The Balvenie Peat Week 14 Year Scotch Whisky

1 item left

The Balvenie Peat Week Aged 14 Years (2002 Vintage) is the result of trials undertaken in 2001 by The Balvenie Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE and our former distillery manager Ian Millar.

At a time when few Speyside distilleries were using peat in production, The Balvenie decided to distil a batch of heavily peated malt, which was laid down to mature at the distillery in Dufftown, Scotland.

Ever since then we’ve dedicated one week each year, named Peat Week, to using 100% Highland peat to dry our barley. Instead of coastal elements of iodine, salt and medicinal characteristics so commonly associated with Islay peat, Highland peat imparts earthy, woody smoke notes. This means that even though Peat Week is made using heavily peated malt (30ppm) it has an unexpected sweetness deeply rooted in the Speyside regional character.

The Balvenie Peat Week Aged 14 Years (2002 Vintage) is a single vintage bottling, limited and rare by nature. This non-chill filtered expression is bottled at 48.3% ABV and matured solely in American Oak casks, providing a velvety and round taste with woody peat smoke balancing oaky vanilla and honey.

Easy process

They had what I wanted, at the most reasonable price. Easy to purchase on line and the products arrived in just a few days in perfect condition.

Responsive and Great Packaging

This stuff is hard to come by since it's sold out everywhere in the south. Not sure about other parts of the country. I got a good tip that Cali stores still had Crown Peach, I'm guessing it's not as popular on the west coast. Found this store online, checked Google and Yelp Reviews, seemed pretty solid so I decided to order. Good choice! I had a question prior to shipment and someone responded within 24hrs. Chips shipped my Crown Peach out on the day they told me they would. Packaging was great! My bottles arrived safe and sound. I'll be ordering from them again for other hard to find limited editions.

Awesome bourbon! Smooth with no after bite!

Awesomeness

Just what we needed. Great service.

Delicious warm fruit bomb in a glass

One of the best blended whiskeys on the market. Big, robust body with warm mixed berry pie base and long, buttery finish with hints of rich salted caramel. Very high ABV stands up GREAT to ice -- is like desert in a glass over a couple rocks. Makes me think of a hearty dessert with ma and pa after a long day posted up in a tree stand. Thanks Chips for always having readily available!
