The Balvenie DoubleWood is a 12-year-old single malt that 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 flavor.
NOSE: Sweet fruit and Oloroso sherry notes, layered with honey and vanilla. TASTE : Smooth and mellow with beautifully combined flavors ~ nutty sweetness, cinnamon spiciness, and a delicately proportioned layer of sherry. FINISH: Long and Warming.
