The Balvenie DoubleWood 17 year old Speyside single malt was crafted by the Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE by returning to one of his most celebrated achievements – consecutive maturation in two different types of cask, a process often referred to as ‘cask finishing’.
This technique is at the heart of The Balvenie DoubleWood. The whisky is first matured in American oak barrels, which impart soft sweet vanilla notes. It is then transferred to European oak sherry casks, where the second cask ageing adds rich spicy flavours and a depth and fullness of flavour.
