Deanston 15 Year Old Tequila Cask Finish is an experimental, limited-edition release. A celebration of tequila infused spirit with a true highland character. The whisky has been finished in hand-selected casks that once held Agave Tequila from the Jaliscan Highlands in Mexico. A truly fruity and floral dram with sweet and warming notes.
This limited-edition release was first matured in traditional Oak hogsheads before being finally being finished in Agave Tequila casks.
The tequila casks used to create this expression originally held high-quality 100% agave tequila. Weber (blue agave) grown exclusively in the Altos region of Jalisco. Tequilas from the Altos region are known for their more fruity and floral character. The casks originally held the same style of tequila for four to five fills - being disgorged both as Reposado (aged for just under one year) and Añejo (aged up to 3 years).
The fruity floral notes from the tequila cask selection beautifully complements the citrusy, waxy versatile character of the Deanston whisky.
Fresh aromas with notes of ripe pineapple, crème brulee, mixed nuts and light oak.
Rich, yet dry on the palate. It's bursting with flavours of caramelised agave, toasted almonds, baked apples with custard and warming spice.
The long finish has hints of brown spice and sweet, citrus bursts.
The colour of the whisky is all natural and it's non-chill filtered.
