The Balvenie Doublewood 12 Y.O.
Why it’s different
Balvenie Doublewood is the world's first experimentation with double ageing, first in ex-bourbon casks and finally in sherry casks. It is a sweet, smooth and enveloping whisky: a 12-year-old with character and great drinkability.
How do I drink it?
To be enjoyed neat, classically with small pastries or ripe fruit.
The Balvenie was founded by William Grant in 1892 in the abandoned premises of the then derelict 'Balvenie new house'. Production began on 1 May 1983, with a pure malt whisky, purely dedicated to blended Grant's. In 1923 the distillery was passed from William to his son John Grant and it was thanks to him that The Balvenie was able to expand structurally and reach the levels of quality that still make it unique today.
