"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." 94 Points, Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Spirits of 2015

Balvenie Description

The Balvenie DoubleWood is a 12 year old single malt which gains its distinctive character from being matured in two woods. Over its 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.

Wine Enthusiast: 90-95 Points

TFirst nosing exposes dry scents of walnuts, grass and dark toffee. Entry is malty and vanilla-extract bittersweet; midpalate is silky, creamy, Sherry sweet, pruny and black raisin-like. Ends on a dark chocolate note that's chewy, medium-sweet and satisfying.
