More about the product:
Deanston is a Highland single malt well-known for its nutty, spicy flavours. The aromas of peanuts, cashews and almonds stand out in almost every Deanston single malt whisky we had. The spice in the flavour is peppery and denotes its spirit character and identity as a Highland single malt.
The bottle is a limited edition from the Deanston distillery's cask experiment programme. At 18 years old, the whisky is first matured in sherry cask before getting a finish in bourbon cask. This is unique as most distillers would mature whisky in bourbon casks first before putting it into sherry casks. This special experiment shows how important a bourbon cask is in the maturation process, as the whisky is sweet, nutty and full of dried fruits without the spice.
