Balvenie 12YO Doublewood
40% - , 70cl
A surround aroma, with notes of ripe pear, white flowers and sweet spices, with a soft smoky background.
It is very aromatic and imposing structure of flavors, with hints of dried fruits, heather honey and a vibrant bitterness, which gives a long round and full finish.
Long, with raisins and spice.
Balanced, rich and elegant, this is a whisky for special occasions.
Over the course of 18 years our Master Distiller, Alan Winchester, takes this expression through a combination of cask types, including both first and second-fill American oak (for tropical fruitiness) and ex-sherry oak (for spicy complexity). The result of this deft navigation of the distilling arts is a gorgeous single malt that is complex, yet elegant and balanced. The 18 Year Old has won more awards than any other expression; every bottle is a true example of the quality and taste of The Glenlivet. Any bottle deserves pride of place in your cabinet perhaps to be held back for a fitting occasion? It is, after all, crafted to impress.
