  2. Whiskywobbler scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    If they wanted to make a different take on a peated whisky, then I think they have succeeded! I found this original, complex and above all, I really enjoyed this. Examplary for other Speyside distilleries who are thinking about going onto the smoky side. One of the pleasant relevelations of my tasting sessions in this year.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Fresh fruits and fragrant scents in the initial scents with lots of apples (flambeed with calvados) and smoked pears. The peat is restricted, but well integrated in the spirit. Not so much a bonfire on the beach on a windy day, more a cosy fireplace indoors. The fruity peat is complemented by vanilla cream pudding, confectioner’s cream, the blackened hard crust of a freshly baked bread. Then it takes a backwards turn towards a car repair shop. We have motor oily, ironwork sparks, graphite, maybe even old tyres and car interiors. In between are lovely scents of butterscotch cookies. Sounds pretty weird, but the interplay between the fruits, pastries, the hearth, and all kinds of things from the garage is utterly pleasing. We also have hints of smoked pineapple, a few distant herbs, butter, and a hint of smoked ham. A quite complex nose, which even becomes slightly mouldy (in a good way).
    • Taste
      87 87
      Just as the nose, the palate opens into the orchard with freshly picked apples and pears and very pleasant peat smoke. A mouth full of distant bonfire smoke, slightly ashy, before we enter the garage. Iron dust, wet wood, car parts, motor oil, brake fluid, hint new rubber tyres, and new car seats. In particular the metallic notes remind me in the distance of Ben Nevis. The balance is beautiful, while the complexity is enhanced with fragrant flowers like roses and violets, and orange peel. It does feel like an sunny autumn saturday sitting in the garage, which looks out over the orchard, enjoying the fruits of an afternoon of picking aples and pears, with a fresh cup of orange-flower-flavoured tea on the side.
    • Finish
      88 88
      The finish is quite long with more bonfires, even some coals, oranges and iron.

  3. MaltMusketeers did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    A very balanced dram, smooth and not overly peated. With only around 3,000 bottles available and at a decent price point, we highly recommended it.

    https://maltmusketeers.com/brand/balvenie/14-year-old-peat-week#tasting
    • Nose
      Fair amount of earthiness initially, nice balance of oak wood and sweetened tobacco notes, floral with overtones of vanilla and lemon zest.
    • Taste
      Earthy again – shinning through, sweet peated smoke with a slight bitter black tea note, subdued spices, cloves, quite drying with a hints of honey and vanilla.
    • Finish
      Medium/long finish with a slight bitter end – 85% cocoa dark chocolate, quite fruity with a peppery sizzle on the tongue.

  4. Drochaid scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Nose:
    Fine sweet peat smoke, floral notes, honey aromas and butterscotch. Palate:
    Fine peat smoke, oaky oak notes, citrus and honey.

    echo:
    Long-lasting, creamy vanilla and fine smoky notes.

  5. Okto-Bull scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    "This has that typical Balvenie-vanilla note, the smoke harmonizes with it, but unfortunately a bit pungent on the nose. In the taste a little too stormy. Lots of oak and lots of alcohol. In the finish rather out of round. Although no youth, but somehow not well done. With water, the stinging is gone and the malt is much better "

  7. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Self-willed, especially the chamomile is somehow exciting, but unfortunately has the nose and the mouth a bit musty that I do not like it.
    • Nose
      only subtle smoke, wet cloth, a little chamomile, with time the light pear, so typical of Balvenie, but covered with a slightly musty peat note.
    • Taste
      Chamomile, light peat, mineral, wet stone, a little bitterness, some cardboard.
    • Finish
      very tart, slightly tingling, some smoke, the chamomile I think so no longer, rather black tea.
