Edradour Sauternes Cask Matured Single Malt Whisky Highland

 Edradour Sauternes Cask Matured Single Malt Whisky Highland

Right from the first whiff the Sauternes cask influence is apparent. The classic honeyed character found in Highland malts shows brilliantly in this dram. Rich oak spice accented by hints of coconut and apple on the palate lead to a soft, ethereal finish. This is heavenly stuff.

Through the early 20th Century, Edradour was a small, but growing brand. In the 1930s its malt became a key ingredient in "King's Ransom," a renowned blended whisky with global appeal. Then the connections got even more daring… The owner, William Whitely, retired, and a gentleman named Irving Haim became the major shareholder. Haim is known as an agent for Frank Costello, head of the notorious Luciano/Genovese crime family. We imagine that, overnight, raucous meals at social clubs in NYC were accompanied by King's Ransom rather than red wine.

Drive thirty or so miles northeast of Perth and you'll find this oasis of whisky emerge from the Scottish countryside in the form of a set of small, stark-white buildings with red doors and shutters. On this site, whisky has been distilled dating to the early 19th century when it operated as an illicit still (one of hundreds or thousands that dotted the landscape). There is a marker on the property where the excise man's office once was, following the distillery's conversion to legal status in 1825, when it was known as Glenforres. The distillery has seen many ownership changes over the years and is now helmed by Andrew Symington who also runs distillery operations with a small team of 4 people.
