Deanston Virgin Oak

by Oliver Klimek on February 19, 2012


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Bright gold
Nose: Freshly cut wood, hay, honey, bees wax, lemon zest, hints of nutmeg.
Palate: Honey, raisins, apples, caramel, hints of nutmeg and pepper.
Finish: Long fruity and slightly spicy.
Overall:  In a way this is Burn Stewart’s Highland equivalent of the Bunnahabhain Darach Ur. It’s not bad at all, but it does not have the richness of its cousin from Islay.

Rating: 83/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

Buy Deanston Virgin Oak at The Whisky Exchange

It’s an extremely quaffable dram at the € 20,= it costs in the Netherlands. The £39.95 it costs in the UK, is a bit too much for this easy sippin’ malt…

I just got it for $20 USD – a great value at that price!
