Deanston 18 Year Cognac Finish. Image courtesy Deanston/Burn Stewart. This Highland single malt started out as Deanston’s traditional 12-year-old expression, then was filled into specially selected Cognac casks for an additional six years of maturation. The result is a whisky with a smooth, buttery nose that has touches of malt along with pineapple, coconut, vanilla, and oak notes. The taste has a good balance of honey, ginger snap cookies, pineapple, mango, and a touch of dark chocolate. The finish has lingering spices, a touch of citrus fruits, and a subtle oakiness. Very nice. (February, 2015)
