General description

If you like sweet, full flavoured whiskies, then Edradour's 8 Years Old Barolo Cask Matured should definitely be on your list. I think it would make an excellent wine-replacing single malt during (or right after) diner. I usually prefer whiskies with a spicy, smoky or salty bite, but this was a very tasty variation.

Nose

Quite sweet, with a perfumy undertone. Wild flowers and overripe gooseberries.

Palate

Very sweet. Nice mouthfeel. Raisins, violets, raspberries. Tones of nutmeg, pepper and cinnamon, but only in the background. Well balanced, but not with a complex depth. This whisky basically tastes like a sugared mash of flowers and berries.

Finish

Slightly spicy with dry oak, but the perfumy flowers are present here, too.
