Product Description

How do you make whisky the right way? Why, you make it yourself. Balvenie believes in mastering and controlling the Five Crafts of whisky: barley, malt, stills, barrels and the malt master. They handle every aspect of creating The Balvenie 12 year Doublewood, from the first seed to the final approval of Malt Master David C. Stewart, whose nose and palate have been sharpened at the distillery since 1962. The Balvenie presents the ultimate line of painstakingly crafted Scotch whiskies. The Double Wood ages 12 years in American Oak Bourbon barrels, then finishes in Spanish Oak Sherry casks. The final product carries the sweet fruit from the Sherry, charred notes from the Bourbon and the character of a meticulous crew of craftspeople. This Speyside whisky tastes fine after dinner or with a Maduro cigar. The nose carries dark chocolate, raspberries and fresh bread. The taste blends berries and cherries with pepper and exotic spices. The finish is long and viscous with lingering hints of red fruit. The 12 Year is a great addition to your Scotch collection. You'll have some Highland, Islay, Lowland and Cambeltown, but this is one of the only whiskies you'll find aged in two different barrels. It sets itself apart. How should you drink it? Pour it in your favorite straight-sided glass, neat. Put a glass of ice or water next to it. Some sippers like a splash of water "to wake up the whisky." Have your first sip straight, then drop in a cube to cool it a touch. The water will expand the flavor. Any way you have it, you'll taste the love and care of dedicated distillers. Buy The Balvenie 12 year Doublewood online at a great price on Drizly and have it delivered directly to your door or pick it up in store.

    I'm not a Scotch connoisseur but coming from the bourbon world, I really enjoy it. It seems to be the perfect Scotch for a whiskey drinker. It's a little pricey so only for a special occasion and would also make a lovely gift for a Scotch it a whiskey drinker who wants to expand their pallet

    Absolutely one of the most reasonably priced world class single malts. If you haven’t tried it you can thank me later.

    My boyfriend loves to try out different drinks. The Balvenie 12 yr Doublewood is a classic. It is a bit strong, once you coat it around your mouth. You can taste the fruity aroma with a smoky finish. He loves this drink. Highly recommend :)

FAQs

Yes, whiskey is gluten-free, thanks to the distillation process used to make it. The Celiac Disease Foundation concluded that it can safely be considered gluten-free, though it’s still possible that some people with high gluten sensitivity or celiac disease could have a reaction to whiskeys created from certain grains.
Whiskey can include a large number of different distilled spirits made from fermented grain mash — usually cereal grains like rye, barley malt, wheat and corn. The drink undergoes aging in wooden containers, most often oak.
One of the reasons whiskey is so popular is that there’s no single way to enjoy it. There’s the purist route — straight and neat, no mixers, no ice — but what fun is being a purist? You can add water to it, which can enhance certain bottles’ flavors or you can add it with other ingredients to make delicious mixed drinks. It’s the foundation of the Manhattan, the Old Fashioned, the Whiskey Sour and many others.
