750ml
bottle
The Balanvie, located in Speyside, Scotland, is a distillery of tru tradition. They still grow their own barley and use with a traditional malting floor, the last of its kind in the Scottish Highlands. The distillery's resident coppersmith maintains the stills and the team of coopers ensure each barrel is in perfect condition. Of course, the Malt Master, David Stewart presides over the all-important maturation process, working to find ways to improve each and every drop. Aged in refill American oak casks before being finished in first fill European oak Sherry casks, DoubleWood is an excellent example of what the Balvenie distillery can craft. Even at 12 years the character and depth of this dram is something to behold.

About the brand
Founded in 1889 and since its inception, offering a truly unique and definite sweet, honeyed flavour, Balvenie whisky has long since secured its place in the hall of Scottish whisky fame. Indeed, Balvenie is one of the most famous names in the world of whisky. Its distillery is capable of producing over 5.5 million litres of spirit a year - amazing considering the fact that every element of production takes place on site. Balvenie grows its barley on land adjacent to the distillery buildings, has an active malting floor and makes casks in its very own cooperage. Balvenie came into existence thanks to William Grant, a Scotsman who founded the distillery in 1889. Grant was inspired to build a new distillery in order to help his other distillery at Glenfiddich to meet customer demand. Glenfiddich had opened half a decade earlier and its whisky was proving very popular, so he decided to renovate the nearby estate of Balvenie House. Much to Grant’s delight, his new distillery was an instant success. At this stage, much of the whisky produced at Balvenie House was used within the highly popular Grant & Sons range of blended whiskies and it continued as such for almost a century. It wasn’t until the 1970s that single malt releases became common. And this was when Balvenie really came into its own. Balvenie gained fast popularity with its sweet, creamy and rich character. Indeed, the demand for their single malt led Grant & Sons to build another distillery next door with Kininvie beginning production in 1990. Today, both Balvenie and Glenfiddich concentrate on meeting consumer demand for their single malts, with only a small percentage now going to Grant's blends. Balenvie remains under the ownership of the Grant family, making William Grant & Sons one of the longest single family distilleries in the world. All Balvenie whiskies are deliciously sweet with honey and vanilla notes. Their marriage of fruity flavours with the honey and vanilla makes them typical Speyside expressions. With a large core range, the sweet tones are often complemented with oak and deeper flavours such as leather and cigars. As you can imagine, the Balvenie award cabinet is heavy with marks of acclaim. To cover just a single year – in 2006, Balvenie took home the following gold medals from the International Spirits Challenge: Founder’s Reserve 10 Year Old, Double Wood 12 Year Old, Balvenie New Wood 17 Year Old, Port Wood 21 Year Old, Balvenie Thirty and Balvenie Port Wood 1991. This is the biggest gold medal haul for any brand in any one year since the competition was launched.

Tasting Notes
Nose
Gristy, supple nuttiness intertwined with spices. Honeyed sultanas and grapes. Hugely inviting.
Taste
Sweet with good body. The bourbon characters develop; gentle spice with a little vanilla, a hint of balancing peat lurking quietly in the substrata. Dried fruit too, combining with nuts, nutmeg, cinnamon, back into the bourbon notes - so well integrated.
Finish
Spicy, slightly drying, still sweet.
