Whisky Reviews for Deanston 1997

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.62 points

  1. dRambo scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    very good sherry barrel (no dark sherry)
    actually not a particularly exciting dram, rather great because the distillate still shines through, typical Deanston sweetness, cereals and toasted notes are still recognizable - I like it.

  2. Buecherwurm scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Deanston 1997 WID: 125463
    21 years, Palo Cortado finish, 51.8%
    Nose: a really fine Sherrynase, drier than classic Oloroso, does not look set up or constructed, roasted aromas, coffee grounds, cocoa beans, roasted malt, the typical creaminess of Deanston
    Taste: a potpourri of berries and boiled sour cherries in distilled form, which does not create 10 YO of wet barrels, alcohol is well integrated
    Finish: medium in length, the roasted aromas dominate here and leave the malt
    Conclusion: A really good malt, but unfortunately not in the acceptable price range. Gladly more of such finishes
