Edradour 21 yo 1985/2006 Ch?teau Yquem finish (50.4%, Signatory, cask  
#06/0093/1, 320 bottles)  Colour: gold. Nose: much more vinous,  
smelling like a fortified wine (like Macvin or Pineau). Better  
balanced I think. Nice notes of maple syrup, apricot pie, caramel- 
topped pears? Mouth: sweet and round attack but it?s getting harsher  
after a moment. Not too tannic but slightly sour. The Sauternes comes  
through, with ripe apricots and maybe rose-flavoured Turkish delights.  
Rather long finish, nicely balanced, with hints of fresh mushrooms.  
Again, pleasant. 80 points.
