Deanston Virgin Oak Bottling Note
Deanston Virgin Oak is made with young whisky which has been finished in brand new oak casks from Kentucky. Always a pleasure to have Deanston single malt Scotch whisky around, as they are certified by the Organic Food Association and power their distillery using hydro energy, so you can always feel good about the delicious dram in your hand.

Nose: Fresh citrus, honeyed barley and a subtle hint of smoke.
Palate: Toffee sweets pop up first, followed by a dollop of cream and oak notes.
Finish: Oak spices on the finish.
Overall: Well made, the new oak doesn't take over the whisky at all, which is always a risk with these casks.
this stuff is great!!!
Very tasty and pretty cheap... Even in canada.
Cheap in US
I have come to a conclusion about myself: I like new oak. There I said it. I find new oak whisky to be very tasty. And like the more popular sherry or port casks, new oak can really make young whisky sparkle. I like this whisky, here are some notes...
Nose: liquorice, straw, fresh cut grass, chip truck fries with vinegar on them, roses, tomato soup.
Taste: sweet, lemon
Colour: light straw

Surprisingly rich for a No Age Statement whisky. I actually ran into the sales rep for its distributor while I was browsing in the store and his description matched my tastes pretty well, so I bought it. Salesman said it's about 9 years old at the time of bottling. There's a slight fruity aspect to the nose and a delightful flavor toffee on the palate. Add a drop of water to this 46% whisky to ignite all the flavors and enjoy!

I'm telling you. Keep in mind, this is a no age statement and for it being bottled at 46.3%, non-chilled filtered and no caramel color added, that's pretty impressive. It's simple,but all the little that it has packs a wallop. It has all the goodies that we like in a good dram: vanilla, oak, spice, cream, baked goods, toffee. I really enjoyed this one. I will purchase this again!

Not quite as smooth as the Deanston 12 but with many of the same positive characteristics. It's $15-20 cheaper than the 12 in my area, so we keep it around as a less expensive option.
