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. On the nose Sweet fruit and Oloroso sherry notes, layered with honey and vanilla. Taste is smooth and mellow with beautifully combined flavours nutty sweetness, cinnamon spiciness and a delicately proportioned layer of sherry. Finish long and warming .

"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."
