Deanston 18 Year Cognac Cask
Deanston // Highlands, Scotland
This is a release exclusive to the US market, limited to only 2,640 bottles. Master Distiller Ian MacMillan used the proprietary 12 year-old Deanston whisky, and then aged it for an additional 6 years in casks he selected from the Hine Cognac distillery located in Grande Champagne. It is un-chill filtered.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
"Spicy ginger, dark cocoa and cashews awaken the palate. Then orchard fruits and berries kick in with a slight waft of smoke left over from the initial bourbon barrel aging. The overall effect is subtle and smooth, very easy to sip. Would be delicious with a bite of dark chocolate on the side!"
