Balvenie 12 Years Double Wood

This Balvenie was matured in old sherry and bourbon casks. It makes this scotch interesting but also mild. The orange flavour and a deep sweetness make it a true gem among malt whiskies.

Comment:
This one has a little bit dry taste than expected for me. This drum has a typical character that changes its palate with original oak taste into the orange taste over time. I have to admit Balvenie 12 is very rich whisky compared with other 12 yo.
