Introduced to the market in June 2017, this Balvenie release is set to be a permanent travel retail exclusive. The whisky harkens days past when Speyside whisky distilleries used to use peat in their whiskies. This peated single malt is non-chill-filtered and is aged, as the name suggests, in three types of casks: first-fill bourbon, refill bourbon, and sherry. The distillery normally dedicates just one week a year, known to them as Peat Week, to using peated barley in its production. This is said to produce a different style of whisky with enhanced smoky notes. The Peated Triple Cask expression was the result of trials put on by The Balvenie’s Malt Master David Stewart MBE and Ian Millar, former distillery manager and current Prestige Whiskies Specialist at William Grant & Sons.

Member Ratings and Notes
Ries
 
Creamy dried figs mixed with a vanilla caramel, burnt wheat toast, and citrus/clove note in middle. Spiced honey. More intense in the peat profile compared to "Peat Week," but a thin, quick finish.
 
More pronounced in the dried dark fruit, peat, black peppercorns, and earthy oak.
