Balvenie 14 Year Caribbean Cask-Life Cafe 983

By Andy “McMills”, the Whiskey Dude

Attention: The Balvenie Tasting Event has been pushed back to Thursday, November 10th, from 8 to 10 pm at Life Cafe 983.

Balvenie 14yr Caribbean Cask Scotch

Okay, I was almost as confused as you. I’m now not only the Beer Dude but also the Whiskey Dude. I accept that gracious title for our upcoming Balvenie Scotch Tasting event. Just don’t expect me in a kilt.

I’m not entirely sure why they beat around the bush with the categorization of this one, but substitute “Caribbean” for “Rum Barrel.” A few years ago, Balvenie released a 17-year-old version of this product with amazing success, to which the word “rum” was attached. They started the process by aging the whisky for a full 14 years in oak whisky casks, and finished it in used rum barrels, The end product is rich, rounded and malty.

Re-mark your calendar for November 10th at 8 to 10 pm. Sorry, sorry, we expected it to be on November 5th, but the New York supervisor for Balvanie got called away for something urgent so we’re doing it a week later. No bother, it gives us more time to increase your knowledge about these fine Scotches. And it doesn’t prevent you from coming in beforehand to get yourself a taste either.

Anyway, what the hell!! If they don’t turn up we’ll just drink their scotch. So, get yourself in here now!
