Absolutely love the rum cask finish on this Balvenie 14
Awesome rum finished Balvennie 14! This one is a BevMo bargain at $74...look around for rum finished single malt and you won't find many below $100! Body is medium but smooth. Wonderful creamy vanilla & caramel, nice rum background, a little cocoanut, perhaps maple syrup...good long finish. The kind of dram you think about and want again. My number one scotch! Well done Balvenie!

Rum cask finished scotch makes for a grand dram
This Balvenie rum finished 14 yr scotch is really good. Smooth toffee and vanilla notes are very easy to enjoy. Not many scotch distilleries are finishing single malts with rum casks, so Balvenie has produced an interesting & an unusual scotch here, with a 43% ABV it's a solid addition to the permanent US market lineup. This one goes to the front row of my scotch cabinet! Highly recommended !
