This is a 17-year-old version by the master Balvenie Malter David Stewart, again a bestselling Doublewood. Starting life in 'whisky oak' casks its then switched to a sherry wood cask to finish. With these extra 'sherry' years they increase the depth of flavour to something magnificent. Overall a marvellous addition to the Balvenie collection!
I tried a sample of this at the Whisky Show in London in the summer, it was now THE choice for a Christmas dram. I thought it had great character on the palate, easily my new favourite Speyside whisky

The drink is beautiful – a must-have. You need to try it for yourself.

Best scotch I've tasted. Bought this on my wedding night. Tried by at least 4 others and loved by all. Very smooth, almost zero burn on the back of the throat (very important to me). Similar to Glenfiddich 18yo. I am not a world-renowned scotch taster, I just like to enjoy my drink.
