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 – consecutive maturation in two different types of cask, a process often referred to as ‘cask finishing’.  

This technique is at the heart of The Balvenie DoubleWood – 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.

The DoubleWood 17 year old is an elder sibling to DoubleWood 12 year old and shares its honeyed, spicy characteristics, but it is distinctly different, with deeper vanilla notes, hints of green apple, creamy toffee and a striking richness and complexity.

Country: England

Nose: Elegant and complex oak, vanilla, honeyed sweetness and a hint of green apple.

Taste: Sweet with dried fruits, sherbet spice, toasted almonds and cinnamon, layered with a richness of creamy toffee notes and traces of oak and deep vanilla.

Finish: Vanilla oak, honey and spicy sweetness.

打造百富DoubleWood雙桶17年單一麥芽威士忌,首席調酒師大衛史都華再次展現他最受讚揚的工藝成就——使用兩種木桶連續熟成,這個過程通常稱為「過桶」(cask finishing)。這項技術是百富DoubleWood雙桶系列的核心,威士忌首先在美國傳統橡木桶內熟成,獲得柔和的香草風味,再移至歐洲雪莉橡木桶內陳放,增添香料氣息、豐厚口感與複雜度。DoubleWood雙桶17年為倍受好評的DoubleWood雙桶12年的高年份版本,有著與12年版本相同的蜂蜜香甜口感與香料風味,但其香草香更為濃郁,且增加了微微的青蘋果香、綿密的太妃糖味、豐厚口感與複雜度。
