Balvenie 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!

    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

    Not your usual Balvenie

    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.

    Smooth

    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!

    Merry Christmas to me!

    My wife gave this to me as an early Christmas present this year. Well, this was one fantastic gift. Hints of orange, chocolate and toffee on the nose with just a hint of that peated smoke in the background. One sip and that buttery, creamy feel just covers the mouth. The finish in this one is where the peat really shows. Well done to the folk at Balvenie!
