Deanston 18 Year Old Bottling Note

A 2015 addition to the Deanston range, this expression has been matured for 18 years, including a finishing period in first-fill Kentucky bourbon casks. It was bottled without chill filtration at 46.3% ABV. Oodles of rich honey, luxurious vanilla, sugary shortbread and a touch of fresh ginger. You don't get to see much Deanston these days, so more expressions from them are always welcome!

Deanston 18 Year Old Reviews

More bourbon that previous versions

Compared to the 2020 version of this it has much more bourbon on the nose and less malted barley, which I thought was a disappointment at first. However, the flavour is really quite a nice sweet surprise. So 4 out of 5.

Received A Miniature Bottle of This Sublime 18 Year old Malt Whisky, I WILL Certainly Be On The Hunt for A Full 70 cl Bottle of This Sublime Nectar, To Help Me Sleep At Night 🌙🌙🌙

Quality all the way

Just had my first Deanston 18 delivered from MoM, and was expecting something special, seeing how much i enjoyed the 12, and have to say am not disappointed. Every facet of this scotch just screams quality, and all i'm bothered about is trying to make it last a little longer !! I wont repeat the nose and flavours as others have done, but as someone who normally gravitates towards sherry monsters & islay drams, this makes a wonderful change - i love it can you tell !!

Hard to better this, but I’ll keep trying.

Each birthday or Christmas I get my family to buy me 2 bottles of Whisky, one for drinking and one for keeping, have to say it’s going to be difficult keeping the second bottle of the Deanston 18 Year Old, may need a repeat order !
Simply superb, one of my favourites.

Very Plesant.

I bought two bottles of the 18 year as Christmas presents ( one for me!). Very glad I did as it’s an excellent dram.

I can very warmly recommend this single malt whisky.

Creamy vanilla, sweet apples, treacle, very complex oak structure.
Really very wonderful aromas, similar to well aged Calvados.

An absolute citrus bomb! Orange and Apricot dominate. Bottled with integrity at 46.3%, natural colour and without chill filtration. A highly accomplished malt from a distillery rapidly growing in stature.

The DEANSTON 1''8yo, 46,3%abv, natural color, non-chill filtered:

AGE comes through well. OLD dusty wood, dry bark, oak nuts, chestnuts. Fresh red and yellow APPLES, juicy, clean, like in a young GLENGOYNE.

Nectarines, dried pineapple. Raspberries. Tropical - mango, papaya. Coconut water. Slight banana note. Freshly pressed orange juice, blood oranges, orange peels, sweet tangerines. Lime juice and lime peels.
Wild strawberries. Candied morello cherries. Black currants. Brambles (Blackberries).
Soft marzipan in the back of it.

Vanilla pod. With aeration, STAR ANISE.

Very soft refreshing minerality. Earthy.

Palate is sweet, fruity, and with a mild mature bitterness. Cardamon. Cinnamon. Slightly drying.
Cocoa powder as it goes down.

Fruitier than the 1''2, softer, and somewhat drier. Sweet, but does not have the caramel you find on the 1''2 ( vanilla, however, definitely ). The 1''8 furthermore lacks the certain barnyard funk I get in the 1''2.

Short finish - Otherwise, this is ~
~ Very solid.
