A 20cl bottle of Balvenie's popular 12 year old DoubleWood. The double maturation by finishing in first fill European oak sherry casks adds complexity. The first maturation softens and adds character, with the finishing in sherry casks adding depth and fullness of flavour.
Aged for 12 years - the extra 6 years maturing in wood produces a darker spirit with more of the traditional characteristics of aged whiskies and a richer, more aromatic flavour.

This Auchentoshan 12 yrs expression replaced the old 10 year-old a few years ago in 2008, when the range was totally revamped, and has been hailed as a big improvement on the occasionally lacklustre 10yo.
