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.
NOSE: Sweet fruit and Oloroso sherry notes, layered with honey and vanilla.
TASTE: Smooth and mellow with beautifully combined flavors ~ nutty sweetness, cinnamon spiciness and a delicately proportioned layer of sherry.
FINISH: Long and Warming

"Red toffee apples, fresh barley and the appealing richness of treacle tart with clotted cream. Luscious and toffee forward with a consistent mouthfeel and beautiful, gristy balance. Big and bold with hints of cask and a long, apple-rich finish."

"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."
