Glen Deveron is the name given to single malts from the Dewar’s-owned Macduff Distillery, and this sherry cask-finished expression is part of the Royal Burgh collection available exclusively at World Duty Free’s World of Whiskies stores in the UK and Spain (the Heathrow Terminal 5 location provided a sample for tasting).
The nose has notes of hazelnut, orange oils, and mango, but holds its smoothness despite being very fruity and fresh. The taste is thick, oily, and complex with orange oils, mango and coconut at first, then turns aromatic and slightly dry with good subtle spices. The finish is long, complex, and well-rounded with good fruity notes of orange oils, banana, and vanilla. (October, 2014)
