Balvenie 14 Caribbean Cask

balvenie-caribbean-cask

Community review time! This was reviewed as part of a three part dram tasting I did at my local pub. This was the “baby” of the three, even though it’s technically the second oldest of the bunch.

Huh, confused myself. Off to a good start on this review. Let’s do the rest in pirate to ensure I go right off the bell-end.

Region: Speyside

Abv: 43%

Price: $103.45

Colour: Golden Rum (Such a cop out)

Nose: Bananas, wort, brown sugar, lily, papaya, rotten veggies, marmalade, lemon tart

I be expectin’ a heavy rum smell, an’ this married well wi’ th’ typical Balvenie. Quite nice, howere I wish thar be one or two more voyages in th’ casks.

Taste: Caramel, clove, nutmeg, Thai chili, lime, banana bread, sourdough, chocolate, raspberry, vanilla cake, pepper, starch

Really bready taste here, which takes some time t’ get used t’. Th’ Balvenie sweetness pairs well…
