The Balvenie 14 Year Old Caribbean Cask

Even though this family-owned Speyside distillery grows some of its own barley, does its own maltings, makes its own barrels, and even has an on-site coppersmith to tend its stills, it went off-site to acquire a number of Caribbean rum casks in which to “finish” its 14-year-old single malt. After four additional months of aging in oak rum barrels, this gentle whisky has taken on additional notes of green apple, citrus, and candied fruit.
