Balvenie 14YO Caribbean Cask 700ml
A terrific award winning single malt from The Balvenie. On the nose, rich, sweet and creamy toffee on the nose combines with fresh fruit notes. On the palate, rounded with vanilla and sweet oak notes, with a fruity character that develops with time. A soft and lingering finish.
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.
