Balvenie 12 year old Double Wood 5cl
One of Scotland’s favourite malt whiskies and one of the most loved in the industry. Despite claims by another renowned distillery, it was David Stewart at Balvenie who pioneered double maturation with the Balvenie Double Wood and it is still going strong today. Matured first in ex American casks and then finished in Spanish sherry casks. This is a miniature 5cl bottle.
Vanilla custard with honey and bananas, so characteristic of Balvenie, and instantly apparent in the 12-year-old. The American oak casks bring soft vanilla and butterscotch notes which are nicely offset by the spices and warmer dried fruits coming in from the sherry casks.
