Balvenie 14 Year Caribbean Cask - Exceptional. Rich. Smooth
The finest whiskies are those that have been properly aged, and The Balvenie 14 Year Caribbean Cask is one among them. It was aged for 14 years in standard oak whiskey barrels before being 'finished' in barrels previously housed Caribbean rum.
Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE blended American oak casks with his unique blend of prime West Indian rums to get the perfect finish.
When he thought the casks were ready, he replaced the rum with the 14-year-old spirit and put the wood to work, finishing the job.
The result is a superb single malt whisky that combines The Balvenie's characteristic smooth, honeyed flavor with notes of caramel and a hint of fruit, finishing warm and lingering.

Balvenie Caribbean Cask - Scotch Drinking 101
Balvenie 14 Year Caribbean Cask has a robust flavor that compliments any scotch cocktail. Here are a few tips that you might find helpful.
First, you may be attracted to swirl your scotch (like you would a wine), but resist! Swirling unleashes alcohol, which may overpower the scotch's accurate flavor profile.
Second, scotch is traditionally served with spring waterside (tap water may interfere with the taste). If preferred, pour water in small increments to preference.
Third, if you want a cold scotch, fill your glass with ice instead of adding one or two cubes. Adding more ice to your scotch helps keep it cool without diluting too much.
Fourth, foods with intense flavors, such as smoked salmon and strong cheeses, go well with scotch (blue or aged cheddar).
Finally, scotch does not have to be reserved for consumption! Desserts can benefit from the smoky flavor of this whisky.
