Balvenie 12 Year Old Doublewood 12 year old
The Balvenie DoubleWood is a 12 year old single malt whisky which gains its distinctive character from being matured in two wood types. Over the period of maturation it is transferred from a traditional oak whisky cask to a first fill European oak sherry cask. Sweet fruit and Oloroso sherry notes, layered with honey and vanilla.

Wine EnthusiastSilky and downright succulent, this Scotch is made with two types of oak casks-as the DoubleWood name suggests-but it's really all about the influence of the ex-Sherry cask. Aromas suggest golden raisins and dried apricots. The silky palate starts out moderately smoky, but glides into a richer, honeyed, nutty profile that finishes with cocoa and clove accents.
