Since 2002, Balvenie has made a batch of whisky using heavily peated malt for one week each year. The result is this whisky which they call 'Peat Week'. This batch 37/52 was distilled in 2002 , bottled at 48.3%, without chill filtration and matured entirely in American oak.  48.3% ABV. Look for caramel, orange peel, blossom honey and chocolate notes. This is a limited production, sophisticated dram.

Wine EnthusiastThis 14-year-old single-malt Scotch was made using smoke from Speyside peat for one week of the year, the producer says. The aroma harmoniously balances peat and baked apple. It's a complex sipper, opening with savory seaweed, a flash of salt and a flicker of alcohol heat. The peat impact is relatively restrained and doesn't kick in until the finish. A splash of water unlocks espresso and vanilla sweetness, plus clove and black pepper.
