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.

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.

Finish
The finish is medium length and mouth-watering.

Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
