New Edradour?! I Love Edradour!
The newest bottle from Scotland's wee tiniest distillery is due to hit the shelves next week. Named after musician Dougie MacLean's Caledonia guitar, MacLean was visiting Edradour in the summer of 2009 to help select the first cask and take part in the bottling. Remember that only 3 men work at the distillery and they are only able to produce about 12 casks a week, which is barely enough to satisfy any kind of commerical demand. Their standard 10 year old bottling is one of the most unique whiskies in existence, and was a runaway hit at our last Scotch tasting in Redwood City. I can't wait to taste this new expression of 12 year old and I'm guessing it's going to make the list at our next tasting coming up March 9th in Burlingame.
