Balvenie Caribbean Cask 14 Year Old
One of the few distilleries to boast its own in-house floor maltings using locally hand-cut peat. The Balvenie Caribbean Cask 14 year old is a terrific multi award-winning malt aged in traditional oak casks for 14 years, and then ‘finished’ in casks that previously held Caribbean rum.
To create the ideal finish Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE 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.
