This is a single cask, cask strength expression from The Ultimate, after bottling spirit distilled by Edradour. This is their peated malt, under the name Ballechin, and was matured in a refill sherry cask.
Syrupy prune, fig, cherry and blackberry with faint smoke. Minerality, sweet vanilla, cocoa.
Thick, rich. Heat in check. Smoky and rich, syrupy raisin, fig, currant, blackberry jam.
Long, smoky, ashy and rich. Minerality, burning wood, faint fungal quality, syrupy and loaded with blackberry.
Delightful, powerful and pungent. Amazing. While I've not always been a believer in Ballechin, this is a solid sell from them. Really nice.
