Balvenie 14 Year Caribbean Cask
After a 14 year maturation period in traditional oak whisky casks, the Balvenie is then transferred to the rum casks. Signature smooth, honeyed character of the Balvenie, while adding unique notes of toffee and fruit from its innovative cask finish.
To create the ideal finish Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE 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. Raw Craft is an online film series from The Balvenie and Anthony Bourdain celebrating all things craft. In the Raw Craft series, Bourdain traveled across America to discover the unique skills of some of its most talented and dedicated craftspeople, from hand-tailored suits to cast iron skillets, to snare drums made out of whisky casks. Anthony was our dear friend and collaborator, and he is greatly missed. His legacy and influence live on through the love of raw craft.
