THE BALVENIE 14 YEAR OLD PEAT WEEK PEATED SPEYSIDE SINGLE MALT WHISKY 48.3% 700ML
Balvenie The Week of Peat Bottling Note
One of three releases in The Balvenie Stories range, this is a peaty 14 year old single malt Scotch whisky, inspired by distillery manager Ian Millar installing a peat burner at Balvenie. For one week each year, the distillery created peated whisky using Speyside peat, resulting in expressions that introduce fragrant smoke notes to the classic Balvenie flavour profile.
This is not agressively smoky & deep as an Islay malt like lagavulin, Ardbeg, Talisker etc......
Instead, other than the peat this is a typical Balvenie single malt, aged in American oak, with light notes of vanilla, citrus & honey.
This is ideal for peat - curious drinkers looking for a gateway to the smoky whisky world.
