Bar Balvenie Doublewood same as retail ?

Postby latuller » Sat Apr 23, 2016 9:16 pm

My husband swears the Doublewood he has in a bar tastes different than what he purchases retail. The label on the bottle is slightly different (the retail bottle has a description of the aging casks and the bar bottle does not) but we're wondering if the product inside each bottle is the same? (maybe the ice makes all the difference!)

I don't see how they could be different, unless they have different age statements, or different alcohol content. Even if they were produced in different years, I think Balvenie Doublewood is rather consistent.

It is possible that the different ice used in the bar than at home, could make it taste slightly different.
