15 year old Toasted Oak expression from eight different bourbon barrels, an experiment with four different levels of char and toast, all vatted to finish in four hogsheads. Non-chill filtered and naturally colored. Deanston is now the only distillery in Scotland to be self-sufficient in electricity, with power generated by an on-site hydro-energy facility.
This is very sweet. Powdered sugar, charred caramel and syrup. Sweet armangac fruit notes as well. Dense on the palate with brown sugar, toasted almonds, cashew, and green apple skin. Cookie dough emerges mid palate. Honey, bees wax and hints of salt on the medium finish.
