Ballechin is the peated version of Edradour and is a formidable, smoky Single Malt born out of experimentation, passion and the pursuit of quality.
The Bourbon Cask Matured is our sixth release of Ballechin, and has been matured solely in first fill Bourbon Barrels. The barley used is peated to not less than 50 phenol parts per million.
The name Ballechin comes from a long closed farm distillery near Edradour which, according to Alfred Barnard, produced a peated malt. Ballechin is maturing in a variety of woods, and is bottled under the Discovery series label. Initial releases have now sold out.
Bottled in 2011. Release Number 6 in the Discovery Series. One of 8 Limited Edition bottlings. A total of 6000 bottles were produced. Limited stocks remain..
Unchillfiltered • Natural Colour • Distilled, Matured and Bottled at Edradour • Handmade in Scotland
Nose: Sweet peat, vanilla and dried spiced fruit
Palate: Balanced and complex lemon vanilla and chocolate berries with bonfire smoke at the back of the palate. A smooth texture so typical of this artisanal distillery
Finish: Plain chocolate, almost salty bonfire ash that lingers on
