One of the classic after-dinner malts, Balvenie Doublewood's extra complexity and richness are a result of a second maturation in fresh sherry casks. Great stuff.

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Notes

    Nose: Sweet fruit and oloroso sherry notes, layered with honey and vanilla.

    Palate: Smooth and mellow with beautifully combined flavours – nutty sweetness, cinnamon spiciness and a delicately proportioned layer of sherry.

    Finish: Long and warming.

    Bourbon like in flavour and very smooth and fruity on the nose. Not too harsh or peaty/earthy as some single malts can be. The Oak Sherry cask gives it a rounded, balanced taste with sweet and fruity notes. Great on its own, with a dash of ice or water, or a glug of cola on the rocks. One of my favourite singles.

    Wow! Finally a dram to compare with the Macallan 12 year old Sherry Oak, but at half the price. Needs a drop of water to take the edge off, but quite, quite delicious.

    Nose is wonderful, but on the palate I found it to be harsh and very bourban like. Much better options for this price and for cheaper.

    Excellent! Tasty, fruity and have enough complexity to give you a good drink. It isn''t ultimate in any level, but what a balance. Still looking for the best, but this is pretty close.

    Before I tried this I would have said I didn't like whiskey, and would certainly never have bought any. This whiskey made me realise that I was missing something, and I will forever hold it in high regard!
