Peated Cask Aged 17 Years
In 2010 The Balvenie Malt Master, David Stewart, decided it was time to rejuvenate the maturation of a batch of heavily peated Balvenie and transferred this whisky to newly prepared traditional casks. The original casks had taken on much of the whisky’s character and so David experimented 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.
Gentle floral aroma with hints of violet and lavender. Delicate smoke beautifully balanced with honeyed vanilla and spicy oakiness.
Prominent smoke softens to reveal oaky honey and vanilla. Cinnamon and nutmeg develop with time.
Sweet and spicy with a hint of smoke
Size: 70cl. 43% ABV.
