What is The Chronicles?

We are excited to introduce you to the first edition in The Deanston Chronicles collection.  This collection celebrates our distillery and whisky, combining some of our most unique and prized drams together to create something truly spectacular.  

What's in The Chronicles: Edition 1?

Our Blending Team have chosen four different casks to make up the first bottle in The Chronicles series.  Marrying together four different whiskies from four casks across four decades, they have created a truly unique whisky.  The casks chosen were:

1977 Whisky Refill Casks.
This older whisky cask was very woody, adding wood spice and clove notes to the whisky.  It wouldn't work as a single cask release as it needed something sweeter and mellow to provide a better balance of flavours.

1994 Madeira Wine Casks
This sweet wine cask had imparted notes of toffee, roasted nuts and stewed fruits on our whisky.  It also added fresh notes of creamy apricot which compliment the oily mouth feel of our single malt.

2004 Amontillado Sherry Casks
This added a unique earthy and herbaceous note, as well as an unusual note of hazelnuts and walnuts which aren't usually associated with Deanston.   Altogether much drier on the palate than the other casks in this whisky.

2011 Bourbon Barrels
Chosen to create the classic Deanston 'house style' whisky, the whisky from these casks had notes of crisp apple and barley sugar and really let our waxy characteristic shine through, giving us that phenomenal Deanston mouth feel 

The delicate balance of these four Deanston expressions has allowed our blending team to create a Deanston whisky with notes that we're familiar with - honey, caramel and vanilla - whilst also showcasing how adaptable our Highland single malt is with the distinct flavours from the Madeira and Amontillado casks.  Available only at the Visitor Centre and on our website, don't miss out on your bottle!  

Tasting Notes

Colour

Rich Chestnut.

Nose

An initial sweet burst of berry compote and apricot gives way to fresh flowers, creamy butterscotch, hazelnuts and almonds with hints of honey, light spice and herbs.

Palate

A light acidity with a warming nutmeg and cinnamon spice.  Packed full of stone fruits, caramel, vanilla, toasted oak and a touch of rosemary.

Finish

A buttery finish with spice and almonds which fades to reveal toffee.
