Scotland and the Caribbean in one bottle.

The Balvenie distillery is the life work of William Grant. Born in Dufftown, Scotland, William began his life as a cattle herder, and later worked as a shoemaker apprentice until he became a bookkeeper at the Mortlach distillery. There he found his love of making the Water of Life.

After twenty years of studying, and mastering the trade, he bought a field near Balvenie castle and laid the foundations for what was later to become the Balvenie Distillery. His work gave this Speyside single malt a true mark of quality and uniqueness that has been respected and cherished ever since.

The Balvenie 14 Year Old Caribbean Cask has been matured in traditional oak casks for 14 years and finished in casks that held Caribbean Rum before. The duality of character in this bottle is what we respect, and enjoy. It’s the best of Scotland and the Caribbean in one Bottle.

Great
 
Jerry
Jerry,
This one has grown on me. I’m getting some citrus fruit and vanilla notes. Apple and pear as well as smoke in the palate. A very clean, smooth finish.
 
Mathew
Mathew,
This is one of my favorites. Apple and pear nose. Tastes of caramel and honey with a fruity note and a hint of spice in the finish.
 
Logan
Logan,
Rivals more expensive bottles in my opinion. If you like stronger citrus/fruit notes in your scotch, this one is for you. Very smooth.
 
Jon
Jon,
We love it so much we took time out from our wedding to go home and share a drink of it with our photographer.
 
Mike
Mike,
I absolutely love this scotch. I am a big fan of the slight sweetness imparted by the rum cask finish. Well balanced, a hint of spice, and a slight warmth. Delicious on the rocks, with a splash of water, or even neat.
 
Jernique
Jernique,
This is review is actually fir the 14 year old Peat Week “2003 Vintage”. I couldn’t find it on Flaviar but from a well known store. It is a great drink. So Peaty and Smokey. It is unbelievably great tasting. It is clear and you would think it would be Amber or dark. This is a great Highland & Islay peat. There is a honey sweet, spicey ending that is great after the kick in the mouth. You’ve got to try it. 48.2% all./vol. so it is also strong. I hope Flaviar gets this eventually, but I don’t know how to suggest it to them.
 
Michael
Michael,
Pleasantly smooth, light scotch, definitely can taste the cask
 
Mike
Mike,
Excellent flavor. Both sweet from the Rum barrels and smooth. Not peety or smokey but long flavor. Excellent value.
 
Joshua
Joshua,
Excellent balance of cinnamon hints, floral, and smoke.
 
Ben
Ben,
Nose: raisins, brown sugar, rum, touch of cloves, citrus, hint of pineapple. Taste: Apples, chili heat, pepper, a little sweet caramel. A well made spirit, I wanted to love this one but couldn’t get as much complexity of flavor as I’d like at this price point.
 
Jason
Jason,
The maturation process in rum casks really deprecates this from other scotches. A delicious and refreshing drink.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Great bottle. Definitely a go-to.
 
Marcus
Marcus,
Great balance of smoke and fruit! Can definitely taste the rum influence.
 
Aubony
Aubony,
so smooth. great price point. not super complex, but it doesn't need to be when it is this smooth. great neat. mild nose but you can smell the rum and it is really great. the hints of fruit and spice are just the right amount. a really well balanced, reasonably priced single malt.

Love this whisky
 
Michael
Michael,
Still fairly new into trying new scotches, but so far this one has been my favorite. Really smooth and full of flavor. Not too bad on the wallet either. Definitely going to pick up another bottle.
 
Hope
Hope,
My favorite go-to Whisky. It’s smooth and on the sweeter side. It’s perfect neat or with just a tiny bit of water. Everyone who tries it raves about it. A must have for any whisky enthusiast.
 
Bernardo
Bernardo,
One of the best at this price range! thoroughly enjoyed the interesting aromas and fine taste of a rum cask. Definitely recommend it smooth and tasteful
 
Brian
Brian,
The sweeter side opened up with some ice
 
Eric
Eric,
Smooth, easy drinker that’s just different enough to surprise but still reminds me of the sherry finish I enjoy. Honey, mild oak on the nose with aromas of rum bringing up the rear. Vanilla, toffee and tropical fruits you’d expect from a rum on the palate. Medium finish the ends with a flurry of spice.
 
Danton
Danton,
I have two of these and it’s a very great complex dram for the price.
 
Jeremy
Jeremy,
Sweet and very smooth,
 
Abel
Abel,
Good but the 12 is still more solid.
 
Mikel
Mikel,
I love the almost roughly rum profile that hits your mouth and then mellows out into the more complex flavor!
 
Russ
Russ,
We are very fond of Sherry Cask examples. A friend told me his favorite was a rum cask finish. My wife is fond of Rum in beach drinks so I bought the Balvenie Caribbean Cask 14. A very smooth and tasty dram. The influence of the Rum casks is a nice change from the typical Sherry Bomb. When this bottle was empty the wife actually bought a replacement without being asked. She's a keeper :-)
 
Stephen
Stephen,
A graciously smoothe Scotch. A happy new addition to my bar.
 
Joe
Joe,
Bought a bottle of this for a friends wedding, so good it didn't make it past the vows!
 
Craig
Craig,
This is one of my frequent go to bottles! I love the Balvenie 12 year aged the extra 2 years with all those rum sugars.
 
Nicholas
Nicholas,
Great flavor, got a hint of pineapple. Great find for me, as I'm new to this
 
Ryan
Ryan,
I loved this!!!
 
Eric
Eric,
A lovely light Scotch. The rum flavors are easy to note. I taste a bit of vanilla. Enjoyable. It will be on my bar in the summer months for sure.
 
Eduardo
Eduardo,
Well done, sweet, smooth and balanced. Nice vanilla and pineapple aroma
 
Edward
Edward,
A bit too much bite until you let the ice melt a little. Has some strong spice, but gets really good as the melting ice mellows it.
 
chris
chris,
Smooth, a little spicy with hints of Rum..good bang for the buck.
 
Mike
Mike,
The flavor is smooth and has all kinds of thing going on in it
 
Lena
Lena,
Love the finish from the run casks. Completely different from the 12 year.
 
Jacqueline
Jacqueline,
This spirit reminds me of Christmas. It is spicy, mildly sweet finish, and light on peat. Yummy!
 
Sudesh
Sudesh,
Loved it, could taste hints of aged rum. Straight up or with very little ice is the best way to savour this dram.
 
Guillermo
Guillermo,
Nice and sweet, smooth but a little harsh at the end. Overall a good scotch.

Justin
Justin,
The Balvenie 12 is one of my favorite every day Scotches, so I was very excited to try this Caribbean Cask 14 year. It was good, but not all I had hoped for. I will stick with other variants of the Balvenie line, unless some offers me a glass for free of course.
 
Christian
Christian,
A wonderful scotch. Rum barrel adds a nice little finish not usually associated with scotch. Little pricy for what it is in my opinion.
 
Ty
Ty,
Very enjoyable dram, but the Rum cask finish doesn't seem to add anything distinctive. For me, it tastes so similar to the standard Doublewood 12, that it's not worth the extra cash.
 
todd
todd,
You can almost taste the rum! Lots of camarel and spice. Minimal burn going down. There is minimal dryness in the finish
 
Roland
Roland,
The best no need to say more...

guest
guest,
Great aroma. Personally, I find it to be pretty intense and the burn fairly heavy... But I kind of like that. I wouldn't recommend it for a beginner (try dalwhinnie 15 or chivas gold 18) but it's a great scotch.
 
Israel
Israel,
A delicious bottle you'll want to have as a staple. This is one of those bottles you can finish off and not be able to wait to replenish the bar with.
