Balvenie Peat Week 14 year old, Single Malt Whisky, 70cl.
Since 2002, The Balvenie Distillery has produced peated malt for one week of the year. Peated heavily to 30ppm and matured exclusively in american oak barrels for a minimum of 14 years, it has been bottled un-chillfiltered at 48.3% ABV.
It is smoky but still with the traditional Speyside characteristics shining through.
Nose: Gentle sweet peat smoke, lighter floral notes and delicate butterscotch.
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.
