Cadenhead’s ‘Small Batch’ Deanston 10 Year Old Cask Strength 700ml 56.2%
Ex-bourbon cask whisky, distilled in 2008 yielding 576 bottles.
Cask Type: Bourbon
Bottler: Wm Cadenhead
From the extensive collection of W.M. Cadenhead ‘Small Batch’ independent bottlings comes this 10-year-old year old single malt, distilled by the Deanston Distillery in the Scottish Highlands. Deanston was a former mill that was converted into a distillery in 1966.
This nutty and fruity expression was from a marriage of just two bourbon Hogsheads. As with all Cadenhead expressions, the small batch series is non-chill filtered with no added colouring.
