The Caribbean Cask's rich amber copper color looks like pure Vermont maple syrup.
This single malt's rich nose is inviting and seduces you with citrus, honey, banana, vanilla wrapped with hints of sweet cream and cedar.
The flavor does not disappoint and is like maple syrup and pancakes infused with banana, vanilla, cream and soap.  The flavor has a distinct prickly cactus feel to it.
The finish is medium to long and has distinct notes of cream, oil, sherry, fruit and some salt.
Balvenie's Caribbean Cask is especially good, well rounded, rich and complex.  It's a fabulous dram!
