The Balvenie Caribbean Cask 14 Years Old

 

As part of the celebrations to mark his 50 years at the distillery, The Balvenie Malt Master, David Stewart is making The Balvenie Caribbean Cask 14 Years Old available in the UK.
Caribbean Cask joins our collection of single malts to form part of our new core range, which will include The Balvenie DoubleWood, Aged 12 years, Caribbean Cask, Aged 14 years, the soon to be released DoubleWood, Aged 17 years and PortWood, Aged 21 years.
Caribbean Cask has been matured in traditional oak whisky casks for 14 years, and then ‘finished’ for a few months in casks that had previously held Caribbean rum.
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.
Caribbean Cask is now available at specialist retailers and will also soon be found at Waitrose and Tesco.

It is no news that craftsmanship is at the heart of The Balvenie’s ethos. It permeates everything we do, from the whisky we make to the craftspeople we work with around the world.
