Note: Like some previous advent calendar entries, I have already reviewed the Balvenie Caribbean Cask. In fact, I loved it and it's one of my favourite whiskies of the year. Here are my tasting notes.
Nose: Tropical fruits such as mango, pineapple and tart passion fruit are immediately obvious. Let the whisky settle and toffee apple, fudge, raisins and sweet vanilla custard start to appear.
Palate: Very sweet, with pineapple, honey, almonds and warming spices
Finish: Delicious, with hints of a raspberry and almond slice, lemon curd and golden fruit.
