Balvenie Scotch Double Wood Single Malt 17 Yr

Balvenie Scotch Double Wood Single Malt 17 Yr 750ML        
Sku: 13613

This particular bottle of scotch whisky spends 17 years in the barrel, which is about the middle of The Balvenie offerings. This Madiera cask adds wonderful fortified wine elements to the scotch, already tame and fruity in relation to some of the other scotch regions. The result is very pleasant, a whisky you can sip and enjoy without being overwhelmed by any singular aspect. The nose opens with a rich, semi-spicy oak with a sweet side marked by vanilla and a dash of honey and soft, baked apple. The taste begins with extremely smooth and sultry notes of oak and vanilla and develops into richer, spicier tones of dried fruits and cinnamon. The finish is medium to long and has a nice, deep oak that is dry and sweet at the same time.

Tasting notes
NOSE Elegant and complex oak, vanilla, honeyed sweetness and a hint of green apple. TASTE Sweet with dried fruits, sherbert spice, toasted almonds and cinnamon, layered with a richness of creamy toffee notes and traces of oak and deep vanilla. FINISH Vanilla oak, honey and spicy sweetness.

A limited edition bottling to commemorate the great David Stewart’s 50th year in the business and, as befits this quiet man, here’s a release that rewards just sitting and listening. This gives more of a nod to Cognac than Speyside; something to do with the dried apricot, orange blossom, and golden syrup. The palate is gentle and layered, with more dried fruits, which are balanced by an almost jammy finish where, finally, some cereal is glimpsed. (Spring 2013) Reviewed by: Dave Broom

Redolent of honey and fresh apple, this double wood (American oak and Sherry cask) whisky is rich and slightly viscous on the palate, showing a deep creme brağlee note laced with zesty lemon peel and ginger.

Country: Scotland
Region: Speyside
Type: Single Malt Scotch
