THE BALVENIE 14YCARIBBEAN CASK 

The Balvenie Caribbean Cask 14 year old single malt whisky has been matured in traditional oak whisky casks for 14 years, and then ‘finished’ in casks that previously held Caribbean rum.

Balvenie Caribbean Cask Bottling Note
A terrific single malt from The Balvenie. This Speysider was initially aged in traditional oak casks before it was finished in casks which previously held Caribbean rum, imparting some extra sweetness and warmth to the whisky. In fact, to create it, Balvenie malt master David C. Stewart made his very own blend of West Indian rums, filled it into casks, and then eventually replaced the rum in said casks with Balvenie's whisky! The fabulous result is a well-rounded whisky with notes of toffee, fruit and vanilla.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose
The aroma is rich with notes of tropical fruits, namely passion fruit, and creamy toffee.

Palate
Sweet vanilla forms a creamy palate with notes of apples and mangoes with a hint of orange in the background.

Finish 
The finish lingers with a vanilla focused character.

Overall
Mouth-coating and fruity with superb balance, this is an excellent new release from the chaps at Balvenie.
