The Balvenie 17 Year Old DoubleWood is the elder brother of the 12 Year Old. Having spent a longer time in both types of casks, the scotch has layers upon layers of depth, complexity and flavour. Honeyed sweetness of vanilla oak and spice. This is deeper on the palate and futher amplified flavours of nuts spice cake and cinnamon. The finish is long and luxurious. One to be savoured for sure.
