Balvenie Caribbean Cask was created by The Balvenie Malt Master, David Stewart, who celebrated an incredible 50th anniversary at the distillery in 2012. 14 years maturation in traditional oak casks & finished in Caribbean rum casks. Expect notes of vanilla, toffee, nutmeg & subtle rum soaked raisins.
One of the first whiskies ever to be matured in former rum casks, this classic Balvenie is characterised by notes of toffee, vanilla and hints of fruit with enhanced flavours of sweet oak and spicy aromatics from a finishing maturation in rum casks from the Caribbean. The casks used here have a fascinating history, made to order for Balvenie, used to mature a proprietary rum blend, and finally shipped to the distillery.
