    Amazing stuff. I have been a single malt drinker for three decades and this is the smoothest, most delicious scotch I have drunk. The peat's smokey flavor is just right. I bought a single bottle, the ran back the next day to get a full case.

    Absolutley Outstanding! Nose: toffee and some smoke. Taste chocolate and charred toffee. I swear you can taste the sweet barely chared by the peat. I will be buying many more bottles. Worth every penny. Incredible. Plus the shipping from TWE was top class I got it in 6 days in america east coast.

    Worth commenting on a couple of points for those considering: this is not aggressively peated and certainly not "briny" or other such fear-inducing (for some) adjectives. It also has a surprisingly viscous mouth feel -- very classic, not unlike what Benromach is doing these days. Most un-Balvenie in that regard. All in all very nice, and for the Balvenie fan a considerable change of pace.

    Great offering from Balvenie. Love the fact that they use Highland peat vs traditional peat from say Islay. Great integration of classic Balvenie style layered with peat and smoke that's not overwhelming. After opening my first bottle, I quickly purchased two more.

    A very special Balvenie, butt a Balvenie. A litle smoke, notas much as you eypect and also the typical Balvenie notes: Honey, fruits and vanilla. As a Balvenie fan you must try it. With kind regarts from GERMANY!

    Have always liked Balvenie extra matured, but my favourite whisky is peated and smokey. This combines both very well and will look out for it next year.

    If you like peated whisky, then this is for you. It has that classic Balvenie taste and balance with a nice prominent but not overwhelming peatiness. Even my wife, who doesn't like peated whisky, likes this one. And for the price? I should have bought two bottles.

    Unequivocally 100% as described and great value If smoked peat does it for you, this one knocks it out of the ballpark

    Marvelous! The next level up from The Balvenie Peated Cask. Deliciously smooth peat with that amazing Balvenie style whisky.

    Nothing compared to Islay in terms of peat which is more than welcome as it balances a subtle speyside peat smoke with the quintessentially fruity and honeyed notes of Balvenie. Magical!
