Balvenie 17 year old Double Wood
The Balvenie 17 year old is older brother of their flagship 12 year old bottling. Matured for many years first in the more common ex American casks before being transferred to Spannish European oak Sherry casks for its secondary maturation. David Stewart is widely regarded as the pioneer of this technique and it is showcased perfectly here in his exquisite 17 year old Single Malt.
Creamy toasted marshmellows and sweet vanilla on the nose. The palate holds that honey sweetness, so characteristic of Balvenie. This is met with warming spices and stewed fruits, a real winter malt whisky.
