Quick comment: Normally casks are previously used, although virgin woods are used in certain cases (virgin French Oak is the one I know for certain, Bruichladdich specifically has been doing so [albeit mostly in their Octomores])

With Covid-19 and travel and other restrictions, what is the scotch tasting experience like these days?
Justin Bowen
55:09
I've never tried the Deanston, how is it?
Scott Poberznick
56:48
Deanston is probably one of my favourites. It's 12 year and is 46.3%
Karen Sargent
57:50
Lagavulin is my favourite - I always have the 12 and 16 on hand
Justin Bowen
57:52
Bowmore is peaty?
Eby Z
58:15
Bowmore is quite peaty... smokey
Scott Poberznick
58:26
Yes, Bowmore has some smoke in it
Justin Bowen
58:47
(I was introduced first through Mortlach, followed by Ardbeg, so my views are a bit off normal)
Justin Bowen
58:54
Respectful percentage, any comments on the taste?
Justin Bowen
59:06
(for the Deanston, should have clarified)
Justin Bowen

If you haven't been to the Scotch Whisky Experience, I'd highly recommend it
Scott Poberznick
01:00:51
I always add a touch of water, it's very smooth and has a bit of a dry finish.
Karen Sargent
01:01:03
Agree with Justin B
Eby Z
01:01:27
Deanston.. never noticed it. at LCBO?
Karen Sargent

Highly recommend the Scotch Whisky Experience if you're in Edinburgh
Justin Bowen
01:01:48
Also, definitely eat there... the food is great and the tasting menus are wonderful
Scott Poberznick
01:02:44
I'm in Alberta, Deanston is quite available here
Justin Bowen
