Some years ago The Balvenie introduced a peating program to create a different style of the whisky with “enhanced smoky notes”, and pay homage to a time when peat use was commonplace in Speyside. One batch of peated malt has been distilled each year during ‘peat week’, with the spirit laid down to mature at the Dufftown distillery. The distillery has a traditional malting floor which is still utilised today.
This whisky is from the very first batch of malted peated at The Balvenie in over 50 years, in 2002.
The resulting non-chill-filtered expression has been aged in refilled Bourbon casks. The resulting “classic honeyed” whisky is said to offer “unexpected” “delicate, sweet and lingering” peat smoke notes with “cinnamon and ginger spiciness”.
