TASTING NOTES: Colour: A deep amber, almost mahogany colour Aroma: A rich aroma of delectable chocolate and cakey desserts complemented by notes of ripe raspberry and cherry Taste: Mini Balvenie Doublewood 12 Year Old has a full and balanced flavour abundant with red fruit flavours, particularly raspberry and cherry, underscored by a sponge cake sweetness and a dash of cinnamon spice. The finish is long, warm, and spicy with lingering touches of vanilla. PRODUCER: Balvenie Distillery first opened its doors in May 1893 in Dufftown, Scotland, and has continued to produce exceptional malt whiskeys ever since. The distillery's long traditional history carries over into its practice of operating its own malting floor and malt kin, one of only six distilleries in Scotland that does so. However, the small distillery is only able to produce 10-15% of its malt needs, and sources the rest from other reputable malt suppliers. Preference is given to barley grown locally. COUNTRY: Scotland PRODUCTION DETAILS: Mini Balvenie Doublewood 12 Year Old is a single malt whiskey matured for 12 years. The whiskey gets its name from the fact that it is matured in two different wood types, each imparting a unique quality to the final whiskey. The whisky is aged in a traditional oak wood cask first, which softens it and gives it character. Then the whiskey is transferred to a new European oak sherry cask which adds deepened flavour.

4 /5

- The Balvenie Doublewood Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a 12 year old single malt which gains its distinctive character from being matured in two woods.
- During its period of maturation The Balvenie Doublewood is transferred from a traditional oak whisky cask to a first fill Spanish oak sherry cask. Each stage lends different qualities to the resulting single malt - the traditional casks, having previously held bourbon, soften and add character, whilst the sherry wood brings depth and fullness of flavour.
- The nose is Sweet fruit and oloroso sherry notes, layered with honey and vanilla.
- The taste is a smooth and mellow single malt of beautifully combined flavours - nutty sweetness, cinnamon spiciness and a delicately proportioned layer of sherry - with a long and warming finish.
