    DESCRIPTION
    The Balvenie DoubleWood is a 12 year old single malt that gains its distinctive character from being matured in two wood types. Over the period of maturation it is transferred from a traditional oak whisky cask to a first fill European oak sherry cask.
    Each stage lends different qualities to the resulting single malt - the traditional casks soften and add character, whilst the sherry wood brings depth and fullness of flavour.
    KNOWLEDGE BAR

    In days gone by, the 'Dipping Dog' would have been employed by thirsty employees at the Balvenie distillery to pilfer whisky by lowering a cylinder into a cask. On retrieving it, its canny owner would have secured his haul by tightly sealing the opening with a cork.

    Then the precious contents would have been gently lowered down the employee's trouser leg by a piece of rope and tethered to his belt. The cylinder became know as a 'dog' on account of it being a man's best friend that, like its canine counterpart, was also kept on a lead by one's side.

    Today this ingenious contraption is utilised by the Malt Master, David Stewart when sampling an expression directly from the cask.
