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.

Nosing: Honey Fruit Oak

Taste: Sherry Oak Vanilla Nuts Spices Fruit Dark Chocolate

Finish: Long

Comment: A delicious smooth drop. Reminiscent of a sweet vanilla sponge cake topped with caramelised fruit and dusted with light spices. A definite woody undertone with a minor nutty undertone and a slight dark chocolate taste at the back. A must for any collection.
