Since 2002, the Balvenie distillers have dedicated one week a year to distilling whisky with 100% peated barley, resulting in the Peat Week bottlings. This is the second release in the series - a 14 year old single malt distilled in 2003, showing off hearty helping of rich smoke.
-Toasted oak with a hint of heather, stroopwafel and coffee, flamed orange peel and dry cedar.
-Butterscotch, roasted apricot, a light touch of floral malt, grows enjoyably spicy as it develops.
-Earthy peat lingers alongside runny honey notes.
