Product details

Over in Speyside, you’ll find The Balvenie Distillery based in Dufftown. While Balvenie (and Speyside in general) isn’t typically known for peated whisky, back in 2002 former distillery manager Ian Millar trialled drying barley with peat for the first time, seizing an opportunity when he found a week’s gap in the distillery’s production schedule. And so, the aptly-named The Week of Peat expression was born!
Released as part of The Balvenie Stories range, the 14 Year Old is full of the hallmark distillery notes of honey and vanilla, with a fragrant dose of peat smoke giving it something a little different.
