Edradour 10 Year Old 2008 (cask 9) - Un-Chillfiltered Collection (Signatory) (70cl, 46%)
Bottle No 730
The unchillfiltered version of the 10 Year Old, traditionally bottled, no colour added and a little stronger at 46% ABV.
Due to no chillfiltration this is both more full bodied and full flavoured. This whisky may turn cloudy when stored in a cool place but does not affect the flavour in any way.
This is a Signatory Vintage bottling (the independent bottler is based at Edradour Distillery) and is labelled with date of distillation, cask number, bottle number and bottling date. This is a Single Oloroso Sherry cask bottling.
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.
Signatory Vintage were established in 1988 by Andrew Symington and are one of Scotland's most prolific independent bottlers. Their offices and bottling facility are located next to Edradour distillery, which they have also owned since 2002.
