Deanston 2008 Oloroso Cask Matured Description
Full of industrious spirit! The Deanston Distillery is back with an impressive 2008 vintage, matured in Oloroso sherry casks. The distillery sits on the site of a weaving shed, and the chaps over there like to think of these Oloroso casks as looms of flavour, imparting and interlacing characteristics of dry, nutty sherry with soft single malt.
An environmentally aware distillery, Deanston use ingredients from surrounding farms, and do not add any artificial colouring, or apply chill filtration to the spirit. It is presented at a hearty 52.7% abv and is limited to 13,902 bottles. A quietly innovative spirit, we’d expect nothing less.
Nose: cherries, milk chocolate, nutmeg, nuttiness.
Palate: dark fruits, festive spice, mocha, pine, treacle toffee.
Finish: long and warming, with notes of gingerbread and nutmeg.
