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.

Tasting Notes:

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

95 Points, Gold - Intl Wine & Spirits Competition 2022

"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."

94 Points & Top 100 Spirits - Wine 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."

"Floral on the nose, with honey, oak, and almonds. Spicy sherry, nutmeg, and dried fruit on the silky palate. Quite long in the finish, with a hint of orange, plus drying spices. Elegant, yet robust." - Whisky Advocate
