0.70 ltr. 40.00%

The Balvenie Double Wood 12 Year Old has clear influences from both bourbon and sherry wood. This malt has only 12 years aged in bourbon casks and then 3 months in young Oloroso casks. The peppery character from the bourbon barrels, penetrates, as it were by the rich and full aroma of Oloroso casks it. The Balvenie Double Wood is therefore a very complex malt.

Tasting Notes:

Color: golden yellow

Smell: deep character, orange, apricot, cinnamon

Taste: very complex, long finish marked by Oloroso sherry notes

Bearing 12 years in bourbon barrels and each barrel crossed an Oloroso sherryvat for a short bearing 6 months

Nose: Best part of the whisky. Sweet and fruity, with nice sherry influence. Notes of grapes and vanilla.

Taste: Smooth combination of nuts, cinnamon apples and delicate sherry.

Finish: Crispy with lingering warming spices and sherry oak. Strongly dry.

Balance: Full whisky. Smooth, pleasant and crispy.

Nose
Sweet honey, honey melon, sweet pears, vanilla, vanilla fudge, creme brûlée.

Taste
Honey all over again, with subtle spices, oak, some fresh and dried fruits. Melon and pears again, vanilla and maybe some overripe golden delicious apples? the sherry influences are definitely in the background when it comes to flavor.

Finish
Medium in length, quite sweet vanilla and honey and a hint of smoke in the finish with some black pepper. Not far from the Cragganmore 12 year old finish. This is a good entry level malt.

Comments
Loads of flavors in this one, a true speyside character malt.
