The Balvenie DoubleWood 12 Year Old

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

TASTING NOTES

TASTE
Smooth and mellow with beautifully combined flavours – nutty sweetness, cinnamon spiciness and a delicately proportioned layer of sherry

The Balvenie Caribbean Cask 14 Year Old

The Balvenie Caribbean Cask was created by The Balvenie Malt Master, David Stewart, who celebrated an incredible 50th anniversary at the distillery in 2012. This single malt has had a 14-year maturation period in traditional oak whisky casks, before being transferred to casks that previously held Caribbean rum to finish aging.

 

Commenting on The Balvenie Caribbean Cask, David Stewart said: “We’ve found that many years maturation in traditional oak whisky casks followed by a few months of rum cask maturation complements The Balvenie single malt very well. This expression is a beautifully rounded whisky that combines traditional Balvenie vanilla notes with rich toffee, a hint of fruit and a warm, lingering finish.”

TASTING NOTES

 

NOSE
Rich, sweet and creamy toffee on the nose combined with fresh fruit notes

 

TASTE
Rounded with vanilla and sweet oak notes, with a fruity character that develops with time

 

FINISH
Soft and lingering

The Balvenie DoubleWood 17 Year Old

The Balvenie DoubleWood 17 Year Old is created with a consecutive maturation process using two different types of casks, a technique that David Stewart was one of the first to use. The first and longest stage of the maturation process takes place in an American oak whisky cask. The second and shorter stage takes place at the end of maturation when the whisky is transferred into a European oak sherry cask for a period of some months.

TASTING NOTES

 

NOSE
An elegant nose, complex with oak, vanilla, honeyed sweetness and a hint of green apple

 

TASTE
Sweet with dried fruits, sherbet spice, toasted almonds and cinnamon, layered with a richness of creamy toffee note, traces of oak and vanilla

 

FINISH
Long and warming
