The Balvenie Scotch Single Malt 14 Year Caribbean Cask

Caribbean Cask has been matured in traditional oak whisky casks for 14 years, and then ‘finished’ in casks that preciously held Caribbean rum. To create the ideal finish Malt Master David Stewart, 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, married with notes of toffee and a hint of fruit, with a warm, lingering finish.

After regular maturation, this Scotch is “extra matured” in former rum casks. The end result layers rich, mouth-coating dried apricot, honey and Sherry notes on top of Balvenie’s usual caramel and light peat profile. It finishes flavorful, though with a distinct burst of alcohol warmth.

A new addition to the permanent Balvenie range. Lovely bright gold color. Layers of sweetness (the characteristic Balvenie honey, along with vanilla fudge, nougat, and rich toffee) peppered with dried spice and a hint of tropical fruit (papaya, guava, tangerine). Nice viscosity with good grip on the finish. I really like the balance and complexity of this whisky. A very solid effort and the price is right. (Winter 2010) Reviewed by: John Hansell

Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2011 Finalist. Concentrated aromas of sawdust/wood plank and brown sugar are prevalent; toasty, rum-like, molasses tastes match up well with sweet bouquet.
