Deerstalker 18 yr. old comes to the U.S.

September 28th, 2009

Deerstalker 18YO - Chosen ImageI  just received an email from the importer. Deerstalker 18 year old, (distilled at the Balmenach distillery) is now being imported to the U.S. It’s aged in used bourbon barrels (he hinted that previous bottlings were from sherry casks), bottled at 46% and not chill-filtered.

There are also 10, 12 and 15 year old expressions of Deerstalker, and it is their intention to bring the remainder of the Deerstalker line to the U.S. in 2010.

For those interested in more information regarding availability, pricing, etc., you can contact the importer directly: Bill Peryer (
