To create Deanston Virgin Oak, Master Distiller Ian MacMillan selected an array of young single malts, married them together, then finished the blend in freshly-charred new oak barrels from a small family-owned cooperage in Bardstown, Kentucky. Bottled without the use of chill-filtration, Virgin Oak offers a complex nose of barley, lemon zest, pear, vanilla and honey, accented by hints of peat smoke, apple and nutmeg. The virgin oak aging is more apparent on the palate, with lighter notes of candied fruit, toffee, caramel and vanilla balanced by a firm oak grip. A lively note of honeyed malt lingers through the finish.
