Whisky aficionados tend to rely on a certain badge, and its individual unique tasting notes too. That’s explicitly noticeable at the duty free shops, when the half of the passengers of the recently landed short-range plane directly storm the shops with that special glance in their eyes. However, we’ve to think and act progressively, especially in times of an approaching recession. Considering the vast spectrum of highly distinguished, and for years and decades established whiskies, it’s time to experience something new. William Grant & Sons developed a quite different single malt which uniqueness lies in the final maturation process. The Balvenie GoldenCask 14 Year Old was matured first in traditional oak whisky casks before spending a final period of maturation in rum casks which has imbued it a fruity sweetness and a spicy touch. Definitely not the choice of the quite enthusiast, but a tasteful experience.
