The Balvenie Caribbean Cask 14 YO single malt whisky has been matured in traditional oak whisky casks for 14 years, then finished in casks that previously held Caribbean rum.
To create the ideal finish American oak casks were filled with Balvenie's own blend of select West Indian rums.
When 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.
An excellent example of the high standards of the Balvenie distillery.
