Ballechin 9Year 2012, First Fill Sherry Butt (46%)


Ballechin 9Year 2012, First Fill Sherry Butt

When Andrew Symington bought the distillery in 2002, he called on the services of Iain Henderson, former manager of the Laphroaig distillery, to create a very peaty second malt.

Called Ballechin, this second single malt is made from barley malted at 50 ppm phenol, a level comparable to the smokiest Islay malts (it represents 5% of the Edradour distillery’s production).
