Deanston Virgin Oak Bottling Note

Deanston Virgin Oak is made with young whisky which has been finished in brand new oak casks from Kentucky.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

Deanston Virgin Oak Reviews

The whisky equivalent of a good house wine

A smooth one - all sweet toffee and fruit with honey on the nose. Not especially complex, but a very pleasant drink.

Robust NAS whisky

The Deanston VO is bottled at 46.3% uncolored and non chill filtered. Decent traditional vanilla bourbon style NAS whiskey. A little rough around the edges due to its short maturation and highland malt spirit.

A solid & robust NAS whisky

Deanston is a fairly modern distillery with a traditional craftsmanship style. Their Deanston VO is bottled at 46.3% and non-chill filtered, they didn't skimp on the presentation of the substance.

This whisky is finished on virgin oak casks that are normally used to age bourbon. It gives the whisky a decent new wood influence and a little more depth of flavor and smoothens out the rougher highland character a bit. The Deanston malt distillate is fairly rough as one would expect from a highlander and not as refined as speysides.

Overall if you are into bourbon and bourbon cask matured whisky and can get this for around 25-30 it is a good bang for buck no age statement whisky, that is better then a lot of entry age statements and whiskies that cost twice as much.

Two to three stars on the MoM ratings scale and four stars for price performance. Wild Turkey 101 equivalent of single malt.

A great go to

I often give this as a gift to beginners or whisky drinkers who don't think they like Scotch whisky. Very smooth, a little sweet and citrusy. Doesn't scare anyone. Good bang for the buck.

My go-to single malt whisky.

I keep coming back to this whisky because it is so clean tasting but full of flavour despite being aged in virgin oak and at a reasonable price.
I enjoy most malts and will continue to browse but this whisky and its organic relation (not cheap!) are too good to ignore.
Master of Malt have record deliveries -- it arrives before you have closed the web page (Seemingly!)

Vanilla taste take over the other taste

Too much vanilla flavor

Really enjoying!

Somethings…………….better. I can’t put my finger on it. Perhaps the new Master Distiller? Who knows. It’s still Deanston VO, but it’s going ‘out out’

It's whisky ... but boring

I got this as a free sample with another order. I always like to discover new whiskies, but sadly this one isn't one I'm in any hurry to repeat. It's very ordinary. I can't really find anything in it other than the burn of the spirit, to my palate there's no interesting, complexity or depth of flavour.
