This 10 Year Old is the flagship bottle of Edradour Distillery's heavily peated Ballechin line. It is bottled at 46% ABV, non-chillfiltered and with no colouring added. Ballechin is peated to a level of 50 PPM, and the 10-year-old is a combination of mostly ex-Bourbon casks with some ex-Oloroso Sherry casks put in the mix just for fun.
Evan's Tasting Note
Nose: Smoky salami, well-weathered railroad ties, cracked black pepper, earl grey tea, smoked applewood cheddar, a touch of menthol, blackberry jam, banana peel, roasted cashews, burning marshmallows on a campfire, and dark coffee grounds.
Palate: Earthy again but with some nice sweet notes. Roasted malt, milk chocolate, huckleberry pie with a slightly burnt crust and vanilla ice cream on top, earl grey tea but with milk this time, and Oreo Cookies to dunk.
Finish: Chewy and creamy with some earthy smoke sticking around for a long time afterwards.
Comment: Lovely stuff. Rich and deep with a lot of complexity coming from the peat itself, This is big, dense and earthy. If that doesn't make you shy away, it is time you tried this Single Malt out.
