Ballechin is the heavily peated (~55PPM) distillation that is produced at Edradour Distillery since 2003.
They utilize ex-bourbon and Oloroso Sherry casks for maturation and never utilize chill filtration. Edradour is owned by the independent bottler, Signatory.
The name Ballechin originates from a nearby Perthshire distillery that closed in 1927. Alfred Barnard referenced this distillery as making heavily peated whisky.
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
