The Balvenie 14yr 'The Week of Peat' Single Malt Scotch Whiskey, Dufftown, Scotland (750ml)
Eager to experiment with The Balvenie profile using what he had learnt from a recent trip to Islay, distillery manager Ian Millar ordered a batch of Speyside peat for the kiln.
For one week every year, The Balvenie distills a batch of peated malt, resulting in a whisky rich in honey, vanilla and citrus notes with an extra layer of delicate smokiness. TASTING NOTES ~ NOSE Gentle sweet peat smoke, lighter floral notes and delicate butterscotch honey. TASTE Velvety and round to taste with the peat smoke balancing citrus flavors, oaky vanilla and blossom honey. FINISH Gentle smoke with a lingering and creamy vanilla sweetness.
