Balvenie 17 Rum Cask Bottling Note

Only 1,920 bottles of this single malt were released for the UK market. This Balvenie offering was matured for 17 years in casks which previously held Jamaican rum.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Delicate. Notes of rich, yellow fruit and acacia honey with a soft buttery texture.

Palate: Very fruity, rich and ripe, with the allusion of bourbon from the toasty vanilla and soft Demerara.

Finish: Spicy oak and Muscovado sugar.

User Reviews of the Balvenie 17 Year Old Rum Cask


Obviously rum is not your standard whisky finish - and the first sniff is an usual one that could be off putting. But persevere, and this is simply gorgeous. I am not a big fan of Balvenie in general - especially don't care for the Doublewood - but this is altogether more complex. There is a spritz that is almost Bruichladdich passion fruit like, and some brown sugar/molasses. But at the back also plenty of Balvenie citrus, and a nice sweet warmth. Definitely one for sipping in front of a fire - or on a Caribbean beach? See - told you it was complex... And it is also out of stock. so this may be my last dram.
