Description

The Deanston 18 Year Old is an award-winning single malt Scotch whisky that unfolds like a carefully composed melody. Matured for 18 years in American white oak ex-bourbon barrels, this whisky transcends the typical Highland malt profile. Imagine stepping into a sun-drenched room where the air hums with the sweetness of honeycomb and vanilla. A gentle wave of spice, like a whisper of ginger, adds a touch of intrigue. Hints of ripe orchard fruits – crisp apple and maybe even a touch of stewed pear – peek through, creating a delightful harmony.

On the palate, the Deanston 18 Year Old delivers a luxurious, almost oily texture that caresses the tongue. The initial sweetness of honey and vanilla takes center stage, interwoven with notes of soft barley sugar. As you savor it, whispers of stewed apple and a hint of baking spice emerge, adding depth and complexity. The finish is long and lingering, leaving behind a pleasant warmth and a touch of sandalwood that lingers on the breath.

This isn’t your typical bold and smoky Highland malt. The Deanston 18 Year Old is a masterclass in balance and subtlety. It’s a whisky for those who appreciate nuance and enjoy exploring the intricate layers of flavor that time and careful cask selection can create.
