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.

Appearance / Color
Bright gold.

Smell / Nose / Aroma
Tropical flavors are vivid and the fruits such as passion fruit and pineapple are more than present.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
Silky touch of well-rounded vanilla with oak and spices with the tropical fruits playing rumba in the background.

Finish
The finish over delivers all of the above stated and promised aromas in a fading serenity and stability. Yup we do love a single malt and we do love Rum, and with this we just kill two birds with one stone… Ouyeah, birds are down!

Dog Dogson's Smartass corner
Character Dogson
The Balvenie sits directly across from Glenfiddich, and they share the same water source -- the Robbie Dubh stream -- that runs into the Fiddich River.
There are more than 120 active distilleries in Scotland. Of those, only six have their own malting floor, and Balvanie is one of them.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
