BALVENIE 12 Years Old DoubleWood 70cl
The Balvenie 12 Years Old DoubleWood has an iconic bottling which was inspired by a whisky produced in the mid 80's by The Balvenie's Malt Master, David Stewart. Matured in old sherry and bourbon casks, the Balvenie 12 Years Old DoubleWood is an interesting mild scotch that boasts an orange flavour and deep sweetness.
Gaining its distinctive character from being matured in two wood types, the Balvenie 12 Years Old DoubleWood is a true gem among malt whiskies. Each maturation stage lends different qualities to the single malt whisky. The Oloroso sherry casks bring out both depth and fullness of flavour to the scotch, while the traditional casks soften and add character to the Balvenie 12 Years Old DoubleWood.
On the palate, this 12 year old single malt scotch is a rich and complex dram that is an excellent example of what the Balvenie distillery can craft. It marries a beautiful combination of flavours ranging from nutty sweetness, cinnamon spiciness, and a delicate layer of sherry.
