The Balvenie Double Wood 12 year Whisky
|Category||Whisky, Scotch, Malt|
The Balvenie DoubleWood is a 12 year old single malt which gains its distinctive character from being matured in two wood types. Over the period of maturation it is transferred from a traditional oak whisky cask to a first fill European oak sherry cask. Each stage lends different qualities to the resulting single malt ~ the traditional casks soften and add character, whilst the sherry wood brings depth and fullness of flavour.
Region: Speyside, Scotland
Nose: Sweet fruit and Oloroso sherry notes, layered with honey and vanilla.
Palate: Smooth and mellow with beautifully combined flavours ~ nutty sweetness, cinnamon spiciness and a delicately proportioned layer of sherry.
Finish: Long and Warming
Located in Dufftown on Speyside, in Scotland, the distillery is well worth a visit. We’d love to see you to share a unique malt whisky experience and a few drams with you at The Balvenie.
