Whisky Advent Calendar: Day 16/24 - Balvenie Caribbean Cask - 14 years old - 43%

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.
