Ballechin Heavily Peated 10 Year Old

 
 

$120.00

Ballechin is produced at the Edradour distillery. The name Ballechin originates from a fellow Perthshire farm distillery, which sadly closed its doors in 1927. There, Alfred Barnard, who catalogued all the distilleries in the UK in the 1880’s, made reference to having experienced a peated whisky.

Ballechin was first produced in 2003 using heavily peated barley which has a peated level of no less than 50ppm

This bottling is predominantly from ex Bourbon casks with a generous top dressing of ex Oloroso Sherry casks, to create added depth and greater complexity. It has been bottled at 46%, without chillfiltration, to retain the true cask character.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Herbal and grassy with sweetened smoke

Palate: Chocolate oak over spicy, earthy smokiness. Complexity rolls over the tongue.

Finish: Smouldering burnt heather on Highland hills

ABV 46% | 700ml
