This was my least favourite of the 6 malts we had - but I still liked it a lot! Non-chill filtered and with natural colour, so very light, straw. Almost like a light rum, somehow. Nose also brought out that light rum, with tropical fruits (banana) and some vanilla. Bit of a salty sea taste with more tropical fruit, more rum, rather sweet. The sweet goes nicely with the salty. Hot finish but medium length. Complex Scotch but the rum notes are not totally to my taste - still, very nice and surprising.

Outta curiosity - have you ever tried the Balvenie 14 yr Caribbean Cask?

If so - how do these 2 whisky's compare to one another?

I tried the Caribbean Cask a few years ago, actually at the Balvenie distillery! It was part of a tasting paired with desserts at the Speyside Whisky Festival. That day is pretty much a blur - but I do remember liking it. Hard to go wrong with Balvenie....
