Tasting Notes by JohnSilver
This is the Balvenie´s double wood. The whisky matured in a whisky oak and spent few months in a sherry cask.
Legs are thin not so close to one another and go down the glass not so quickly after a while.
After adding water a teardrop of water fuity flavour and sherry appears, while nosing. Taste remains almost the same, but you can feel the fruit and sherry more. Still the taste disappears quickly and there´s almost no finish at all.
I am not a skilled gourmand, so have a look on other reviews, but I all in all like Balvenie´s double wood. It is a pretty nice whisky. The taste is nice, but the taste is not that rich as you get in other whiskies in the same price range. And the finish simply won´t come.
