I found it slightly different then the scotch I normally drink, but it was good. Very smooth but not much flavor to me.

4.15/5, confession time... all american/bourbon oak finished whiskey is tougher for me to score... it's just not really my bag & the flavor profiles are harder for me to appreciate. What I'm saying is that there isn't any of that wine influence many balvenie double wood fans have come to enjoy... this is different. Nose is extremely tight (not much going on there) but palate has some action in the middle (loads of licorice & faint banana). I guess the bottom-line is know that it's different and that just because you like the double wood series doesn't necessarily mean you'll like this (but I didn't think it was alright to good ;)

mine was the 1995-2011. As a lover of balvenie, I was not disapointed.
