The Balvenie Whisky, Single Malt Scotch
Doublewood: Matured in two distinct casks. Aged 12 years. The Balvenie Doublewood acquires its complex yet rich and smooth taste from its maturation in two different types of oak cask. - David C. Stewart, The Balvenie Malt Master. Estd. 1892. The Balvenie Distillery has been owned by the same independent family company for five generations. Nowhere else will you find a distillery that still grows its own barley, that still malts in its own traditional floor maltings, that still has coopers to tend the casks and a coppersmith to tend the stills. From this distillery comes The Balvenie Doublewood aged 12 years characterised by rich honey sweetness and a delicate layer of sherry. www.thebalvenie.com. First Cask: Many years o maturation exclusively in traditional whisky oak casks mellows the maturing spirit and imparts gentle, warming layers of vanilla spiciness. Second Cask: Further maturation in European oak sherry casks increases complexity, bringing fruity, honeyed depths to the resulting single malt. 43% alc./vol. Distilled at The Balvenie Distillery, Banffshire Scotland.
