2008 Edradour Ballechin Oloroso Sherry Cask Matured 11 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
$175. 00 Bottle
“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), in this case you get a generous top dressing of ex Oloroso Sherry for added depth and greater complexity. Finished at 46%, without chill filtration, to retain the true cask character. From an outturn of 892 bottles. Non chill filtered.
