Balvenie 14 Year Old Peated Triple Cask 700ml
The Balvenie Peated Triple Cask Aged 14 Years is the result of trials undertaken in 2001 by The Balvenie Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE and our former distillery manager Ian Millar.
The trials were started at a time when few Scottish distilleries were producing any whisky at all due to a slowdown in the Scotch industry. It was Ian’s drive to innovate and David’s need to create new flavours that lay the foundations for future whiskies with peated malt. Our peated whiskies are a testament to the freedom we enjoy as a family company and show The Balvenie in an unexpected way, but remain true to our distillery style.
The Balvenie Peated Triple Cask Aged 14 Years is non-chill filtered, bottled at 48.3% ABV and launched exclusively to travel retail in June 2017. The whisky is our first release made from 100% peated malt and was aged in three traditional cask types – first-fill bourbon, refill bourbon and sherry, resulting in exceptional smoky sweet notes with cinnamon and ginger spiciness.
Nose: A malty sweetness on the nose complemented by gentle smoke in the background. Vanilla toffee gives way to a cinnamon spiciness.
Taste: Smoke comes to the fore followed up by syrupy sweetness, fresh citrus, creamy vanilla and honey, ending with a cinnamon and ginger spice.
Finish: Delicate smoke with a lingering and spicy sweetness.
