Terrific single malt from The Balvenie. This Speysider was initially aged in traditional oak casks before it was finished in casks which previously held Caribbean rum.
The aroma is rich with notes of tropical fruits, namely passion fruit, and creamy toffee. Sweet vanilla forms a creamy palate with notes of apples and mangoes with a hint of orange in the background. The finish lingers with a vanilla focussed character.
