However, one store has done a special import and picked up quite a few bottles from various distilleries that we would never ordinarily see here.
One of them is the Edradour 10. I've tasted the new bottling very recently, and I thought it was quite pleasant. Very caramel-ish, but a nice enough dram. Certainly very different to the 10yo version I tasted at the distillery when I was there four years ago, but of course it has changed hands recently.
Notwithstanding how good, bad, or different this bottling is, they are charging just over $100 for it!!!
To put this in context for you:
Ardbeg 10 - $70
Laphroaig 10 - $80
Glenmorangie 10 - $65
Talisker 10 - $65
Aberlour 10 - $55
Any idea why this is so expensive? Is it similarly priced in the UK or other countries?
Signatory owns the distillery now so we also have several ridiculously priced older bottlings. '73 30yo 43% $900, '73 30yo single cask CS $1000, '93 burgundy finish CS for $150 for 500mL, '93 port finish CS $150 for 500mL, '91 CS $150 for 500mL.
in Europe, there are a lot of Edradour bottlings, especially since Signatory took over.
They had a special series for Maison du Whisky in Paris, called 'Straight from the Cask'. It is exactly what is says. Packed in wooden boxes, small 500 ml dumpy bottles, packed as if it were marketed by perfume people, very attractive and authentic looks.

In case you need explanations in french, mayby the french/belgium/canadian members here can help you out...
Oh, sipping too much Bowmore, you'd better click on that Union Jack if you want it in English
I tasted one of these Edradour bottlings and must say, they are worth the price as they are here in Europe.
