The Balvenie The Week of Peat 17
“In a way, The Week of Peat was nothing new. In fact, arguably, it’s the only week of the year we make whisky the way it used to be made – using smoke from a heavily peated furnace, like in the very old days when every farm burned peat from the land (and made whisky in a pot over the fire, it’s worth remembering)."
THE TASTING NOTES
Gentle sweet peat smoke, lighter floral notes and delicate butterscotch honey.
Velvety and round to taste with the peat smoke balancing citrus flavours, oaky vanilla and blossom honey.
Gentle smoke with a lingering and creamy vanilla sweetness.

The Balvenie Cask Finishes showcases the breadth and depth of our honeyed house style through a variety of diverse wood finishes. Our very own Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE pioneered this technique of finishing back in the 1980s, making him a leading figure, and expert, in crafting these whisky expressions.
The Balvenie is a range of single malt whiskies crafted by Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE. Each expression is unique, but all are rich, luxuriously smooth and underpinned by a distinctive honeyed character.
