Edradour 9 year old 2006 Barolo Cask Matured (Batch 5), 46%

Price: $65 Issue: Fall 2016 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

This expression of Edradour was distilled in April 2006 and was the fifth batch to be matured in Barolo wine hogsheads. Fruity farmyard aromas, spice, then developing heather honey, soft oak, and caramel. Earthy fruit notes on the palate, with walnuts, malt, and pepper. Mildly mouth-drying in the medium-length finish, with aniseed and black pepper. (2,000 bottles) £50
