Edradour 10 Year – 1999 Sauternes Cask


Edradour 10 Year - Sauternes Cask Taste Profile
Stats – 57.6% alcohol, Highland, finished in Sauternes wine hogshead casks, part of Edradour‘s “Straight From the Cask” series
Price – $60
Color – Light amber
Nose – Sweet white wine and earthy, like Riesling
Palate – Incredibly rich and smooth!  Some white grape and a touch of iron-like minerals.  A hearty grain sweetness like cream of wheat or oatmeal.  An iodine medicine taste comes up at the midpoint.  Surprisingly, almost no burn from the alcohol, even at 116 proof!  The finish has a dry and oaky taste.

Alternatives:

  1. Glenmorangie Astar (91%)
  2. Talisker 57° North (83%)
  3. Koval – Lion’s Pride Dark Wheat (80%)
