The Balvenie DoubleWood 12 Year Old whisky is a true testament to the art of cask maturation and the dedication to exceptional craftsmanship. This expression exemplifies The Balvenie’s commitment to creating whiskies of unparalleled depth and complexity.
The journey begins with the whisky’s initial maturation in traditional oak casks, which imparts classic vanilla and honey notes alongside the signature Balvenie smoothness. But it doesn’t stop there. The whisky is then transferred to carefully selected sherry casks, where it undergoes a second maturation process.
This unique double wood maturation technique adds layers of richness and depth to the whisky’s flavor profile. The sherry casks infuse the spirit with luscious dried fruits, warm spices, and a subtle nuttiness, creating a harmonious marriage of flavors that dance on the palate.
