Introduced to the market in June 2017, this Balvenie release is set to be a permanent travel retail exclusive. The whisky harkens days past when Speyside whisky distilleries used to use peat in their whiskies. This peated single malt is non-chill-filtered and is aged, as the name suggests, in three types of casks: first-fill bourbon, refill bourbon, and sherry.

Tasting Notes

"This is Balvenie after 14 years of hitting the gym. But it shows its gentle side the longer it sits. Muscular smoky peat is knitted with earthy oak. The gentle sweetness of spiced honey signs The Balvenie autograph. Vanilla and orchard fruits balance on the palate with a floral note. It’s zesty, creamy and peppery with the smoke drifting into a finish that’s loaded with sweet dried fruits, spice and a splash of citrus."
