About the Producer:
Caribbean Cask has been matured in traditional oak whisky casks for 14 years, and then finished in casks that previously held Caribbean rum.
To create the ideal finish, Malt Master David Stewart filled American oak casks with his own blend of select West Indian rums. When he judged the casks to be ready, the rum was replaced with the 14 year old spirit and the wood was put to work adding the final touches.
The result is an exceptional single malt whisky with the traditional smooth, honeyed character of The Balvenie, married with notes of toffee and a hint of fruit, with a warm, lingering finish.
NOSE: Rich, sweet and creamy toffee on the nose combines with fresh fruit notes
TASTE: Rounded with vanilla and sweet oak notes, with a fruity character that develops with time
FINISH: Soft and lingering

"Treacle tart and apple sauce with pears poached in red wine and gentle cinnamon spice. Soft and creamy with an abundance of apples and an appealingly spicy, long finish."

"The aromas are sweet and spiced with toffee and baking spices. Fruity notes come out in the mouth, along with creamy vanilla, and warming spices of mace and clove. The finish is wooded and full of nutmeg."92 Pts - Wine Enthusiast
"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." - Whisky Advocate
