Aged in ex-bourbon casks before being finished in sherry casks, Double Wood is an excellent example of what the Balvenie distillery can craft, even at 12 years.

Love it. Love the flavors, love the value. It's one of the first scotches I ever had and I keep going back for more.
 
Christine
Christine,
Strong vanilla and sherry aroma, followed by oak and spice in the flavor and a long finish. It's rich, sweet, and strong - not actually my favorite flavor profile for a Scotch, but have to admit it's still quite nice.

My daily go to scotch.

Easy on the nose. Hints of cinnamon, vanilla, delicious.

This is the scotch to which I compare all other scotches. It’s not the best out there, but it’s an excellent baseline.

I have only had it once, but I was delighted. It's not too sweet, but the flavors were intriguing. It's very smooth and worth revisiting

Very good entry level single malt. Good value. Great beginner's single malt.
 
David
David,
I like this scotch. I have a bottle and will replace it when it's gone. Vanilla, honey, and oak are the main flavors I can detect. I can't really taste the sherry cask as this is usually a turn off for me.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Smooth first taste. Crisp finish, fine aftertaste. By far my favorite.

This is what got me started on appreciating better scotch. Nice and easy. Though the 17 year has kind of spoiled me.

The Sherrie cask aging rescues this whiskey and imparts some richness to this otherwise young feeling and tasting dram. I would buy only under $50 US.
