Balvenie 17yr Doublewood Scotch
To craft DoubleWood 17yr Old, David Stewart, who celebrates his 50th year at The Balvenie in 2012, returned to one of his most celebrated achievements consecutive maturation in two different types of cask, a process often referred to as cask finishing. This technique is at the heart of The Balvenie DoubleWood it sees the whisky matured first in American oak barrels, which impart soft sweet vanilla notes, before being transferred to European oak sherry casks, where the second cask aging adds rich spicy flavors, depth and fullness of flavor. An elder sibling to the popular DoubleWood 12yr Old, this new aged version shares the same DNA and the honeyed, spicy characteristics as the 12yr Old, but it is distinctly different, with deeper vanilla notes, hints of green apple, creamy toffee and a striking richness and complexity.
