Balvenie DoubleWood Single Malt Scotch Whisky 12 year old
|Single Malt Scotch
|United Kingdom, Scotland, Speyside
Silky and downright succulent, this Scotch is made with two types of oak casks-as the DoubleWood name suggests-but it's really all about the influence of the ex-Sherry cask. Aromas suggest golden raisins and dried apricots. The silky palate starts out moderately smoky, but glides into a richer, honeyed, nutty profile that finishes with cocoa and clove accents.
