BALVENIE (The) 17 YEAR OLD Double Wood 43%

Single Malt, Scotland / Speyside 70cl Ref: 17547

Aged in bourbon casks and finished in sherry casks, this version has managed to find the perfect balance between these two contrasting worlds. This success is largely due to the quality of the casks chosen for this whisky. Silky tannins, sweet spices, honey, vanilla and heady florals are just some of the flavours that emerge in this 17 year-old Balvenie.

Profile: firm. Spices (ginger, cinnamon). Notes of eucalyptus, peppered rose and lime blossom honey. Chocolate, straw and cep. Floral, sherry (toffee, tar, toasted walnuts, chocolate, cherries in brandy).

Tasting note

  • Appearance : burnished gold with glints of copper.
  • Nose : firm, solid. Spices (cinnamon, ginger) with a fine woodiness gives structure to notes of eucalyptus, peppered rose and lime blossom honey. Chocolatey, it develops with dried straw and mushrooms (cep). Increasingly floral, the sherry gradually settles in (toffee, tar, toasted walnuts, chocolate, cherries in brandy).
  • Palate : lively, vigorous. Different from the nose, it begins by revealing its “blue flower” side. Bourbon vanilla, apple jelly and roses follow. The mid-palate is much more heady (iris, lily) and spicy (cloves, ginger). Chilli then brings the power needed for its development.
  • Overall : long, powdery. Freshly crushed cocoa beans, cashew nuts and almonds. Their powders and silky tannins gently coat the taste buds. The retronasal olfaction is delicately woody (oak) and the empty glass heady (reseda, tuberose).
The brand

The brand

Only a handful of Scottish distilleries can claim to have been owned by the same family since their inception. Balvenie continues to malt part of their own barley, which is grown in a neighbouring field, before drying it in their impressive kiln, where a couple of blocks of peat adds to the authenticity of this single malt. Next, the yeast, the shape of the stills and the watchful eye of the stillman all help contribute to the aromas of this magnificent Speyside whisky. Finally, it is aged in casks built in the neighbouring coopery. Find out more
