Description

The Balvenie Doublewood Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a 12 year old single malt which gains its distinctive character from being matured in two woods. During its period of maturation The Balvenie Doublewood is transferred from a traditional oak whisky cask to a first fill Spanish oak sherry cask. Each stage lends different qualities to the resulting single malt – the traditional casks, having previously held bourbon, soften and add character, whilst the sherry wood brings depth and fullness of flavour.

NOSE Sweet fruit and Oloroso sherry notes, layered with honey and vanilla. TASTE Smooth and mellow with beautifully combined flavours ~ nutty sweetness, cinnamon spiciness and a delicately proportioned layer of sherry. FINISH Long and Warming.

Ultimate Beverage ChallengeThe first nosing passes discover scents of walnuts, grass and dark toffee; aromas of black tea and tobacco come to the forefront. Entry is delightfully grainy, malty and vanilla bean-bittersweet; the midpalate is silky, creamy, Sherry-sweet, pruny, black raisin-like and delicious. Ends on a medium-sweet dark chocolate note. A terrific 12 Year Old.
