Balvenie DoubleWood 12 Year Old Single Malt Whisky
70cl, 40% abv
Balvenie DoubleWood 12 Year Old Single Malt Whisky gains its distinctive character from being matured in two wood types. Over the 12 year maturation it is transferred from a traditional oak whisky cask to a first fill European oak sherry cask. Each maturation 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.
Nose: Sweet fruit and Oloroso Sherry notes, laced with honey and vanilla.
Palate: Smooth and nicely mellow with beautifully combined flavours; nutty sweetness, cinnamon spiciness and a soft layer of sherry.
Finish: Long and warming.
