Balvenie 12YO Doublewood
40% - , 70cl
Brandied cherries, creamy vanilla and cinnamon rolls.
Still big on the creamy vanilla notes, balanced by cassia, black pepper and ginger. Touches of lemon and lime appear later on.
Just a hint of beeswax lingers.
This is the first bottling in Glen Grant’s Rothes Chronicles series, named after its home town in Speyside and released for the Travel Retail market. Cask Haven is a full-bodied single malt drawn from a selection of first-fill bourbon and sherry casks. A great balance of vanilla and spicy sherried fruit notes to be had here.
