Edradour Port Wood Finish, 1983 Vintage, Cask #04/0544, 52.9%

Price: $195.00 Issue: Winter 2005 Reviewer: John Hansell

One of the first wood finishing efforts under Edradour’s new management. Very creamy in texture, with notes of sticky toffee, vanilla fudge, fruit cake, raisin, and burnt almonds. All this sits on a bed of dry, minty, resinous oak. The flavors dovetail nicely, with a soothing, satisfying finish. The port wood finishing adds complexity without dominating.
