This funky looking bottle contains Deanston whisky with an emphasis very much on the Bourbon cask provenance.
The Highland distillery’s spirit has been aged a combination of first and second fill former Bourbon casks, before being treated to “soft filtration” and bottled.
The result is a light, crisp dram with notes of bright Bourbon oak, creamy grain, malt, vanilla, apples, pears, light pineapple, toffee, butter, a little peppery cinnamon spice and some honey.
The back label suggests enjoying this dram “any damn way you like”, highlighting its potential as a mixing malt. Indeed, we reckon this dram would do brilliantly served over ice with lemonade or cream soda.
A nice, approachable entry level dram.
