The Balvenie 12 Years Double Wood is a single malt scotch whisky. The Double Wood has been aged in two distinct types of oak casks. First, it is matured in traditional American oak barrels, which brings flavours of vanilla and spice. Then, it is transferred to European oak sherry casks, which add notes of dried fruit and nuttiness. The resulting whisky is complex and well-balanced, with a rich and smooth palate. It has a warm amber color and a nose of honey, vanilla, and oak.
