Edradour Is One Of Scotland’s Smallest Distilleries And At The Heart Of The Range, This 10 Year Old Eastern Highlander Is A Rather Unique Single Malt, A Decidedly Rum-Like Dram With A Thick Mouthfeel. The Ten Year Old Edradour Is Handmade And One Of The Last Single Malt Whiskies From A Traditional Farm Distillery Still In Production Today. The Methods Of Production Remain Virtually Unchanged In The Last 150 Years And Are Only Just Capable Of Commercial Quantities. Indeed Edradour Distillery Makes As Much Whisky In A Year As Most Distilleries Produce In A Week. A Rare Pleasure For A Fortunate Few.

Palate – A Beautiful Mix Of Rum And Raisin And Toasted Nuts.
Finish – A Seductively Long Spicy Finish.
