Deanston Virgin Oak, Single Malt Whisky, 70cl.
A wonderfully different single malt whisky. The use of virgin oak is slowly becoming more prominent but is still a risky endeavour as you can very quickly end up with a very one dimensional single malt. Deanston however, have not and have instead created a great whisky displaying the possible benefits of virgin oak.
Nose: Fresh citrus, honeyed barley and a subtle hint of smoke.
Palate: Toffee sweets pop up first, followed by a dollop of cream and oak notes.
Finish: Oak spices on the finish.
