Ballechin Scotch Single Malt Marsala Cask Matured 750ml

Ballechin Scotch Single Malt Marsala Cask Matured

Color: pale gold. Nose: it’s well a Ballechin, with the trademark farminess that spans from whiffs of horse dung (nothing wrong!) to wet hay through wet dog and ‘clean’ manure. The peat isn’t assaulting at all, it already melted into the whole. The wine is quite present but it’s not oddly fruity or anything like that, it’s almost like if it had given additional smokiness. Herbal tea and various dried flowers. Maybe more compact and more straightforward than Ballechin #1, a little less extravagant. Mouth: a little sweeter and rounder now, but the farminess is all there. Peaty but not really smoky, almondy, quite vegetal (rocket salad, olive oil), also on green tea and liquorice sticks, oatcakes, porridge... Quite some pepper as well, paprika, bitter caramel... The wine lets the spirit speak a little more than in the #1, which makes the whole probably more austere but also more ‘natural’.

The first Ballechin was matured in Burgundy casks, which worked quite well I think. This time it’s Madeira and we think Madeira works much better than plain red wine. Let’s see...
