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.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Colour
Bright gold.

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

Flavour / 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!

Lou
A great all around scotch, unique and interesting, complimented nicely by a hint of rum in both smell and taste
anonymous
So delicious and sweet!
Jon
Smooth vanilla, caramel, oak spices and delicious rum influence without overwhelming the scotch..
Justin
Amazing
Jonathon
Very smooth, sweet rum notes
anonymous
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
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.

Smooth vanilla, delicious rum, maple syrup, a little fruit in background
Matthew

My favourite release from The Balvenie. The flavours and aromas imparted by the casks make this whisky one to try.
