Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 50.3%
This extraordinarily dark 37-year-old Deanston 1974 was bottled to mark the opening of the Deanston Heritage centre in 2012. As you might have guessed, this 1974 Deanston is from sherry wood - a single Oloroso sherry butt, to be precise.
Bottled at its natural cask strength of 50.3% without colouring or chill filtration, this 37-year-old Deanston was the oldest ever official bottling from the distillery at the time of release - and one of the rarest, with just 102 bottles yielded from the cask. A landmark bottling for Deanston and a real treasure from an unsung distillery.
|Cask Type||Oloroso Sherry Butt|
