The Balvenie DoubleWood is a 12 year old single malt which gains its distinctive character from being matured in two wood types. Matured for many years in traditional Whisky casks before being finished in sherry casks, this 12 year old single malt from Balvenie is rich and smooth.
It’s characterised by rich honey sweetness and a delicate layer of Sherry that lingers on the palate.
The finish is long and warming.
Balvenie DoubleWood is, to not much surprise, aged in two kinds of oak casks! It was firstly matured in refill American oak casks before it was treated to a finish in first fill European oak Oloroso sherry butts for an additional nine months. The expression was launched in 1993, and has become a somewhat iconic bottling over the years. Even at 12 years old, this rich and complex dram is an excellent example of what the Balvenie distillery can craft.
