Hello,

Joerg Yoki's Whisky Tasting - Part 2

Title: The Balvenie Caribbean Cask (14 Years)
Distillery: The Balvenie Distillery Company
Established: 1892
Place, region, country: Dufftown, Speyside, Scotland
Master Distiller: David C. Stewart (now retired)
Variety: Single malt Scotch Whisky
Aged: 14 years
Alcohol content: 43%
Information of the Distillery: The Balvenie Caribbean Cask 14 year old single malt whisky has been matured in traditional oak whisky casks for 14 years, and then ‘finished’ in casks that previously held Caribbean rum.
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.
Colour: Golden bronze (with dye (caramel) for even coloring)
Chill filtered: N/A
Nose: Sweet and creamy toffee on the nose combines with fresh fruit and Rum notes
Taste: Rounded with vanilla and sweet oak notes, with a fruity and Rum character that develops with time
Finish: Warm, soft, lingering and light rum notes (not smoky)
Rating of Joerg Yoki: 5 of 10 stars
Date of rating: 24/May/2020



Cheers Joerg Yoki dh:) dh:)

Yep John,
10 points will be difficult to reach B) .
It is a very good Whisky. For me personally, the Rum comes through a little too much.
Of course it's a matter of taste.

All the best
