  1. Dottore did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Deanston 10 yo 2008/2019 (56.6%, Cadenhead, Authentic Collection, bourbon hogshead, 276 bottles) Four stars and a half
    This might be raw. Colour: white wine. Nose: typical distillate-driven Cadenhead, this time with bags of tangerines and a saucerful of muesli (no secrets here), then rather classic chalks and lemons. It’s rather delicate, in fact, well-carved, precise… And just lovable, in fact. With water: fresh oriental bread, with a little aniseed and orange blossom water, and honeysuckle in the background. Sweet Vishnu, Deanston! Mouth (neat): a blend of fresh mirabelle and pear juices at first, then more on some IPA, with a citrusy hoppiness. Impeccable unflavoured young barley eau-de-vie from some good stills. With water: absolutely pristine, excellently fruity, with a very fresh and not-too-yeasty breadiness. Notes of flower syrup too. Mullein? Finish: medium, very clean, with more honeyness. Comments: a fantastic and authentic (no wonder it’s in this collection) young distillate-forward malt whisky, almost spiritual. Much more refined than expected.
    SGP:551 - 88 points.
