An aroma that is rich with elegant oak and subtle spice. The palate features dried fruits, overlaid with a gentle nuttiness. The finish is long and sherried.\ \ To craft The Balvenie DoubleWood 17 year old single malt whisky Malt Master David C. Stewart MBE returned to one of his most celebrated achievements Ð consecutive maturation in two different types of cask, a process often referred to as Ôcask finishingÕ. ÊThis technique is at the heart of The Balvenie DoubleWood Ð it sees the whisky matured first in American oak barrels, which impart soft sweet vanilla notes, before being transferred to European oak sherry casks, where the second cask ageing adds rich spicy flavours and a depth and fullness of flavour. Raw Craft is an online film series from The Balvenie and Anthony Bourdain celebrating all things craft. In the Raw Craft series, Bourdain traveled across America to discover the unique skills of some of its most talented and dedicated craftspeople, from hand-tailored suits to cast iron skillets, to snare drums made out of whisky casks. Anthony was our dear friend and collaborator, and he is greatly missed. His legacy and influence live on through the love of raw craft."
