Description

Following up on the initial 2017 release of Peat Week, Balvenie is rolling out its second batch: still 14 years old, this was distilled in 2003 and matured under the expert eye of malt master David Stewart. It is, of course, made with peated malt, a departure from Balvenie’s usually unpeated house style.

Whisky AdvocateI sat down to talk with David Stewart in late 2017 about Peat Week, and the ways scotch has changed over the past half-century. When Stewart started his career in the 1960s, many distilleries used peat to dry their barley. Smokiness in scotch was expected. Although that has changed—especially in areas like Speyside, where there are few distilleries still using peated malt—Peat Week is, in David’s words, “taking Balvenie back to where we originally started from.”
