Insider knowledge: Balvenie 12 Year Old DoubleWood (Old Edition) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Balvenie 12 Year Old DoubleWood (Old Edition) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Gristy, supple nuttiness, grapey.
Palate: Sweet with good body. The bourbon characters develop; gentle spice with a little vanilla, a balancing peat lurking quietly in the substrata.
Finish: Dry, spicy, beautifully warming.
