Balvenie Doublewood 17 Year Old Single Malt Whisky
70cl, 43% abv
Balvenie Doublewood 17 Year Old Single Malt Whisky was matured in two different types of cask, a process often referred to as cask finishing. This technique is at the heart of The Balvenie DoubleWood. It sees the whisky matured first in American oak barrels, which impart soft sweet vanilla notes, before being transferred to European oak Sherry casks, where the second cask ageing adds rich spicy flavours and a depth and fullness of flavour.
Colour: Rich mahogany.
Nose: Elegant and complex oak, vanilla, honeyed sweetness and a hint of green apple.
Palate: Sweet with dried fruits, sugared spice, toasted almonds and cinnamon. Layered with rich, creamy toffee notes and traces of oak and bold vanilla.
Finish: Vanilla oak, honey and spicy sweetness.
