Balvenie Double Wood 12Y 70CL


Balvenie Double Wood 12Y 70CL this 12 Year Old single malt Scotch whisky gains its distinctive character from being matured in two woods. Overs its period of maturation The Balvenie Doublewood is transferred from a traditional American oak whisky cask to a Spanish oak cask which has previously held sherry. Each stage lends different qualities to the resulting single malt – the traditional casks, having previously held bourbon, soften and add character, whilst the sherry wood brings depth and fullness of flavour.
