Deanston 2006 12 Year Old Fino Finish Review

27th June 2018
Review of the Deanston 2006 12 Year Old Fino Finish Distell Limited Release 2019 Malt Whisky Collection.

Deanston 2006 12 Year Old Fino FinishOne of three Deanston expressions in Distell's Limited Release Malt Whisky Collection 2019, this Deanston 2006 12 Year Old Fino Finish is actually the first time Fino sherry has been used to mature Deanston spirit, it was initially matured in bourbon casks for 9 and a half years, then transferred to Fino sherry casks for a further 2 and a half years.

Bottled at a cask strength of 55% ABV, naturally coloured and non-chillfiltered, it is a limited release of 268 bottles, with a RRP of 65 it will be available here in the UK, Europe, Taiwan, China and Global Travel Retail.

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Barley sugared sweet malt, raisin and orange, a touch of honey, some vanilla toffee and a little gentle spice.

Taste: Deliciously rich and smooth, raisins and orange citrus infused with some lovely spices, a little cinnamon and pepper. Some creamy toffee and a late touch of milk chocolate.

Finish: Dried fruit, sweet toffee and lingering oak spice.

Comment: I particularly enjoyed this one and I would say quality for price this is the bargain buy from this years Distell Malt Collection at 65 and with only 268 available I think this will sell out fast.

SMW Score 90/100
