An 18-year-old from Deanston bottled by That Boutique-y Whisky Company. 

This is Batch 5 that indie bottlers Boutique-y have sourced from the distillery, bottled at 47.6% with 148 bottles in the run.

Deanston is notable for having a waxy new make (like Clynelish or Dailuaine), probably thanks to a lengthy fermentation and ascending lyne arms. Works very well with American oak.

This is a whisky of rich barley and orchard fruit notes, with caramels and oak on the front palate leading to nuttiness and spice on the finish.

Tasting notes:

Nose: Golden barley, charred oak and boiled orange sweets, followed by cinnamon and bruised orchard fruit.

Palate: Salted caramel, marmalade and a little gingerbread initially, then oily nuttiness, pink grapefruit bitterness and a soft, floral vanilla undertones develop.

Finish: Tropical fruit salad and a prickle of baking spice linger.

From Boutique-y: 

"Back in 1965, the Deanston distillery found its home in an old cotton mill on the backs of the River Leith. The distillery is equipped with a turbine and a dam, meaning the river lends a hand when it comes to providing Deanston with power. Thanks, Mother Nature!

"As we mentioned, the distillery was founded in the ‘60s - that’s when all the hippies existed, with their jazzy t-shirts and headbands and whatnot. Hence why our Deanston label has a pair of hippies watching the stills of Deanston be installed. Far out! Groovy! Another phrase a hippy might say! Yeah!:
