Description

Caledonia 12 years Single Malt from Edradour

Caledonia 12 years Single Malt from Edradour is one of the great Whiskys, that comes along with a beautiful story.

“Let me tell you that I love you and I think about you all the time,  you`re calling me and I`m going home … ” The Scottish folk musician, Dougie MacLean, sings in this song from 1977 about his longing for his Scottish home. Inspired by this song, the componist and Andrew Symington, the owner of the distillery Edradour, created together a beautiful Scotch, that fascinated both, lovers of good music and good whisky as well.

Behind this nice story we find with the Caledonia 12 years Single Malt one of the most successful whiskys of one of the smallest distilleries of Scotland, located in Perthshire in the beautiful Scotish Highlands, which got its rich sherry aromas from 42 months or ripening in Oloroso Sherry casks, combined with complex wood and tobacco notes, completed by a wonderful sweetness of dates, nuts and honey. Edradour is welknown for its still handmade small scale production, with an output of only about 130.000 l per year, but on a traditional high quality level.
