We mature our whisky using generous amounts of fine, Sherry-Oak Casks to produce a fuller and fruitier taste. This subtle taste is marked by flavours of fine toasted cereals and apple. As the whisky matures it is joined by more complex notes of roasted nuts, exotic fruits, and eucalyptus.
The extended maturation these malts receive in cask (the youngest for sixteen years) gives them exceptional character ensuring a smooth, and exceptionally mellow finish in every sip.
This subtle expression with a golden amber colour has notes of fine toasted cereals and apple, making this a full, fruity malt with a smooth and mellow finish
The Deveron is the name given to official bottlings of single malt from Macduff. A comparatively new distillery, Macduff was founded in 1962 by a consortium of local businessmen. The distillery was taken over by William Lawson’s, who produced the famous blend of the same name, in 1972, by which time the number of stills had been increased from two to four.
The Deveron 16 Year Old is the opening salvo in the range. This single malt is made at Macduff distillery in the Highlands – light and sweet with notes of citrus fruit and spice.
