This is one of three releases in the Balvenie Stories Range – a fourteen year old peaty single malt. Inspired by a trip to Islay, Distillery Manager Ian Millar installed a peat burner in the distillery and for one week of the year, using Speyside peat, the distillery create peaty whisky. Giving the classic Balvenie profile fragrant, smoky notes.
Nose – Very sweet on the nose. Initially it is all creme caramel, caramelised fruit sugars, wood sugar, toffee and fudge before some apple and peach come through. In time a charred note of bourbon with a pleasing dusty dryness.
Palate – A sweet start on the palate. The alcohol gives a little tongue-tingling buzz the result is a good mid-palate weight. The dry distillery character is there still, but there is now depth to counter. Water slightly dismantles the different elements, but adds some dried mint.
Finish – A deep and dark finish.
