Product Description

  • DoubleWood Aged 12 Years Single Malt Scotch Whisky
  • To produce The Balvenie DoubleWood 12 Year Old, David Stewart MBE takes whisky that has spent at least 12 years in traditional whisky casks, American oak ex-bourbon barrels and hogsheads to mellow the maturing spirit and Impart warming layers of vanilla spiciness. He then moves it to Spanish oak ex-Oloroso sherry casks for an additional nine months to increase complexity, bringing fruity, honeyed depths to the resulting Single Malt. The whisky is then transferred to large oak vessels called “tuns” for 3-4 months to allow the whiskies to “marry”. This is an excellent introduction to a matured whisky for your collection and would also make a welcome gift for a loved one.
  • Balvenie is one of the world's most loved Single Malt Scotch Whiskies. The multi-award winning Balvenie Distillery in Banffshire is famous for being the only one left in Scotland to retain the traditional crafts of whisky production. Nowhere else will you find a distillery that still grows its own barley, still malts in its own traditional floor maltings and still employs a team of coopers to tend all the casks and a coppersmith to maintain the stills. Meanwhile our maltmen turn the barley up to four times a day, seven days a week. The Distillery has been owned and managed by the same independent family company for five generations.

Really enjoyable and easy to drink being a little sweet and justca tadge spicey, perfect to indulge in to relax after a days graft. I prefer it after sitting it a couple of hours in the freezer then straight from a chilled glass. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

One to cherish

5 stars

Review from

For me this 12 year old scotch is one of the finest single malt whiskys, the sherry barrel finish creates a taste of smooth yet complex notes, with hints of oak and vanilla. This whisky is definitely one to cherish. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Beautifully Sweet and Very Smooth

5 stars

Review from

This Balvenie 12 year old is a brilliant Whisky for those that need something smooth. It is sweet on the nose and palate with notes of Honey and Cinnamon. You can taste a layer of sherry on the second sip from the Sherry casks the 2nd ageing takes place in. It has s very pleasant lengthy, warming presence.

Fantastic taste

4 stars

Review from

Such a lovely drink. This single malt is a very easy sipper, and it does go down easy. Very light on smoke, this one is more of a fruity and sweet experience, with just enough feel to keep it interesting. I dont always reach for this bottle, but it's a wonderful experience when I do.
