More information Edradour Ballechin Reserve 10 Years 5 CL (Highland) Miniatures
Ballechin 10 Years its the heavily peated version of Edradour
Ballechin 10 Years is matured in a wide variety of wood types. A formidable, smoky Single Malt born out of experimentation, passion and the pursuit of quality. Phenol content of a minimum of 50 parts per million.
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.
