Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : Bright gold.
  • Nose : refined, complex. Peat of incredible finesse is accompanied by notes of green liquorice, lime, green walnut and vanilla. Gaining in elegance, it develops with fine spices (pink peppercorns, cumin, coriander). A veritable ode to malted barley, it gradually becomes deliciously chocolatey and saline.
  • Palate : takes hold of the palate with authority and energy. Fleur de sel gently coats the taste buds, while the peat begins its work. The effect is to engrave its name indelibly in our taste memory. Candied citrus fruit, golden delicious apples and William pears offer a spicy counterbalance. Its impressive length delays the finish until much later.
  • Overall : long, almost never-ending. Still with extreme elegance, the peat continues to gain in depth. Mouthwatering notes of agave, very ripe pineapple and vanilla come to the surface. It lingers on the taste buds with herbaceous freshness (dill, rosemary). The retro-nasal olfaction is spicy (star anise, cumin) and fruity (almond, walnut). The empty glass alternates between scents of fermentation, smoke, liquorice and dried peat.
The brand

The brand

When the distillery was bought in 2002, Andrew Symington called on the services of Iain Henderson, the former director of Laphroaig, for the creation of a second, very peaty malt. Given the name of Ballechin, this second single malt is created using malted barley at 50 ppm phenols, a rate comparable to those of the smokiest malts produced on Islay. Available since 2006, it is sold as a yearly vintage in limited runs of 6,000 bottles. Even more revolutionary than its older sibling, Ballechin is aged entirely in casks that have previously held wine from Burgundy and Madeira.

The distillery

Since 2005, with the opening of the Kilchoman micro-distillery on the isle of Islay, Edradour is probably no longer the smallest distillery in Scotland. Tucked away on the edge of a small valley, among the hills over the town of Pitlochry, this distillery resembles a charming little village with its red shutters, landscaped garden and gently splashing stream. Purchased in 2002 by Andrew Symington, the founder of Signatory Vintage, Edradour has become more than just a tourist attraction. This distillery-farm concentrates all the operations involved in the production of whisky in a single room, from the mill to the still, which is the smallest size authorized by the British Customs and Excise department. Very traditional, Eradour receives 100,000 visitors a year, who are literally transported to the 19th century in this remarkable time capsule.
