Insider knowledge: Edradour Ballechin #6 Bourbon Cask Matured (The Discovery Series) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Edradour Ballechin #6 Bourbon Cask Matured (The Discovery Series) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Light, musty smoke, hints of farmyards, vanilla spice, gentle peat, forest floors and pepper.
Palate: Smoky and nutty, some marzipan, hazelnut, custard, olive oil and lapsang souchong.
Finish: Herbal, floral and toasty, some vanilla and oak.
This is the best whiskey I had! And the fact that I was there in Edradours Destillery when I first taste it doesn't make it less good :) Really heavy and smokey. So good!
