The Deanston 2002 Organic PX Finish is a Highlands single malt and limited edition from the Deanston distillery. This Deanston was distilled in 2002 and matured in bourbon casks followed by a finish in Organic PX (Pedro Ximenez) sherry casks. It was bottled in 2020 at natural cask strength of 49.6% ABV, non chill filtered and with no added colour.
Distilled in 2002 and matured in new white American oak casks. (Bourbon casks couldn’t be used for the maturation as most bourbon is not truly organic.) However, Pedro Ximenez sherry is organic, which meant after 12 years maturing in the new American oak casks the whisky could be finished in a PX cask. At 49.6% ABV at the time of bottling and spending 1/4 of its life in PX casks this dram is a stunner.
