The Balvenie

Doublewood 12 Anniversary Edition

Aged 12 Years

2018 marks the 25th anniversary of The Balvenie DoubleWood, aged 12 years.

This milestone is not only a testament to the craftsmen who have dedicated their working lives to making Balvenie the handcrafted way but to the skill of our Malt Master who throughout his 55 year career has changed the face of Scotch, work which earned him an MBE in 2016.  

DoubleWood 12 was launched in 1993, using a process designed by our Malt Master David Stewart in 1982, now commonly known as 'wood finishing'.    

To make The Balvenie DoubleWood, David Stewart MBE takes whisky that has spent at least 12 years in traditional whisky casks, American Oak ex-bourbon barrels and hogsheads, and moves it to Spanish oak ex-Oloroso sherry casks for an additional nine months. 

The whisky is then transferred to large oak vessels called “tuns” for 3-4 months to allow the whiskies from individual casks to “marry”.  

The Balvenie DoubleWood single malt whisky gains its distinctive character from being matured in two different wood types. Each stage lends different qualities to the resulting single malt whisky.  

The traditional casks soften and add delicate character, the sherry wood brings depth and fullness of flavour and the final few months in our tuns allow the whiskies to marry harmoniously.

2018 marks the 25th anniversary of The Balvenie DoubleWood, and so to celebrate we are looking back at its journey. 

Tasting Notes

Nose Sweet fruit and Oloroso sherry notes, layered with honey and vanilla.

Taste Smooth and mellow with beautifully combined flavours ~ nutty sweetness, cinnamon spiciness and a delicately proportioned layer of sherry.

Finish Long and Warming
