit in the rain but you’d be wrong. This 12yo example from the Pitlochry-based distillery has got good qualities clearly written on the box – “natural colour, unchillfiltered” and at 46%. I’ve yet to sample it myself but the review on Whisky Fun finishes with “One of the good ones. I like it.”
I would love to say that I opted for this example from Edradour after hours of research but I didn’t. It was because I loved the blue tube the bottle comes in and the fact it’s named after the famous Scottish song ‘Caledonia’ by Dougie MacLean. Have a listen and sing alone here.
