The Balvenie Caribbean Cask Single Malt Scotch 14 Years Old is a bloody masterpiece. I wish I could put it in a different and more dignified way but that’s the size of it: Masterpiece. It was spawned by the success of the original rum-aged Balvenie, Balvenie Rum Cask, which debuted in 2008 to worldwide fanfare. I never got to taste it – see the “wwwwwy too cheap” thing above – but a friend sent me an email about it which said, in part, “…if you can peel the moss off your wallet long enough to extract three twenties, you can go get something which I guarantee will make you pee down both legs.” Seldom have I been presented with a less appealing metaphor, so I deleted the email and got on with my life.
