Balvenie Peat Week 14 year old (2003 Vintage), 48.3%

Price: $99 Issue: Fall 2018 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

This follows the first limited release of the 2002 vintage Peat Week. Like its predecessor, this was distilled during the distillery's annual week of peated production. Significantly peatier on the nose than the 2002, with Islay-like phenols backed by sweet floral notes. Sweet smoke, vanilla, citrus fruits, and honey on the bold palate, while the finish features more vanilla and honey, plus spicy bonfire smoke.
