“Lovely sherried whisky with a nice amount of nuts and biscuits in its nose. I have really enjoyed this one.”
During its period of maturation The Balvenie Doublewood is transferred from a traditional oak whisky cask to a first fill Spanish oak sherry cask.
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 flavor.
This is the most basic bottle from Balvenie and still awesome!
TODO: Check if strength is 40% or 0%
This dram has a amber-like color.
Nose (91): more than average. nuts, honey, citrus, toffee, biscuits. Smells like a fino sherried matured whisky. Very nice nose.
Palate (91): powerful, oily. honey, floral, citrus, nuts, wood, spices.
Finish (90): longer than average. honey, nuts, wood.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Balvenie 12 year Doublewood with 91 points over 100.
