Balvenie 12 Year Old Double Wood

Last unit sold for $87.00

Product description
Balvenie DoubleWood is aged in two kinds of oak casks! It was firstly matured in refill American oak casks before it was treated to a finish in first fill European oak Oloroso sherry butts for an additional nine months. The expression was launched in 1993, and has become a somewhat iconic whiskey over the years. Even at 12 years old, this rich and complex dram is an excellent example of what the Balvenie distillery can craft. 40% ABV.

Nose: Supple nuttiness intertwined with spices. Honeyed sultanas and grapes. Hugely inviting.

Palate: Sweet with good body. The bourbon characters develop. Gentle spice with a little vanilla, a hint of balancing peat lurking quietly in the substrata. Dried fruit, combining with nuts, nutmeg, cinnamon, back into the bourbon notes, so well integrated.

Finish: Spicy, slightly drying, still sweet.

Overall: A classic, always a pleasure to revisit. This is a single malt with the ability to convert a non-whisky drinker with its deliciousness.
