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Madeira, Moscatel, Port, Sassicia, Tokaji, etc.), with these new releases revolutionising the distillerys somewhat outdated image.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.

The Straight from the Cask version (not diluted and not chill filtered) of the single malt produced by the Edradour distillery. A beautiful copper colour with orange reflections, the nose offers notes of roasted nuts, liquorice and malted barley. The well-balanced palate features citrus flavours (orange, grapefruit) and fresh fruit (peach). It develops into dried fruits (nuts, raisins). The finish brings us back to roasted malted barley.
