Each stage lends different qualities to the resulting single malt - the traditional casks, having previously held bourbon, soften and add character, whilst the sherry wood brings depth and fullness of flavour.
The Balvenie Double Wood is a 12 year old single malt which gains its distinctive character from being matured in two woods.

This is the first whisky I can definitely smell and taste properly and it's marvelous.Sherry casks are produced from European Oak and are often used in the scotch industry.Depending on the duration of maturation, these casks impart a sweet and fruity flavor to the spirit aged within.If you ask me which one to buy, then I must say get the Johnnie Walker Black for $38 CAD, or just throw in a few dollars more and go higher e.g.Nikka from the Barrel, Lagavulin 16, or Balvenie 14 Caribbean Cask of the same brand, or even Glenfarclas 15. 27th January 2017 Newcomer to single malt whisky and this is my favourite so far.

Nose: Gristy, supple nuttiness intertwined with spices. This is a very pleasing flavor balance in keeping with my personal blended scotch favorites. 22nd March 2017 In addition to the above, I detect a little apricot in the nose as well. l agree with the above stated finish, it's definitely sweet and in fact I get a soft malted toffee - plenty of toffee in the finish, its just superb. 16th March 2017 The first time I tried this it was my first dive into whiskies of this region and ended up enjoying a few too many glasses with my dad alongside his Laphroaig. I grabbed a bottle for myself and would advise putting this in the freezer and then pouring yourself a nice good sized glass. Dried fruit too, combining with nuts, nutmeg, cinnamon, back into the bourbon notes - so well integrated. Whatever happens though, we’ll never share your contact details unless you specifically tell us we can. Other single malts I've tried were lacking in depth/breadth of flavor profile. It's immediate love for me and easily upon my list of re-purchasables. A very welcomed member to my family off whisky favorites :) Thank you Balvenie!Air Miles for online purchases will be awarded on the date of shipment and not the date of order.The above-noted alcohol content may differ from the alcohol content displayed on the bottle label due to the timing of changes in vintage dates or production lot codes.
