The Balvenie Caribbean Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky has a bouquet of sweet vanilla and toffee, along with a touch of candied fruits. The aroma gives way to notes of dried fruits (particularly pears), molasses and honeyed oak on the palate, which are well-complemented by hints of mellow caramel and butterscotch. The finish is soft and elegant, and ends with with a lingering flavour.

The Balvenie distillery in Dufftown was built in 1892 by W. & J. Grant, owners of the Glenfiddich distillery nearby. More than a century later they are still 'sister stills', owned by the very same company that originally built them. When the distillery was built in 1892 it was outfitted with second-hand still from Lagavulin and Glen Albyn. This might seem a bit odd at first, but the use of second hand stills is actually not that uncommon. These days Balvenie has no less than eight stills.
