Deanston has taken their signature soft and honeyed malt and finished it in Muscat casks to bring an boost of citrus zest to the flavour profile. This limited-edition release was distilled and filled into whisky re-fill casks in October 1991, before being transferred into Muscat casks in June 2016. Bottled at 28 years old, this expression comes at 45% ABV and without chill-filtration or added colouring. Just 1402 bottles are available.
A sweet perfume tingles the nose, with notes of peach and cereal giving the impression of a fruit crumble. The palate is full bodied, with indulgent, mouth-coating oily, citrus notes. The finish is short and sweet, with a hint of cocoa right at the end.
