We haven’t finished Deanston in Banyuls casks before, and with Deanston’s unique waxy character it lends itself so well to several different cask types, so I knew the spirit would be complimented by the flavours of figs and strawberries from the Banyuls cask
The Banyuls casks add a complex aromatic profile – initially a sweet note with a beautiful cherry aroma which compliments the citrusy character of Deanston. The casks also added a hint of black pepper, oak and chocolate.
Deanston Banyuls can be enjoyed by everyone. It’s an approachable, easy to drink whisky which is perfect for people starting their whisky journey, but its also really complex with lots of layers of flavours from almond and figs to red chilli flakes which connoisseurs will enjoy.
