Released as part of The Balvenie Stories during 2021 and exclusively made available in the UK through Clink, Week of Peat 17 Year Old is now available through selected specialist retailers. This is the second Week of Peat expression in the series which was previously a 14-year-old single malt. The extra three years in ex-bourbon casks has mellowed out the peat beautifully in this 17-year-old, yet retains its complexity, as the craftsmanship in maturation and use of traditional malting floors shines through.
Gentle aromas of peat smoke alongside floral honeyed notes, move into a velvety palate of vibrant citrus fruits, vanilla and oak. The dram finishes with a creamy, lingering smokiness.
