The Deveron 18 Year
The Deveron // HIghlands, Scotland
On the rugged eastern coast of the Scottish Highlands sits Macduff Distillery, a producer of single malts since 1962. Their production has mostly been used in blends, with official bottlings previously released under the 'Glen Deveron' brand. The oldest expression in Bacardi's Last Great Malts collection, this 18 year single malt has been bottled at 40% ABV.
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.
"Green apple and tropical fruit are found on the nose, along with an oatmeal-like cereal grain. The mouthfeel starts oily and moves more towards creamy, offering honey and toffee, and light herbal notes, with dry spice coming in late. A richer, darker toffee builds overtime. Very fruity once again on the back palate and finish, with more green apple, along with canned peaches. Fairly short and easy finish."
