Deanston Virgin Oak Cask Strength 2023 Edition

3rd October 2023
Deanston adds a Virgin Oak Cask Strength expression to its core range line-up.

Deanston Virgin Oak Cask Strength Batch 1 2023 EditionStraight from the cask to your glass, Deanston Distillery, nestled along the banks of the River Teith in Stirlingshire, has announced the release of the inaugural batch of Deanston Virgin Oak Cask Strength.

This limited-edition whisky embarked on its journey by being initially aged in barrels previously home to American bourbon, imparting that distinctive and uniquely waxy, citrusy character that distinguishes Deanston. Subsequently, it underwent a 12-month finishing period in virgin American oak barrels sourced all the way from the Kelvin Cooperage in Kentucky. This final maturation in pristine oak casks bestows upon it a depth of flavour, featuring bold notes of warming spices, candied fruit, green apple, and citrus, all harmoniously balanced.

Deanston Virgin Oak Cask Strength Batch 1 is said to authentically embody Deanston's distinct waxy character and signature style. It is unadulterated by added colour, unburdened by chill filtration, and asserts itself with an what should be a very flavoursome cask strength of 58.5% ABV.

Although there will be limited availability each year of the Cask Strength expression it joins the ranks of the outstanding and highly acclaimed Deanston Virgin Oak bottling in Deanston's core range line-up.

The Deanston Virgin Oak Cask Strength Batch 1 has a RRP of £60 and will be available f
rom specialist online whisky shops such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt
