Balvenie Doublewood Single Malt gains its distinctive character from being matured in barrels of two distinct oaks. During its period of maturation, Balvenie is transferred from a traditional Whisky cask to a first fill Spanish Sherry cask. Each stage lends different qualities to the finished Malt. The pre seasoned barrels soften the Whisky and impart wonderful complexities, the aged Sherry characters build depth of flavour and infuse marvellous richness. A smooth and mellow Malt of sublime nutty sweetness, cinnamon spice and a delicately proportioned layer of Sherry rancio, all before a long, warming finish.
