Definitely try again at some point. While I can't recall specifics on the first time I tried Balvenie's Doublewood (meaning it did not leave an impression one way or another), I can tell you the second time I tried it several months later, it really caught my attention. Thumbs UP! Keep us posted on your follow up!
