Description

The Balvenie Doublewood acquires its complex yet rich and smooth taste from its maturation in two different types of oak cask.

WHISKY OAK

Many years of maturation in TRADITIONAL whisky casks mellows the maturing spirit and IMPARTS WARMING LAYERS of vanilla spiciness.

SHERRY OAK

FURTHER maturation in European oak SHERRY casks increases complexity, bringing fruity, honeyed DEPTHS to the resulting SINGLE MALT.

The traditional crafts of Malt Whisky making still flourish at the Balvenie Distillery.

The Balvenie Distillery has been owned and managed by the same independent family company for FIVE GENERATIONS. 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.

The fifth rare craft is that of Malt Master, David Stewart. Over fifty years of experience enables him to SKILFULLY use different types of cask and different ages of spirit to craft The Balvenie range of single malts. Each expression has a distinctive taste, but all share a rich, honeyed character.
