I would rather buy a bottle of the Balvenie Doublewood 12,
instead of this one; it is missing something. Not that it is a bad dram – far from that, but it is quite – lacking a better word – boring.
More info: Three different cask types have been married in order to create this whisky: a first-fill ex-Bourbon, a refill ex-Bourbon and an ex-Sherry cask. First appeared on the market to honour Balvenie’s Malt Master David Steward’s 45 years of active duty in the whisky industry.
It is not being created any longer.
