Caledonia Edradour is a unique single cask release, chosen by songwriter Dougie Maclean and named after his famous song, Caledonia. This handmade single malt is bottled in a small batch.
“I wrote Caledonia, in 1977 on a beach in Brittany, France, when I was genuinely homesick for Scotland. My life has always been based in Perthshire. For me, the location of Edradour, with its neat cluster of whitewashed buildings, traditional equipment and employment of ancient methods of making single malt whisky, combined with its state of the art bottling facility, typify Caledonia. So it is great to be joining forces with Andrew Symington and Edradour Distillery, to bring you this wonderfully rich and complex 12 year old single malt.” Dougie MacleanAt a strength of 46% ABV and non chill-filtered, Caledonia retains maximum flavour with great depth and body. Initial aging in Bourbon casks followed by an Oloroso Finish of 4-5 years. A traditional whisky for those looking for how whisky used to be made.
“NOSE: Sultanas and figs balanced with honey
PALATE: Liquid Christmas cake, toasted almonds and just a hint of orange spice. Just a little water opens up the depth and complexity as the fruitiness and Oloroso sherried wood comes to the fore. The result of traditional, time tested distillation processes rolls over the tongue like syrup
FINISH: Gently warming, spicy and dry from a time long forgotten”
