Balvenie is the sister distillery of Glenfiddich. It has a similarly sky-high production standard to its sister but is produced on a much smaller scale. Its older expressions are a match for any whisky on the planet. the Doublewood is a 12 year old whisky with a sherry finish; the whisky spends the final few months in sherry casks prior to bottling.
The Whisky Tasting Club Notes:
Nose: Much lighter than expected. Oranges. Spicy and lightly charred Dundee cake.
Palate: Light sherry, with lighter vanillas soon becoming apparent, as is a light nuttiness and the juicy Seville oranges which becomes slightly bitter at the end.
Retails for around £35
