Now to continue my ongoing need to finish off whiskies that all come from the same distillery, it’s time for the smallest (in size, not in ferocity) distillery in Scotland, Edradour. So remember: As one Edradour closes, another one opens.
So you’re trying Edradour Caledonia 12. Why? Because you like Edradour and the second youngest regular release is that one, right? Right.
Then you find out it’s aged in ex-Oloroso sherry casks. That’s pretty cool. Nice.
Oh, and of course it’s specially selected by Scottish songwriter Dougie MacLean and named after his song Caledonia, which has been adopted as an “unofficial” national anthem.
Wait, what? Are we just going to throw that in there? Just surprise us that their 12-year-old dram is somehow connected to the man who created the main theme to The Last of the Mohicans? Who, it turns out, is a national treasure to Scotland?
