Description

Balvenie Doublewood is one of the classic after-dinner malts. This12 years old single malt gains its distinctive character from being matured in two woods and it’s extra complexity and richness are a result of the traditional oak whisky cask and then a second maturation in fresh sherry casks. This is a must try and for most will or already is a goto/ no-brainer when buying whisky.¬†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 flavor.
