Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky Distillery Bottling
First released in summer 2014, the Ballechin 10 year old heavily peated is the first ongoing release for Edradour's peated malt, after eight releases in The Discovery series.
Ballechin is the heavily peated distillation we have been making at Edradour Distillery since 2003. Distilled using barley which has been infused with peat to a level not 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.
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.
