A 14-year-old limited-edition Balvenie which finished its maturation in casks which had previously held Caribbean rum. Expect vanilla and toffee notes as the rum contributes extra sweetness to the flavours.

    Nose: Brown sugar, butter and nutmeg – buttered rum mix, before you add the rum. With that, there's shortbread, golden syrup and sweet Muscat grapes.

    Palate: Apples, lemons, icing sugar and brown toast, with syrup, caramel and toffee popcorn.

    Finish: White toast with Golden Syrup, freshly sawn oak and a touch of stewed apple.

    If you want to introduce someone to scotch this would be a good choice. I enjoyed the double wood as well but this is the one I will buy from now on. I am going to enjoy my third bottle over the next few months.

    Excellent dram, definitely a toffee flavour in there, but it has way more complexity to.

    There is no doubt this has a less strong taste and is much smoother then the Balvenie 12 year old doublewood. This 14 year old is smooth to drink and it definitely has a toffee smell. However even here its ranked a 4 for sweetness and Balevine even says on the bottle that it has fruity flavour. I love sweet whiskies and I don't get a massive sweet or fruity taste. It is not a bad whisky but I think there are other whiskies out there in the 12 to 14 year old market that are much better value, for example the Clynelish 14 year old.

    Enjoying it right now. So smooth. Classic whisky taste with a sweet toffee finish. Fantastic.

    I'm usually a Macallan man but I decided to try something different at my local cigar bar. Man was I pleasantly surprised by this Balvenie 14. I'll be adding a bottle of this to my scotch collection for sure.

    A favourite of mine however my most recent bottle was not as warm and smooth as previous ones. Hopefully a one off!

    Not worth the price, bland taste, go with the McCallan 12.

    With its strong whiskey taste, it is a smooth full flavour 5 star drink one to drink after everyone has gone home and you've locked the door and sit by an open fire perfect .

    This Balvenie is just stunning, far better than the 12 year old

    I’m wondering whether it’s being rushed through the rum seasoning. Not as smooth as flavours soon as I remember to be. May just be this bottle

    Not that good. Overpriced. Not as smooth as I'd hope. Quite flavourless. Truth be told I expected more considering the 30 years was very very good.

    The Balvenie Caribbean Cask has jumped to my favourite malt sweet and spicy with a hint of rum in the background delicious
