The Balvenie Releases a 14 Year Old Caribbean Cask

The Balvenie, the well-known handcrafted single malt Scotch whisky, has announced the latest addition to its collection of award-winning single malts in the UK – The Balvenie 14 Year Old Caribbean Cask.

The release is one of a number of exciting launches that The Balvenie Malt Master, David Stewart, is making available in the UK to coincide with the 50th anniversary of him joining the distillery. Crafted using a process pioneered by David known as ‘finishing’, this whisky has had a 14 year maturation period in traditional oak whisky casks, before being transferred to casks that previously held Caribbean rum to finish its aging process. The result is an exceptional single malt that exemplifies the signature smooth, honeyed character of The Balvenie, while adding unique notes of toffee and fruit that come from its innovative cask finish.

Commenting on the new release, David Stewart said: “We’ve found that many years maturation in traditional oak whisky casks followed by a few months of rum cask maturation complements The Balvenie single malt very well. This expression is a beautifully rounded 14-year-old whisky that combines traditional Balvenie vanilla notes with rich toffee, a hint of fruit and a warm, lingering finish.”
