Smooth and mellow…
Balvenie 12yo Double Wood
This massive Grants owned distillery is a real favourite amongst Aussie malt aficionados. And somewhat surprisingly, this 12yo double wood, bourbon and sherry oak, it represents Balvenie’s entry level malt.
What a way to start your Balvenie journey! The style has been described as medium bodied, honeyed, dried fruitiness, sweet and balanced.
From ScotchNoob, “this Scotch stands on its own as a beautiful example of what quality Speyside whisky and careful oak aging can do, and with a fantastic price point. This gives oak-lovers a two-dimensional whisky with some unexpected twists, all on a pristine base of one of the best malts in Speyside”.
Official notes read, “Smooth and mellow with beautifully combined flavours ~ nutty sweetness, cinnamon spiciness and a delicately proportioned layer of sherry. Long and Warming”.
