This is a 14 year old Balvenie expression that was finished in Carribean rum casks and bottled at 43% ABV.
Nose: Honeyed malt with cane sugar. Very rum like with dry oak and molasses.
Palate: Slightly bitter with heather, strong malt profile, and a kick of pepper.
Finish: Very little to no finish – hint of cane sugar remains with the oak.
Rating: 76/100 – Rum finish is interesting but otherwise remains fairly uninteresting.
Value for the money: This runs around $65-$75 but I would pass on it at that price.
