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.

*UK and retail only. Applies to valid purchases of 70cl Deanston Virgin Oak. Offer from 17 07 2023, while stock lasts.

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.

Reviews for Deanston Virgin Oak
Quite the accomplishment
Reminiscent of Mackmyra’s first Swedish oak releases, and believe me, that is high compliment.

Good bourbon notes from a scotch malt whisky
Love this one . Can't believe , like nosing a Wild Turkey 101 . Lots of bourbon notes on the palate and the prickly sensation on the tongue due to the virgin cask finish in 2nd maturation with a long finish.

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!)
