Edradour 1968 (SV cask #1990-1994)
Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in Edradour
With an average score of just 45 points, this Edradour 1968 bottled by Signatory Vintage in 1990 is among the lowest rated whiskies on the Malt Maniacs Monitor.
In any case, it is one of the only 1960’s single malt expressions from this distillery.
Edradour 21 yo 1968 (46%, Signatory Vintage 1990, cask #1990-1994, 1300 btl.)
Nose: well yes, a bit weird, but not foul or anything. Malty notes and something metallic. Vegetal oils. Hay and dried flowers. Maybe a little plastic. Mouth: totally wrecked now. Holds the middle between a jawbreaker candy aroma, parma violets, lavender soap, cologne and fabric softener. I’m tempted to find out whether this whisky would make my laundry easy to iron. Finish: way too long, way too bizarre.
In terms of distillation errors (specifically FWP scents) this is a perfectly educational bottling. Otherwise: avoid at all cost. One of the worst whiskies I’ve ever tried. Don’t even think of tasting something else the same day.
