BALVENIE 17 Years Old DoubleWood 70cl
Matured in American oak barrels and European oak sherry casks, the Balvenie 17-year-old Double Wood is known for the depth and fullness of flavour. This 17-year old Double Wood boasts a sweet taste with hints of dried fruit, toasted almonds, cinnamon, as well as traces of oak and deep vanilla.
Crafted by Malt Master David C. Stewart, the Balvenie DoubleWood 17 year old single malt whisky undergoes the consecutive maturation in two different types of cask, a process often referred to as ‘cask finishing’. This technique stems at the heart of the Balvenie DoubleWood, as its maturation in American oak barrels helps impart its soft sweet vanilla notes while its ageing in European oak sherry casks adds to its rich spicy flavours, its depth, and fullness of flavour.
The Balvenie 17-year-old Double Wood also shares similar characteristics to the DoubleWood 12-year-old, with both having honeyed and spicy flavours. Distinctively, the Balvenie 17-year-old Double Wood has deeper vanilla notes, hints of green apple, creamy toffee and a striking richness and complexity.
