I do not have any expectations on Deanston drams because I never had any that I remembered for longer than some hours and I doubt this one will change that legacy. Indeed, it did not! What else to say...
The colour is white wine and the nose is young and immature on mainly mashy aromas. Simply, unimpressive and not to my liking - how should I remember such a dram?
The taste is sweet on barley sugars, barley sugars and barley sugars... As I stated with the nose already: simple, unimpressive and not to my liking - how should I remember such a dram?
The initial mouthfeel is warming and a little hot. The finish is of medium length and adds some spices and a minor bitter note from the woods - at least some more impressions... but nevertheless, it stays not remarkable at all. Water turns the dram (even) more immature mashy and bitter - so forget about adding water...
