Balvenie's newest edition to the range is a limited edition Carribean Rum finish. This whisky has had a 14 year maturation in traditional oak, before being transferred to casks that previously held Caribbean rum to finish its aging process.
The result is an exceptional single malt that exemplifies the signature smooth, honeyed character of The Balvenie, while adding unique notes of toffee and fruit that come from its innovative cask finish.
Master Distiller David Stewart says Weve found that many years maturation in traditional oak whisky casks followed by a few months of rum cask maturation beautifully rounds our 14yo whisky that combines traditional Balvenie vanilla notes with rich toffee, a hint of fruit and a warm, lingering finish.
Nose: Rich, sweet and creamy toffee on the nose combines with fresh fruit notes
Taste: Rounded with vanilla and sweet oak notes, with a fruity character that develops with time
Finish: Soft and lingering
