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.

Incredible

Bought it for my dad last year and he won't stop going on about how incredible it is. Can safely say I'm sorted for fathers days to come now.

Excellent Dram and Value

Absolutely delightful dram. Just the right amount of smoke balanced with the delicate Balvenie whisky. Much more subtle and interesting than the island peated whiskies. A great whisky at a great price.

Delightful from beginning to finish

After I retired my physician suggested I might want to have a wee dram of an evening (not how he put it exactly). It was a surprising suggestion, but one I was not inclined to argue with. Back in my youthful drinking days I had not developed a taste for scotch, which I attribute to the cheap varieties available to me at the time. As I shopped for that "wee dram of an evening" I eventually came across a scotch with "peat" in its description. That intrigued me. The smell of that first drink brought an immediate memory of the small bottle of coal oil that my Grandmother Hart used to keep in her medicine cabinet. Although that scotch was good it was not Balvenie The Week of Peat. But, it introduced me to the wonderful taste that peat brings to the drink and when I came across Balvenie The Week of Peat I did not hesitate to bring it home. The Balvenie The Week of Peat scotch offers a more refined, more complex taste. It is delightful from beginning to finish.

Love it!

Great to have that hint of vanilla sweetness with the peat.

Aha

An incredibly smooth scotch with a long finish. The taste of vanilla and smokey peat remains on your pallette until your next sip where it revives again.

Very enjoyable

Agree with others a really nice dram. Full of flavour, lovely and smooth with great lingering peat finish.

Something special

I love this. The peat gives an aromatic smokey twang, just enough edge to excite without overpowering. The balance is incredible with a delicious sweetness, especially the vanilla. Utterly delicious.

Just buy it.

If you're wanting a gentle entry to peat, this is exactly what you need.
If you want something that is actually peaty but doesn't smack you over the head with a burning log, this is your man.
You do dont normally do peat but love the honey/floral types and want something a little different...
Well, there arent many circumstances where this whisky won't impress you, if I'm honest.
Oh and for those of you who just like the label, I know what you mean. You will look so cool having this on your shelf.

Love it !!

I love this, smoky whiskies are nice every now and again, this is a cracker. They bottled it at cask strength too, wonderful. I would definitely have this again.
