The entry expression in the Deanston core range is double matured – first in older American oak and then finished for 9-12 months in virgin oak casks. Non-chillfiltered, naturally coloured and bottled at 46.3%.
Nose: Heady virgin oak, bursting with lemon zest and sweet barley sugar, with delicious notes of apple and nutmeg.
Palate: A delightful sweetness, evoking memories of candied fruits and vanilla toffee, balanced with heather honey.
Finish: A satisfying light spice, with a rewarding burst of honeyed malt and sweet oakiness.
