Limited to just 6,000 bottles from Scotland’s smallest distillery so grab yours now!  
Whilst this is a heavily peated Edradour, it has taken the Ballechin name from a dead distillery just down the road. Edradour itself is in fact the smallest distillery in Scotland, with the smallest possible legal stills that create a fine and distinct Whisky. 
 
This is the final release in Ballechin's The Discovery Series that has explored spirit ageing in interesting and unexpected casks. Having spent its life maturing in first fill Sauternes hogsheads, this is a very special wine-cask aged Highland Whisky to finish off the series.

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Ballechin Sauternes Cask and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most single malts are matured longer).
