Deanston 2008 is a Highland single malt whisky that has been simply aged in casks that previously held Bordeaux red wine. It's bottled at cask strength which is always a bonus in our opinion. The nose is sweet with toffee and honey but also with spices and citrus. The palate allows the effects of the wine cask aging to shine through; rich grapes and dark chocolate abound along with more honey. The finish is suitably long with fruit and spices.
