Peated Cask 17 YO

To craft Double Wood 17 Year Old Malt Master David Stewart, who celebrated his 50th year at The Balvenie in 2012, returned to one of his most celebrated achievements – consecutive maturation in two dierent types of cask, a process often referred to as ‘cask finishing’. This technique is at the heart of The Balvenie Double Wood – it sees the whisky matured first in American oak barrels, which impart soft sweet vanilla notes, before being transferred to European oak sherry casks where the second cask ageing adds rich spicy flavours and a depth and fullness of flavor. The Double Wood 17 Year Old is an elder sibling to Double Wood 12 Year Old and shares its honeyed, spicy characteristics, but it is distinctly different, with deeper vanilla notes, hints of green apple, creamy toee and a striking richness and complexity.
