Balvenie 14 year old Caribbean Cask Description
The Caribbean cask has been matured in traditional oak whisky casks for 14 years, and then finished in casks which previously held rum.
To create the ideal finish the Malt Master filled American oak casks with his own blend of select West Indian rums. When he judged the casks to be ready, the rum was replaced with the 14 year old spirit and the wood was put to work adding the final touches. The result is an exceptional single malt whisky with the traditional smooth, honeyed character of The Balvenie.
Nose: Rich and sweet - creamy rum and raisin toffee.
Palate: Rich fruity character develops through the sweet oak and vanilla.
Finish: long with soft lingering sweetness.
