The Week of Peat honors former distillery manager Ian Millar and his team who first ran a full week of peated single malt at The Balvenie back in 2002. This is a 14 year-old single malt bottled without chill-filtration at 48.3% ABV. This is one of three Stories single malts released by The Balvenie in May 2019.
Peated Single Malt100% malted barley from a single distillery. Dried with peat.
"This peated whisky from Balvenie has a wonderfully smoky, peaty, even meaty aroma in the glass. It delivers on these promises on the palate, too: It's savory and smoky, and full-bodied, with hints of pear and almond to balance its assertive character. A little bit of heat lingers on finish with smoke and vanilla. It's an excellent single malt that would be perfect for sipping by a campfire."
