Balvenie The Stories 14YO, The Week of Peat
The Balvenie Distillery is built on the stories that are told from each generation of craftsmen to the next. They are the lifeblood. It is how they pass on what they know, how they process experiences, and how new ideas are created. The Balvenie Stories range documents these tales of true character.
The Week of Peat is the story where distillery manager Ian Millar, spotted a week's gap in the distillery schedule. Eager to experiment with The Balvenie profile using what he had learnt from a recent trip to Islay, he ordered a batch of Speyside peat for the kiln and built a peat burner on the side 'for, well, extra peatiness'.
Described as a sweet, smoky and fragrant expression of The Balvenie, crafted by distilling peated malt for one week of the year.
