Balvenie 17yo Peated Bottling Note

This cracking peated cask Balvenie was released in 2010. It was aged traditionally to begin with, before a finish in casks that previously held peated whisky. The result is well balanced and not overpowering. A success!

This bottle was part of a private collection - if you'd like more detailed photos just get in touch!

Balvenie 17 Year Old Peated Cask Reviews

A stunner that left a footprint in my memory

Bought this at Singapore airport circa 2013, after a tasting (that btw tells you how good Singapore airport is). It was beautiful. To this day I still remember it - cocoa, chocolate, some smoke....I was new to Whiskey, didn't know that much, still don't, but this was a stunner to me. Also picked up my first bottle of Clynelish 14. all these years later, and sooo many bottles later, I STILL remember that first tasting and the bottle itself. If I only knew / understood what had before me at the time!

It's no BenRiach

As I understand, this is out of a limited edition.
I did not know until after I bought it in a german/danish bordershop this Friday. Wanted something interesting. It was the only bottle left, locked in a glass cabinet playing hard-to-get. I throw 80,25 euros for it. I am now convinced I made a bargain. Thing is - I wanted peat. Not tarry, choking, sweeter-than-kittens-peat but something ne and nice.
So the seal was broken and the juice was poured. Neat.
In the sniffer: Unmistakingley speyside. Fresh, fruity and inviting but hey - where's my peat ? Gave it a break and allowed to breathe for 10 mins. See - there it is. Almost shy, peaking from the bottom of the glass proving that this is a peat FINISHED whisky, not a PEATED one.
The sip is pleasant and the 43 abv won't scar you. It's smooth and pleasant. Oak and freshness fills the mouth as a sence of charcoal starts to rise.
Finish: Enter peat. Not a blast, as some says, but carefully as a guest who arrives too late. And it is welcome. The sqeetnes intensivates to some extend providing a long, sweet finish. Mmmmm.

WHO is this for ?
All lovers of Speysides WHO don't dare dig into the supposed heavier peat appalations.
Kinky Little bastards like myself who want to experiment and who does not take everything too seriously.

Who is it NOT for ?
Those who want phenols layering in the top of the bottle. This is far from Islay.

Those who want what BenRiach does - with Balvinie label. This is NOT Benriach by any Means - and it's not supposed to be.

I give it a 9'ner. Add one for the Price. Dropped one half for not being cask strength. Imagine what THAT could do.......

This or Lagavulin Distiller's Edition

Considering the prices are almost similar, how would one compare this to the Lagavulin Distiller's Edition (which I really love).

@Not your usual Balvenie

Hi there! At the moment, there are no plans, as the range has been discontinued. However, any stray bottles we manage to get our hands on will be put up on the site, so do check back! --The Chaps at Master of Malt

I wander why they have discontinued this gem.
Any chance to get some more?

No a Typical Balvenie

The Balvenie makes the best scotch in my opinion. I especially like the 14 Caribbean Cask. This one, if you like a peaty scotch, will be perfect for you. If you don't care for the peat flavor, stay away from it.

Very balanced peaty taste, delivers a smooth after taste - can definitely recommend. I have tasted a few different Balvenies, but this one stands out as my favourite.

Forgot the rating!

Just to make sure it shows... Easily a 9 of 10!
