Description

To craft The Balvenie DoubleWood 17 Year, malt master David C. Stewart 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 plus a depth and fullness of flavor. The DoubleWood 17 Year is an elder sibling to DoubleWood 12 Year and shares its honeyed, spicy characteristics, but it is distinctly different, with deeper vanilla notes, hints of green apple, creamy toffee and a striking richness and complexity.
