The Balvenie Scotch Single Malt 17 Year Doublewood
The nose is full of sweet vanilla notes with a crisp, ripe green apple bite to it. There is also a slight banana note coming through that gives a great depth to it. The vanilla is full of soft oak tones that are rich and refined. There is also a little hint of spice, with the vanilla become slightly cinnamon in tone. This goes wonderfully with the oak and fruit flavours that appear. On the palette this dram is filled with raisin, apricots, sultanas and dates.
