Edradour 10 Year Old 2006 Sauternes Cask 325 - SFTC (50cl, 59.8%)

1 of 387 bottles, part of Edradour's Straight From The Cask (SFTC) series, Distilled 2006, Bottled 2017. A beautiful addition to Edradour’s (Scotland’s smallest distillery) fantastic Straight From The Cask range. This whisky has been aged in Sauternes Cask. The sweet wine that the barrel previously held imparts delicious fruity and dessert notes to Edradour’s classically spicy, malty and toffee-rich Highland single malt. It is a truly excellent example of the effects of a high-quality cask on a whisky. 

This single cask bottling was distilled on the 27th September 2006, and bottled on the 17th of July 2017, having been aged 10 years. The whisky is presented at a natural cask strength of 59.8% ABV, and without either chill filtration or artificial colouration. Just 387 bottles of this lovely whisky were produced, each with their own handsome little wooden case.

For a long time Edradour was Scotland's smallest distillery. Owned by William Whitely for much of the 20th century, it contributed malt for their King's Ransom blend, which had developed a strong sales network in the US with dubious Mafia boss, Frank Costello, as its representative. The distillery was eventually sold to Campbell Distillers in 1982, who opened it up to visitors and bottled its first official single malt in 1986. Despite its small size, the distillery has always found itself interested parties, with independent bottlers-turned-distillers, Signatory Vintage, purchasing it in 2002 when it was deemed surplus to requirements by Campbell Distillers parent firm, Pernod-Ricard.
