BALVENIE 17YR PEATED CASK
Out of Stock
A complicated process of maturation created this extra-peaty whisky from the Balvenie distillery in Speyside. In 2001, a heavily peated batch of barley was distilled and allowed to mature until malt master David Stewart decided to transfer the whisky to newly prepared traditional casks. The casks that had originally held the peated liquid had taken on much of its character and so David decided to experiment by filling them with 17 year old Balvenie for a short period. The result was an intensely peaty whisky. Marrying this liquid with 17 year old Balvenie finished in new American oak casks produced The Balvenie Peated Cask, a complex single malt that is rich and spicy with layers of smokiness. Nose: Gentle floral aroma with hints of violet and lavender. Delicate smoke beautifully balanced with honeyed vanilla and spicy oakiness. Palate: Prominent smoke softens to reveal oaky honey and vanilla. Cinnamon and nutmeg develop with time. Finish: Sweet and spicy with a hint of smoke.
