Ballechin Heavily Peated 10 Years Old Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

Volume: 700ml           ABV: 46%           Age: 10 Years Old           Country: Scotland         Chill-Filtered?: Un-chillfiltered

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.

Official 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

“Ballechin” is the heavily peated version of Edradour and comes matured in a wide variety of wood types. The name originates from a fellow Perthshire farm distillery, which sadly closed its doors in 1927. Alfred Barnard, who catalogued all the distilleries in the UK in the 1880’s, made reference to having tasted a peated dram there. This new-age Ballechin is a whisky born out of experimentation. Launched in 2003, and with a whopping phenol content (a minimum 50 ppm), this is predominantly drawn from ex Bourbon casks with a generous top dressing of ex Oloroso Sherry to create added depth and greater complexity. It\'s finished at 46%, without chill filtration, to retain the true cask character.

 

Tasting note: The emphasis is on earthy peat rather than the maritime kind: Honey and toffee thread through the smoke, nuanced with old leather, smoked ham, cigar box, lucerne mulch, grain store and mint chocolate. Vibrant, fresh and juicy on entry building towards a deluge of sooty peat, chilie chocolate, dried herbs and late peppermint in the final stages. At the asking price, this is about everything you could want in a heavily peated dram. Look out Ardbeg 10! 46% Alc./Vol.
