Deerstalker 18

Another Highland Dram... Why not!


Deerstalker has a long and storied history dating back to 1880, but it has been away from the US for a long time-- we are glad to have it back! This 18-year-old expression of Deerstalker is an intriguing and inviting Single Malt—a welcomed addition to any bar, and an excellent gift for any Scotch lover. The nose is filled with vegetal tones, eucalyptus, flowers, straw, candied nuts and clean spice. The palate is full-bodied and calefacient with balanced tropical fruit, layers of toasty oak, roasted filberts, walnut, spice, crème caramel and fennel. The finish appears gracefully and lingers showing deep wood notes, intricate spice and a clean resolve. Have this is neat, in an appropriate glass-- perhaps with a friend.
