The Balvenie Caribbean Cask 14


As you can see from the bottle, this is my “go-to dram”! It’s aged in oak casks before being finished in casks that were previously home to Caribbean rum. It’s a fabulous golden colour that invites you to experience its warmth

The nose suggests creamy Macowans toffee and sweet fruits with loads of vanilla and a hint of ripened banana & salted caramel

The palette is initially overwhelmed by toffee and vanilla which then give way to sweet brown sugar and Crunchie-like honeycomb

The finish is long and warm and sweet with masses of vanilla. This dram has a magnificent mouth-feel and a lingering soft burn as it goes down

This is a truly special dram that I come back to again and again and I think you may fall in love too
