The Edradour distillery is known most of all for the individual style of its single malt, which is exported throughout the world. Interestingly, the distillerys owner Andrew Symington, has begun working on special finishes, each one more innovative than the last (Burgundy, Chardonnay, Châteauneuf-du-pape, Madeira, Moscatel, Port, Sassicia, Tokaji, etc.), with these new releases revolutionising the distillerys somewhat outdated image. Under the directorship of Iain Henderson, the former director of Laphraoig, at the end of 2002 Edradour began producing a second, very peaty, single malt called Ballechin, the name of a former distillery in the region.

This particular expression is fruity and sherry; a delicious combination of blackcurrant, leather, chocolate, spices and honey.
On the nose, the sherry influence is evident, followed by blood orange, black fruits, rancio and chocolate. The palate is fruity and malty, candied citrus, nuts, fruit jam and spices.
