Balvenie Stories The Week Of Peat 14yo Whisky 70cl 48.3% ABV
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 a week a 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.
On the nose there is gentle sweet peat smoke, lighter floral notes and delicate butterscotch honey. The palate is velvety and round to taste with the peat smoke balancing citrus flavours, oaky vanilla and blossom honey. Leading into a finish of gentle smoke with a lingering and creamy vanilla sweetness.
