The organic single malt market shows no signs of slowing down, and Deanston have chipped in with another top-notch bottling.
Made in the traditional Deanston fashion, this is a 14 year old single malt, that seeks to emphasize the flavour of the organic malt, by maturing the spirit in former Bourbon American oak casks, before a finishing period in new oak barrels.
The whisky has a restrained oak influence, without the heavier flavours of a sherry or wine cask, ensuring that the essential qualities of the malt shines through.
This Deanston Organic 14 is rich in light, sweet cereal flavours, with some delightful oaky notes of tropical fruit, alongside classically Highland flavours of robust, spicy grain and vanilla.
A top quality release from Deanston, even better for being bottled at 46.3% ABV, and without chill filtration or artificial colouring.
