Balvenie 14 Year Old Caribbean Rum Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1060216 92 points Wine Enthusiast

 After regular maturation, this Scotch is “extra matured” in former rum casks. The end result layers rich, mouth-coating dried apricot, honey and Sherry notes on top of Balvenie's usual caramel and light peat profile. It finishes flavorful, though with a distinct burst of alcohol warmth. (KN)  (12/2015)

Whisky Advocate

 A new addition to the permanent Balvenie range. Lovely bright gold color. Layers of sweetness (the characteristic Balvenie honey, along with vanilla fudge, nougat, and rich toffee) peppered with dried spice and a hint of tropical fruit (papaya, guava, tangerine). Nice viscosity with good grip on the finish. I really like the balance and complexity of this whisky. A very solid effort and the price is right. (JH, Winter 2010)

K&L Notes

This exciting new expression follows the acclaim of 2008's limited-edition Balvenie 17 Year Old Rum Cask, and the subsequent popularity of rum-cask-finished whiskies. This is a whisky that bears all the hallmarks of Balvenie, with an added level of complexity that comes from finishing the whisky in casks that once held Caribbean rum. After a 14-year maturation period in traditional oak whisky casks, the Balvenie is then transferred to the rum casks, leading to 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.

The wildly popular Caribbean cask was thought to be a thing of legend, but William Grant has heard the people and re-released this special offering at only a slight markup! When they say Caribbean, they mean a large Spanish-speaking island whose name I cannot mention. The result is perfect and utterly enticing. Sweet, rich and spicy notes from the rum envelop the oily Speyside character of the Balvenie spirit perfectly. A match made on a beach in the Caribbean, i.e. HEAVEN!
