Balvenie 14 year old Caribbean Cask

Balvenie 14 year old is another great whisky from this famous Speyside distillery located in Dufftown. This single malt has been aged for 14 long years in ex-bourbon barrels and rum casks. It has a superb nose and palate bursting with rich and sweet notes. 

Balvenie Distillery

Balvenie distillery is located in Dufftown. It was built in 1892 on the site of a mansion. The original name of the distillery was Glen Gordon but it was quickly changed. Not an awful lot happened at the distillery other than continuous and almost uninterrupted production until 1957. On that year the production capacity of the distillery was doubled.

The first Balvenie single malt was released in 1973. Up until then the vast majority of its production was used in blends. After Kininvie distillery was built in 1990 some more Balvenie whisky could be sold as a single malt.

The whisky produced at Balvenie derives its character from the usage of sturdy and short pot stills. A short fermentation period is also preferred.
