The Deveron 18 Year Old
This time last year I was lucky enough to try a work in progress version of this dram. at a slightly more palatable 46% abv.
I’m a little disappointed as I had hoped all new range drams would be at 46%, this technically isn’t new range as was previously part of the Glen Deveron range, but I do understand why whisky companies choose to continue to bottle at 40%.
I'm disappointed with the mouthfeel and short finish which was definitely better on the work in progress that I tried at the distillery, this is a nice dram to drink, I'm just think it's not quite as nice as the version I tried last year, but then I will also admit that occasion and environment has a part to play in whisky tasting.
Thanks to The Deveron for including me on this tasting
Woody and malty, with sawdust and oak wood sap, barley sugars which seem to be consistent throughout the range, hints of fresh fruit salad and mint leaves, a touch of menthol and salad greens and some light syrup.
Fruity, menthol, and mint leaves, wood sap and malty wood sap and light syrup covered custard creams, barley sugars and a hint of ground white pepper
Short again, mostly custard creams and barley sugars
