Balvenie 14 Year Old Caribbean Cask Whisky (70cl)

New

Matured in traditional oak whisky casks for 14 years, and then 'finished' in casks that previously held Caribbean rum. To create the ideal finish the Malt Master filled American oak casks with his own blend of select West Indian rums. When he judged the casks to be ready, the rum was replaced with the 14 year old spirit and the wood was put to work adding the final touches. The result is an exceptional single malt whisky with the traditional smooth, honeyed character of The Balvenie.

    In days gone by, the 'Dipping Dog' would have been employed by thirsty employees at the Balvenie distillery to pilfer whisky by lowering a cylinder into a cask. On retrieving it, its canny owner would have secured his haul by tightly sealing the opening with a cork.

    Then the precious contents would have been gently lowered down the employee's trouser leg by a piece of rope and tethered to his belt. The cylinder became know as a 'dog' on account of it being a man's best friend that, like its canine counterpart, was also kept on a lead by one's side.

    Today this ingenious contraption is utilised by the Malt Master, David Stewart when sampling an expression directly from the cask.
