Whisky Review: Balvenie 14 Year Old Caribbean Cask

Tasting Notes: Balvenie Caribbean Cask

The Balvenie make their own rum to flavour their rum cask and create this masterpiece of a dram. Now that’s dedication! The Balvennie Carribean Cask is a perfectly balanced 14 year old whisky and packed with complexity. A great dram for those ready to learn more about how casks change the flavour of whisky.

Aroma: Pronounced aroma of gorgeous tropical fruits. Sweet ripe banana and overpowering pineapple notes on the nose.

Palate: There is a rich palate, spicy nutmeg balanced with tropical fruits mango and pineapple. Delicious sweet nougat, brown sugar and raisins.

Finish: Medium long spicy black pepper finish. Walnut and dried fruit notes in there too!

We try this dram with the Balvenie ambassadors Gemma Patterson and Jamie Johnson on Episode 3 Season 2.
