Nose: Rich and sweet, chocolate, spices, prunes, black cherries, crème brûlée, a touch of wood, roast nuts and a slight hint of burnt toffee.

Palate: Woody and sweet, dark, drying, sherry soaked oak, dark chocolate and dark fruits, black pepper, mix of prunes and dates, walnuts.

Finish: Fruity sherry nuttiness, oak notes, blackberries, prunes again, long and warming, raisins and cherries continue to linger after a while.

With water: The nose loses some spice and gets sweeter with more milk chocolate. The palate is not as woody or drying. The dark fruits turn into red fruits with hints of citrus (candied orange peels) The finish becomes a little more citric and drying with some spicy redcurrant notes .

This is amazing and just a shame the full bottles are no longer available. I definitely need to get hold of some more Edradour!
