Scotland > Highland > Scotch and Other Whiskies > Single Malt > Ballechin
Following on the heels of the previous edition, this is another very tasty fusion of Edradour whisky styles bottled without colouring or chillfiltering. It is the product of one unpeated Sherry cask, and three peated (Ballechin) Bourbon casks. Creamy, malty, honeyed and ashy... delish! Edradour has given the name Ballechin to their heavily peated whisky style, it is the name of long-closed nearby farm distillery.
Andrew's Tasting Note
Nose: thick with honey and Terry's Chocolate orange, honey and ashy smoke; juicy and malty with a lovely minerality; melon, pineapple and steel wool.
Palate: sweet, malty and smoky with vanilla icing sugar, creamed honey and more chocolate orange; still juicy, more orange, pineapply and melon with a touch of grapefruit pith; Russian caramel and maple butter too with gentle ashy peat smoke; very savoury.
Finish: medium-long and very smooth for an 8 year old; sweet, fruity, malty and ashy elegance!
Comment: another beautiful fusion of Edradours two whisky styles; medium on the peat scale but with lots of depth and complexity for a whisky of just 8 years!
