Edradour 2011 Marsala Hogshead Signatory UCF Review

Hi everyone,

Today I've got a whisky from Edradour. Signatory's small distillery doesn't have the best reputation but those that like their weird and whacky whisky, often love it.
I haven't had enough experience with Edradour to comment too much, only having had the 10yo and a single cask Ballechin.
Let's see about this one. It's been fully matured in a Marsala Hogshead for 6 years.

Edradour 2011 Signatory Marsala Matured 46%
Colour: Dark Gold
Body: Medium
Nose: Lots of orange, a little yeast, heather, bread, the Marsala wine comes through.
Taste: Soft and spicy start, orange, some yeast, more spice comes in with some dry oak, ginger then a bit weird with burnt plastic and unburnt plastic.
Finish: Medium length. Plastic-y, orange, weird.
Quite similar to what I imagine the Tamnavulin from last review would taste like at 46%. A strange one.

Thanks for reading!
