A limited-edition release from Deanston which showcases the distillery's 100% natural process over the course of 17 years. This expression was distilled and filled into whisky re-fill casks in December 2002 for 14 years, before being transferred into organic PX casks in May 2016. Just 2505 bottles were produced, all at a cask strength of 49.3% ABV and without chill-filtration or added colouring.
Very dry on the nose, this eco-conscious malt has slightly sulphury notes which roll back to reveal sweet dried fruits, raisins and dates. The palate is sweeter, with caramel and maple-syrup coating the mouth, alongside mixed candied peel and sherry soaked raisins. The finish is long and sweet, fading to honeyed cashews.
