Deanston 18 Year Old 700ml
A 2015 addition to the Deanston range, this expression has been matured for 18 years, including a finishing period in first fill Kentucky bourbon casks. It was bottled without chill filtration at 46.3% ABV.
Oodles of rich honey, luxurious vanilla, sugary shortbread and a touch of fresh ginger. You don't get to see much Deanston these days, so more expressions from them are always welcome.
Nose: Quite aromatic, with balanced American oak notes. Floral, malty, grassy, vanilla and honey with hints of tobacco and nutmeg.
Palate: Sweet and spicy, citrus, barley sugar, gingerbread, Manuka honey and white pepper flavours.
Finish: Dry and spicy with a warming gingery honeyed tail.
