.deanston – that boutique-y whisky company – batch #2

“Batch 2 of That Boutique-y Whisky Company’s bottling of Deanston single malt features a graphic-novel-style label showing the stills being installed at the cotton mill where Deanston made its home in the 1960s. A pair of hippies watch as this happens, sat on the roof of their camper van alongside the River Teith, which powers the distillery with a turbine and dam. Groovy!”

49.6% abv, €88*, single malt

Nose: sweet, citrus, citrus, oranges, marmalade, milk chocolate
Palate: sweet, citrus, marmalade, oranges, citrus, milk chocolate
Finish: long, sweet, milk chocolate, citrus, a hint of fresh ground coffee
Mark: +++++ 
Conclusion: I like this. A simple, but well made whisky of unknown age, bottled by our friends at That Boutique-y Whisky Company.
More info: That Boutique-y Whisky Company bottles single malts, single grains, blended malts, blends and bourbons from a variety of renowned distilleries. These whiskies are adorned with cultish graphic-novel-style labels.
