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.

Tasting Note by The Producer

Nose: Gentle sweet peat smoke, lighter floral notes and delicate butterscotch honey.

Palate: Velvety and round to taste with the peat smoke balancing citrus flavours, oaky vanilla and blossom honey.

Finish: Gentle smoke with a lingering and creamy vanilla sweetness.

Balvenie 14 Year Old - The Week of Peat Reviews

Love it!

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

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.

Brilliant. Flawless. Superb.

I keep a bottle of 12 year old on standby for those long days that life throws at you but this is something else. To describe the nose/taste I would say it is like those summer days where you can smell the smoke of a thousand BBQs and whilst you sit in a heavily floral smelling garden. It is simply fantastic. You have the sour of the smoke balanced perfectly against the Balvenie sweetness at the end. If you have a "bad day" go to whisky like I do then this will become your "good day" whisky very very quickly. Outstanding. Buy one before they are all gone.

For someone who sticks mostly with Speyside and Highland malts I am opening up to some that have a bit of smoke.

This has reached the limit of my tastes, but what is so great about this is the strong Balvenie tastes come through. The nose really can pick up citrus and fruit behind the initial smoke that is detected. Then, I don't smell the smoke after - I really pick up on the softer tones

The taste is incredible. A nice smoke presence but does not over power the balanced tastes vanilla and citrus.

Nice long finish. Great stuff!

Utterly divine

Finally got my hands on a bottle courtesy of the husband and Valentine's day and it didnt disappoint. I'm a whisky newbie and preferring the smoker drams at the moment. This is easily my favourite do far. Medium smoke so you get that gorgeous earthy taste without the kick in the head that you get from some of the Islay hard hitters. This is smokey, rich and smooth loveliness.

Yes please! Keep doing what you're doing!

Fantastic twist on my favourite speysider.

I always have a bottle of the 12 year old double cask in the cabinet. I tried this at Gatwick and it was a class act (even at 7.30am).

The peat seems fantastically well balanced for me, with all of the underlying flavours seemingly turned up a notch with the additional 2 years maturation.

I can't say I really understand the negative review on this one. The peat is dialled down in comparison to the big Islay offerings (which I enjoy). If you were expecting something more traditionally Speyside, I get that it may come as a shock.

However, I think the peat is far from overwhelming and provides an excellent balance. If peat is your thing, certainly worth a go.
