Deanston, a former cotton mill, now a distillery is located in the Highland region in Scotland. What is unusual for the region is that they don’t use peated barley in their whiskies. This whisky has also undergone a transformation of sorts; it’s now bottled at slightly higher proof and is un-chillfiltered to show off the spirit in all its glory.

Tasting Notes

"One of the first aromas that stands out is wool; have the sheep that roam Scotland somehow gotten into the warehouses and gone for a quick dip? Unlikely. Other flavors found are bright lemon zest, breakfast tea and vanilla. The malt might be a bit too plain Jane for those that like to take a walk on the wild side."
