Whisky Discovery #18

The Balvenie 12 Year Old Double Wood (40% abv, OB, Bottled +/- 2011 70cl)
Speyside Single Malt Whisky
Circa £25

August's official bottle
With Balvenie being fresh on my mind, and also on my wish list I thought I ought to buy this entry level malt for the collection. 

The Double Wood is their entry level malt, and a delicate Speyside which is first aged in oak and then in sherry wood. With soft notes layered with honey and vanilla for a subtle sweetness. 

Taste it and you’ll notice it’s nuttiness, sherry and even cinnamon.

A smashing dram !
