Edradour Ballechin 7th Release

by Oliver Klimek on June 9, 2013

Bordeaux Cask Matured 46%


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Dark reddish amber
Nose: Smoked ham, red wine, cherries, cassis, liquorice, slightly leafy farmyard whiffs.
Palate: Peated cherries, blackberries, caramel, hints of Lapsang Souchong tea, cloves and hints of pepper.
Finish: Long, fruity and smoky.
Overall: Edradour is infamous for wine cask experiments with very mixed outcome, but this peated expression hits the spot.

Rating: 83/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

Buy Ballechin 7th Release at The Whisky Exchange

Scored blind for the Malt Maniacs Awards 2012, where it won a silver medal, re-tasted for notes


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Reddish amber
Nose: Sour cherry juice, baby vomit, raspberry sherbet powder.
Palate: That sour cherry juice again, slighty bitter tea, caramel, hints of cinnamon and pepper.
Finish: Rather short, fruity and slighlty bitter.
Overall: The tasting notes may read worse than the whisky actually is, but this is just too immature and drowned by the wine.

Rating: 77/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
