    [January, 2018]  I had not that many Deanston drams so far and this one nobody ever rated before - two very good reasons to crack this bottle open that I bought for 71 Euro in December, 2001.

    All in all one of the best Deanston I had so far- not really spectacular but very quaffable.  Hey, what is whisky made for?
    • Nose
      89 89
      The colour is yellow gold and the texture shows rather fast legs and some later tears. The nose offers a barley sugary sweet and summer floral profile with spicy wooden aromas and some hints of yellow fruits. It is rich and nicely balanced.
    • Taste
      87 87
      The taste itself is very sweet both on sugary and honey flavours. I find more fruits on the palate than in the nose and less floral aromas. The wood adds some delicious spices and provides a nice structure to the sweeter flavours. Actually, not bad at all!
    • Finish
      88 88
      The drams arrives warming and a little peppery in the mouth but shows just a minor coating effect. There are no bitter or astringent moments that distract from the tasting experience (what is good). The finish is of medium length and spicier (white pepper) with a minor cardboardy feeling. Some water turns the nose punchier (releases more alcohol), the taste smoother and takes away this cardboardy feeling in the finish. More water opens up the nose but flattens both the taste and finish. I like to nose this dram neat and prefer to drink it reduced to about 48% abv.

      Start: lovely barley sugary sweetness. Floral notes. Spicy wooden aromas and hints of yellow fruits.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Very sweet, sugary sweetness again and honey flavours. Stronger fruity notes on the palate than in the nose, yes, also less aromas. Lovely wood spices found, all lot of sweet flavours found.
    • Finish
      88 88
      The finish brings it all together, long aftertaste, spices, sweetness, rich and balanced.
