The nose opens with a strong hint of smoked bacon accompanied by sweet dark fruits such as black cherries and plums.
A hint of peaty smoke rises and mingles with notes of dark chocolate and fresh coffee.
There are also subtle hints of oak and spice that add depth and complexity to the flavour.
A rich and oily mouthfeel unfolds on the palate, enveloping the taste buds.
The smoky note remains present and is accompanied by sweet malt flavours reminiscent of honey and toffee.
There is a nice balance between the sweet elements and a spicy, peppery sharpness.
A delicate fruitiness of sultanas and dates emerges with time.
The finish is long and warming, with the smokiness and sweetness continuing to play off each other.
Notes of oak and dark chocolate linger, adding a pleasing depth and complexity to the whisky.
Finally, a hint of salted caramel lingers on the lips.
The Ballechin 18 Years Cask Strength Batch 1 is a decidedly complex and rich whisky.
