New BALLECHIN 18 ans 2003 Conquête

BALLECHIN 18 ans 2003 Conquête 54%

Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Highlands, 70cl, Ref: 60429

Quantity limited to 1 bottle(s) by client.

On both the nose and the palate, this version begins by highlighting notes of an empyreumatic and very oily peat. Then, with great altruism, these fade away to allow a full expression of the floral, chocolatey, honeyed and fruity registers found on a flavour and aroma palette dedicated to finding perfect balance between smoke and the sherry’s rancio.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : deep burnished gold.
  • Nose : subtle yet concentrated. On the first nose, an empyreumatic peat (turpentine, sleet) takes up the entire olfactory space. Next it becomes floral (tulip, reseda), chocolatey and magnificently malty. Allowed to breathe, medicinal fragrances (ointment, mustard poultice) bring lots of momentum to an aroma palette that gives full expression to its deliciously honeyed, vanilla, roasted (coffee) and finely caramelized character.
  • Palate : full-bodied, smooth. With lots of intensity, the attack presents an incredibly smooth chocolatey, liquorice and oily peat. On the mid-palate, mineral salts rise to the surface of the palate. Characterized by notes of fish and smoked bacon, the end of the palate is also seeped in vanilla, ashy (soot) and rooty (gentian) notes.
  • Overall : long, full. At the start of the finish, the peat and sherry begin a Homeric duel. On one side we find seaweed, oily earthy and intense smoke, and on the other Corinthian raisin, almond, pineapple and candied lemon. Refusing to act as the referee, the retro-nasal olfaction alternates between peaty and vinous sequences. Gradually, smoke rings fill the air, as flavours of vanilla flan nourish the taste buds. The empty glass is at once malty, peaty, rooty (ginseng), animal (leather) and spicy (ginger, clove).
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.
