Found 30th Oct 2011
I picked up a bottle of this rather fine 12 yo malt at Morrisons in Arbroath yesterday.

"Balvenie Double Wood 12 Bottling Note
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."

what an heathen. Nice malt, not that I'm an expert but got this as a present and many of my friends also like the smokey flavour of balvenie. Hot for me.

What size bottle is this? 70cl?

Yup, 70cl. I really like this malt.
What is the normal price for this single malt?
Wouldn't ever describe Balvenie as having a smoky flavour, as someone did above, so don't let that put you off if you don't like the smoky/peaty stuff. I would describe it as quite sweet, with a heathery, honeyish taste. Also some sherry notes, due to being partially aged in ex-sherry casks.

For me a meh sort of whisky, but I know lots like it. Seems a reasonable rather than stellar deal.
i like this and have got a few bottles in my cupboard along with a couple bottles of the signature (on offer at tesco)
i have a bottle of this stuff, not quite as agressive as the more peaty ones, easier to drink but still got a fair bit of flavour. makes a nice change to talisker and laphroig.

Would you say there is much difference between them?
