Staff Pick Notes

The Balvenie Double Wood gains its distinctive character from being matured in two different wood types. Each stage lends different qualities to this great single malt. First, it spends 12 years in American ex Bourbon cask and then an additional 9 months in former Oloroso sherry cask. The American oak adds soft notes to the whisky.
