Another fantastic invention from the workbench of Balvenie Malt Master David Stewart – a 17-year-old version of the bestselling DoubleWood. Still initially matured in 'whisky oak' casks before being switched to sherry wood to finish, the extra years give it extra depth without being overpowering.
Polished wood, cake spice, Danish pastries, dessicated coconut, vanilla cream, Cadbury’s Fruit and Nut bars, and a little bit of tropical fruit at the back – mango, maybe?.
Oily mouthfeel, soft sweet caramel, lightly spiced wood, good apple pie (stewed apples, lightly sweetened pastry and a few raisins thrown in for good measure), a cinnamon tingle and a hint of Mars Milk.
Sweet and fruity with a touch of fruit polish. Lingering rich caramel turns slowly to good old wood.
