The Balvenie Doublewood 12YO Royal Selangor Gift Pack
DoubleWood 12 was first released in 1993, and it was made utilizing a procedure that our Malt Master David Stewart invented in 1982 and is now known as ‘wood finishing.’
David Stewart MBE transforms whisky that has spent at least 12 years in ordinary whisky casks, American Oak ex-bourbon barrels, and hogsheads into The Balvenie DoubleWood by aging it for an extra nine months in Spanish oak ex-Oloroso sherry casks.
The whisky is then moved to enormous oak vessels known as “tuns” for 3-4 months to allow individual cask whiskies to “marry.”
The Balvenie DoubleWood single malt whisky is distinguished by its maturation in two separate types of oak. Each stage imparts distinct characteristics to the finished single malt whisky.
The conventional casks soften and provide delicate character, the sherry wood adds depth and richness of flavour, and the whiskies blend harmoniously in our tuns for the final few months.
