About the Producer:

The Balvenie DoubleWood is a 12 year old single malt 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. Each 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.

"A complex nose shows layers of vanilla cake, honeycomb, fresh leather, and a whiff of baking spice. The palate is indulgent mingling the above flavors in a rich and luxurious package that lingers to a pleasantly warming finish."

94 Points & Top 100 Spirits - Wine & Spirits Enthusiast
"Silky 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."

"Elegant, yet robust." - Whisky Advocate
