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.

Tasting Notes:

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

Awards/Reviews

Gold - Intl Spirits Challenge 2023, 2021

95 Points - Intl Wine & Spirits Competition 2023

"Floral and fruity on a nicely balanced nose that evolves beautifully into an intensely spicy palate. Aromas of an abundance of clove, cooked apple and poached pear; perfectly complimented by vanilla creamy notes."

Gold - SF World Spirits Competition 2021

93 Points, Excellent/Highly Recommended - Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2021

"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
"After regular maturation, this Scotch is “extra matured” in former rum casks. The end result layers rich, mouth-coating dried apricot, honey and Sherry notes on top of Balvenie's usual caramel and light peat profile. It finishes flavorful, though with a distinct burst of alcohol warmth."

"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
