Description

The first time we did it, there was a real buzz on-site – engineers, coppersmiths and other team members came and had a look as they had never experienced the production of peated, malted barley before.

Aged for 3 years longer, this longer maturation has given the flavour time to intensify, leaving a smooth, creamy finish swirling alongside the subtle smoke. The Balvenie The Week of Peat 17 year old leaves you with a finish of ashy sweet peat and light lingering floral oil. The Week of Peat" expression is a homage to the annual tradition inaugurated in 2002, which dedicates one week to the crafting of peated malt, enriching the distillery's history with its distinct smoky chapter. The expression is an evolution of our previous The Week of Peat 14 Year Old, having been matured for an additional three years to further enhance the complexity of the flavour profile.The Week of Peat is inspired by the tradition, started in 2002, of distilling peated malt for only one week every year. Ian Millar, Distillery Manager, was eager to use his learnings from a trip to Islay to experiment with The Balvenie flavour profile.

As with the 14 year old, it’s clear that [the 17 year old] is distinctly The Balvenie, but with a gentle, sweet peat smoke that means it’s different to an Islay malt. You can see [that] the additional three years [of ageing] have mellowed out the peat even more,” she explained at a virtual launch event for the whisky held earlier this month. You have to take your time to nose it and taste it; I think it’s a really wonderful example of The Balvenie.

A bottle of Balvenie 17-year-old Week of Peat special edition, first released in 2020 at a great drinking strength of 49. It is one of three distilleries on William Grant's Dufftown site, along with Glenfiddich (the first established) and Kininvie (. Through careful trials, he and the rest of the team were able to produce whisky that wrapped the classic distillery character in a blanket of smoke. Though there have been other The Week of Peat whiskies before, this is the first to be aged 17 years – three years longer than its peated predecessor.
