Edradour 10

 

Edradour 10- A wee nip indeed!  This diminutive single malt arrived via my daughter Cait , who bought it as a gift while spending a semester at the University of Edinborough.  The small vessel is representative of her student budget, and that made it all the more special.  This whisky presents a mellow, almost gentle nose, with a subtle hint of sweetness. There is nothing truly remarkable about this scotch but a golden dose of honey flavor and for me, a nostalgic taste that I will recommend to my followers.  Also notable, is that this Highland distillery is the smallest in all of Scotland and that alone makes it desirable. Now…. where is it written in stone that size matters ?  I rate it at 7+.

Glenmorangie Original 10

Glenmorangie –Original 10 year old. This charming Highland whisky warms the spirit with a rich floral flavor.  Its oaky complexity and vanilla notes linger on the tongue and encourage the drinker to keep coming back for more.  The nose is quite delicate and the sweet toasted oakiness will easily put a smile on your face.  This singular malt should always have a spot on your shelf and won’t give your wallet an apoplectic fit . This 80 proof scotch rates a solid 8 and is recommended as the perfect “steady eddie “ scotch  .
