Balvenie DoubleWood Single Malt Scotch Whisky 12 year old
|Category||Single Malt Scotch|
|Region||United Kingdom, Scotland, Speyside|
The Balvenie DoubleWood is a 12 year old single malt whisky which gains it's 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. Tasting Notes: Sweet fruit and Oloroso sherry notes, layered with honey and vanilla on the nose. The taste is smooth and mellow with beautifully combined flavours ~ nutty sweetness, cinnamon spiciness and a delicately proportioned layer of sherry. Long and warming finish.
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.
