This or Talisker are my everyday whiskeys, not that I drink whisky everyday you understand ;)

I like the hint of citrus on the nose which gives way to a pleasing sweetness. Round on the palate with a hint of vanilla oak and comfortingly warming.

Just right for those after dinner moments by the fire.

I'd take Talisker over The Balvenie but its a good whisky.

Very popular dram with the river Ghillies on Deeside-but then whisky outdoors always seems to taste better when sitting watching the river and listening to the sounds of nature.

I wonder if Balvenie have changed the Doublewood somehow in the past year. I bought a bottle recently at Schiphol duty free, and it didn't seem anywhere near as smooth and rich as previous bottles I have enjoyed. It used to be one of my favourite 'everyday' tipples (well, once a week at least), but I'm going off it a bit now.

drpeter - I've also noticed a bit of inconsistency with smoothness in this bottle.
