Released as a part of The Balvenie’s “Stories Collection”, A Week of Peat is a reincarnation of the incredibly unique Balvenie Peat Week. Though recipe remains the same, it has been renamed to fit into the new Balvenie Stories collection. Balvenie Peat Week 2002 was the first vintage of a really interesting idea. It started as the brainchild of David Stewart — Balvenie’s malt master — and whisky specialist Ian Miller. For one week each year they would distill peated Single Malt and thus turn the entire distillery on its head. Everything else stays the same, and the spirits are then aged in ex-Bourbon casks for a full fourteen years and bottled at 48.3% ABV.
You can still taste the signature Balvenie Single Malt style — notes of tropical fruits, honey, peaches, and vanilla. But now it also has a warm, earthy smoke flavor and aroma. It’s Balvenie as you’ve never had it before, and still very different from the famous Islay peated spirits on the other side of Scotland. It’s should be on the “must have” list of every Speyside and Balvenie fan.
