The Balvenie DoubleWood 17 Year Old is created with a consecutive maturation process using two different types of cask. The first and longest stage of maturation process takes place in an American oak whisky cask. The second and shorter stage takes place at the end of maturation when the whisky is transferred into a European oak sherry cask for period of some months. An elegant nose, complex with oak, vanilla, honeyed sweetness and a hint of green apple. Taste is sweet with dried fruits, toasted almonds and cinnamon. Finish is long and warming.
