A Perfect Measure sample of the limited edition peated whisky from Balvenie. While Balvenie is best known for producing traditional soft and honeyed Speyside whisky, for one week a year it makes bold and smoky whisky – Peat Week. This second release was distilled in 2003 and bottled in 2018 at 14 years old.

The distillery uses Speyside peat, giving the whisky a very different character to smoky drams from the island: delicate and gently smoky.

    This is a delightful whisky. It has a mellow nose with hints of honey amidst a smoky bouquet. The flavor is delightful with a smooth yet pronounced hit to the back of the throat. If you are a hard core Islay drinker and/or the peatier the better crowd, this whisky is probably not the best one for you. The peat/smoky flavor from this whisky is not robust, it’s like burning a cherry log and smelling the sweetness of the embers compared to the acrid smell of oak. This Balvenie is a good way to introduce someone to peated whisky. Hope you enjoy.
