The long maturation in traditional oak whisky casks gives this 17 Year Old its characteristic Balvenie vanilla notes, while the finishing period in rum cask adds a further layer of richness, warmth and spice. The result immediately evokes the warm climes of the sugar cane growing area of the Tropics – an intensely floral and fruity nose and a beautifully sweet taste with subtle spiciness, enveloped in a gentle silky oakiness.’ – Distillery
