Ballechin 10 Year Old Bottling Note

This is the core expression of 10 year old Ballechin single malt Scotch whisky, which is heavily peated whisky from Edradour. It has been named for the silent Ballechin distillery near the Edradour distillery. Releases under the Ballechin name from Edradour were previously presented as part of The Discovery Series, many of which were matured in different types of casks, including Sherry, bourbon and a selection of wine casks. This 10 year old expression, however, comes from a combination of ex-Oloroso Sherry and ex-bourbon casks.

Edradour Ballechin 10 Year Old Reviews

Peated sure, but integrated and balanced? Not really

This is definitely heavily peated.
On a good day, it has an undercurrent of complexity that compares well with Ledaig and Longrow and Kilkerran, but on a bad day, it's too assertive and one dimensional to contrast well.
Overall, it was an interesting alternative, but I would choose the other three every time
I would however test out another Edradour, as this has piqued my interest enough to dig a little further.

The peat lingers but smooth on the palate. Sitting besides the Spey with a wee dram. Perfect

Very warm and rounded

Fantastic, one for a cold day out on the course.

Tough and heartwarming

My favourite. I tasted many single malts but I always come back to this one. I buy him in a store in Amsterdam (-Old South), a hint for all you expats out there :-)

Wonderful and uncommon

This has got to be one of the smoothest, yet pretty peaty whiskies around. It is a beautiful dram which I was so happy I was able to try. I purchased it as a present for my father who loves a peaty whisky - our favorite was a Lagavulin, but Ballechin has taken its place. It is smooth and peaty, and the peat lingers. It has a stormy attribute, and it is a beautiful nightcap.

Quite heavy smoke and tar taste, round and balanced. I save it for the cold winter days with lots of stormy wind from the North-West (Scotland direction :-) ) and eat it with Chocolat Stella coconut nectar

Great find

A great find on my quest of tasting peated whisky outside of Islay. Very smooth but wish the finish was longer. I wouldn't say it was heavily peated. The peat was balanced unlike the Balvenie's 'Peat Week' offering. Nice!

Thanksgiving dram

Happy Thanksgiving everyone ! Figured I'd go ahead and drink a hefty dram of this fine whisky as my digestif for the evening and I must say this is a good way to wash down that turkey. This is a very rare whisky here in California and in fact this is the only bottle I have ever seen of this particular single malt so I had to buy it even though I am pretty sure I overpaid for it. It definitely has that sweet , creamy rum/sherry character of Edradour and the peat seems to work surprisingly well with it kind of a creamy/smoky whisky, almost mocha like.I wouldn't buy it again for $90 but if I saw it a bit cheaper I probably would it's excellent stuff like anything from Edradour. Cheers! The Sugarbear

Very disappointed in this malt. Was hoping for a more sophisticated product from Edradour. This tastes more like Bell's or Grouse blend.

Wonderful whiskey from a wonderful distillery.

Beautiful nose of smoke and peat with some vanilla and almonds. Oily mouth feel with a smooth finish. Warmth without the burn of alcohol. It’s up there with Talisker & Lagavulin 16.
