The Balvenie Reveals Unique Whisky Finish

Jack Bettridge
Posted: August 20, 2010

(continued from page 1)

Finish: The finish is medium to long with hard candy, fruit and cinnamon. This is a multifaceted malt worth adding to your collection bragging-rights whisky.

BALVENIE 14-YEAR-OLD CARIBBEAN CASK

Appearance: Light color, slight green tinge, quick legs.

Nose: Dried fruits and bananas play well with honey and caramel or toffee.

Palate: Very island-spicy influenced on the tongue. Cloves and licorice mix with Tiki spices and orange marmalade.

Finish: Ends with flavors of the palate, softly dying down like an old television picture tube when it’s turned off, and disappears into one insistent dot in the middle.
