Balvenie 17yo DoubleWood Bottling Note

Like the famous 12 year old expression this Balvenie has been matured in two types of cask, the key difference this has been given an extra five years of cask ageing. A great release for 2012.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Warm Acacia honey and green apples on the nose leading to warm winter spices, vanilla and honeysuckle on the palate. The finish is gloriously long with notes of vanilla and honey.

Balvenie DoubleWood 17 Year Old Reviews

A great, smooth dram.

After a cold bike ride I needed some warmth.
Turn the thermostat up or try one of the miniatures sitting in the cupboard. Opted for this and wow, what a lovely dram. Warm, easy to sip, no harshness, just smooth whisky nectar. It’s been a long time since I had Balvenie but it won’t be so long until the next drop. On my birthday list.

Just not for me

I can see why people rate this. However it wasn't for me. I got the vanilla and strangely some chocolate orange. Unfortunatly I felt the oak was overpowering in the finish and had a burnt toast note to it. There is cheaper, better whisky out there!

Maybe its me and not this awful brew

Nose: The most tepid...lemon...yes lemon...nose...17 years old...really.

Palate: This is truly terrible. Like being face punched into your Grandfather's spitoon.

After: It might have died, but maybe it the palate that distracts.

Superb;sublime.

Great vintage;a drop of tap water brings it out.One for the lovers of the malt.
A sample is not enough to appreciate its quality.

Best on the table

My son-in-law does a scotch tasting every year with friends, with people bringing dozens of bottles of high end scotch. This was the winner.

I was strangely let down

Years ago I had a bottle of the basic 12-year old Balvenie Doublewood, and I thought it was superb. So I thought I'd plump for for something a little older. It was strangely disappointing, though I am working away at it like a man and I will learn to like it better. I'm getting a lot of burnt sugar flavours from it. It may be something best saved til winter. Oddly enough my wife picked up the vanilla finish just from the empty glass.
