This whisky has been matured for 14 years in traditional oak casks before being transferred to Caribbean rum casks to impart some extra flavour. This process has created a well-rounded and drinkable whisky with notes of fruit and vanilla.
Nose:The aroma is rich with notes of tropical fruits, namely passion fruit, and creamy toffee.
Palate:Sweet vanilla forms a creamy palate with notes of apples and mangoes with a hint of orange in the background.
Finish:The finish lingers with a vanilla focussed character.
Overall:Mouth-coating and fruity with superb balance, this is an excellent new release from the chaps at Balvenie.
