Deanston 1999 Muscat Cask Finish. Image courtesy Deanston/Distell.This Highland single malt spent 17 years in ex-Bourbon casks and the final two years in Muscat wine casks. The nose is fruity with notes of fresh berries, honey, dried apricots, and a hint of oak. The taste has a great balance of dried fruits, baking spices, heather, honey, vanilla cream, mango, papaya, and caramel. The finish is very long with lingering touches of spices and dried fruits. Very nice! (March, 2019)
