Balvenie Scotch Single Malt DoubleWood Aged 12yrs 700ML
This 12-year-old Speyside malt is aged in American oak ex-bourbon casks before being transferred to European oak oloroso sherry casks for a 9-month finishing period, thus the apt ‘Double Wood’ name. This was 1st ever second wood finished malt, leading the trail for the many that have followed. This whisky expression was launched in 1993, and has become an iconic bottling over the years. Even at 12 years old, this rich and complex dram is an excellent example of what the Balvenie distillery can craft. A pioneer in the Double Wood method, Balvenie is waiting for you and it’s yours for the taking.
