|OVERVIEW||The 2010 release of Balvenie 17yo is a bit of a curio, having been re-racked after inital normal maturation into casks that previously held...a peated Balvenie?! So this is a peated finish rather than a peated whisky. The smoke is there, but not as full-frontal as you'd get if the spirit itself was peated. A very interesting experiment, and we await the peated Balvenie that previously graced the casks with eager interest.|
Gentle floral aroma with hints of violet and lavender. Delicate smoke beautifully balanced with honeyed vanilla and spicy oakiness.
Prominent smoke softens to reveal oaky honey and vanilla. Cinnamon and nutmeg develop with time.
Sweet and spicy with a hint of smoke.
