Everything you love about The Balvenie Single malt with a rare, smoky twist.

The Balvenie Distillery is just up the road from Glenfiddich on the north side of Dufftown — smack dab in the middle of Speyside. And a young William Grant worked at the nearby Mortlach Distillery for more than twenty years. And when he was ready to start out on his own, he bought an empty field and laid the foundation stone for The Balvenie in 1886.

Still owned by William Grand & Sons, The Balvenie has long been a favorite of Speyside Whisky lovers. It’s famous for producing Single Malts in the classic styles of the region — light, fruit-forward, sweet, and clean without a trace of peat smoke.

The Balvenie is famous for its delicious Highland Single Malt Whisky crafted in the classic Speyside style — and that means light and crisp with NO PEAT. But — ever the rebels — for one week each year they produce a peated Single Malt. Fans wait patiently each year for the coming release of this stark hybrid dram — a lovely Speyside with a smoky tang. Well, we have access to a few bottles of the inaugural release of the rare and anticipated Spirit from 2002 — aged in ex-Bourbon casks for fourteen years. And yes, you should thank us profusely.

Scotch Whisky is almost never aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation, while many times ageing process and flavor finishing is concluded in various wine casks, such as sherry or port.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Warm Amber

Nose / Aroma / Smell
You’ll smell the peat, but it doesn’t bite you. Rather, it mingles gently with the orange zest, butterscotch, and apple notes you expect in a Balvenie Single Malt

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The flavors are strong and complex — with lemon, oranges, vanilla, and toffee making their presence known.

The finish is medium length and mouth-watering.

Ratings & Reviews
This is probably a case of a novice buying the wrong bottle. Too strong on the peat. I didn't think that was possible, but here we are. I can't complain about anything else, and it's probably a great scotch for those who like peat-forward scotches.
Very smooth with light hints of smoke, and iodine. Hints of sweetness and the finish is very light.
I was excited to try this. I have never tried a peaty scotch. I love the Carribean cask and double wood but the week of peat was not as good as I expected. It's smooth and has good flavor on the front but on the back side it tastes like burnt electrical wires. So sip after sip was just that. Wish I would have just ordered what I know I like.
I enjoy Balvenie products, this was a little too sweet for me and not enough smoke.
Smooth smoky goodness
Very smooth. The smoke is deep and dark in flavor but light and tingly on the palate. Already want another bottle.
Some smoke and peat aroma, with some spice as well. Certainly has more character than The Balvenie Double Wood 12 year. Taste wise, this is pretty good. You do get the spice, smoke, and peat. Not as earthy as usual peaty Scotches, but it's there. A splash of water doesn't change things much, probably not needed for this one. Overall enjoyable.
Rather than describing all the elements allow me just to testify that they work...really really well.
This is my fist whisky as I just started drinking whisky. I looked at $80-$100 bottles. I looked up the flavor profile on each. I figured I would look for sweet. This one scored higher on the sweet scale. I’m on my 5th glass now (not in the same night!!) I have found if I let the ice melt for a bit, the bite disappears. I’m can’t do neat yet. I certainly taste the vanilla and maybe a little citrus now. I enjoy it more and more every time I have some. Can’t wait for my first Irish sample box to arrive.
A smooth peaty whisky
A nice balance of sweetness and smoke. A great intertwining on the nose and palate. Very tasty.
The smoothness is out is incredible, definitely a drink for special occasions or great company
