Balvenie 14 Yr Caribbean Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 750ml

The Balvenie Distillery lies at the very heart of Speyside, in the Scottish Highlands. In early 1892 work began to convert an 18th century mansion, Balvenie New House, into a distillery. The Balvenie has launched The Balvenie 14 Year Old Caribbean Cask to mark the 50th anniversary of malt master David Stewart joining the distillery. The whisky has had a 14-year maturation period in traditional oak whisky casks, before being “finished” in Caribbean rum casks for its aging process. Stewart said: “We’ve found that many years’ maturation in traditional oak whisky casks followed by a few months of rum cask maturation complements The Balvenie single malt very well. This expression is a beautifully rounded 14-year-old whisky that combines traditional Balvenie vanilla notes with rich toffee, a hint of fruit and a warm, lingering finish.”
